I have been looking at those small black/carbon fiber ones on ebay and amazon. But I worry about how much the signal will be affected.

Removed some old stickers that came with the jeep...

The dealer one gave me some trouble. I swear they make them particularly hard to remove on purpose

Also, tackled some of the pine sap that is just everywhere. Got a couple panels done at least

They're worthless...you'd get better reception with a coat hanger...i had one installed for like 5 minutes and took it off. Just picked up a 13" one at pep boys in hopes that it will work better!

I've had my 13" Oreilly antenna for 4ish years now and it still works great, even after straightening and repainting it after it got a 45 degree bend on a trail

I know this is a stupid question, but are the struts supposed to look bent? When mine came in the boxes were all damaged and I thought the struts were bent, but since they are both like that in the same exact spot, I'm thinking they are supposed to be like that (sorry, this is my first experience with a lift)
They are fine. The wobble in that plate is so the spring can seat itself around the strut.

FWIW, I am very interested in seeing where all those bulbs end up going. First, the 9012s don't have a reflector in the tip. Is l'bro just going to just going to throw them in there like that? Second, there's the HIDs. Details, please!!
