Be imaginative, just put a piece of electrical tape, shrink wrap, or put a small piece of vacuum hose like I did! I'ts going to hit it no matter what! It just won't have that metal on metal sound! Hope that helps?

Bend your antenna a bit by hand. A friend did a little bit of a jog in his kind of like this..



Worked out good, and looks almost stock.

One thing I have been wondering about the windshield lights, do you get a bad glare off your hood?

that's what i did, my buddy did the bottom bend but he left the top angled back and it followed the contour of the windshield, looks pretty cool too

I bent mine on my old TJ and my JK just like the pic... people think it's a custom antenna and ask where they can get one...

I bent my antenna also, & it works good. Just make sure you bend it towards the front or the back of the Jeep, I bent mine to the outside & it hit everything on the trails!

I did the electrical tape as well..works just fine... and yes i do get a glare off of the hood..KC makes light shields that may help. I dont know whether they do or not but it is an option.

Mine is angled back. I drilled two small holes in the light bracket and used a tiny zip tie to keep the antena back. (The previous owner just let the antenna beat and scratch the hell out of the light.)
