I've searched and searched...does anyone know if the lower profile antenna uses the same mounting holes as the larger "tear drop" antenna on the early 06's?

I just hate the look of that thing on the roof... I've just bought the Terk combiner for the two-wire receiver and placed a Sirius antenna from one of their plug-n-play receivers on the trunk to see how reception will be. Maybe I'll just have a bodyshop plug the holes on the roof and paint to match. Or paint the low profile antenna and put that on the roof.

No and the badder news is the systems are not the same that would allow you to just swap antenna. The smaller one has a single cable and the shark fin has 2. So in order to do this, you would have to buy the complete system. I have looked into this.....

yes but Terk sells a piece that allows you to use the new single connection antennas with the older two wire systems.

I currently have that piece and have disconnected the roof antenna and connected the single wire antenna from a plug-n-play receiver - i don't see how the low profile antenna would be different....

Well slap my mouth.....didn't know that existed. Well then the new antenna may work after all, but I do not know about the hole differences (if any) between the 2.

I am curious now....

anyone...anyone...bueller?

I haven't even been able to find someplace that sells JUST the factory antenna (the smaller, flatter one, not the teardrop one from the early 06's).

Anyone have any information on this?

Have you checked Mopar Super Center? They are a great help when it comes to parts. If it's not on the web site, give them a call and see what thay can do.

looks as though you and I are the only one interested in this. Yes, I dealt with MSC before - great bunch of guys. I guess I'll put a call in tomorrow...or maybe call some junkyards.
