Hi guys was looking around to see if anybody has done an upgrade from Antenna whip and base to a sharkfin on a 2013 GC SRT8 and if it is possible to do so.Whip hits roller door when arriving home and it pisses me off, as I would like to also upgrade my wife's 2011 GC Limited . The sharkfin also looks better.:)

Yeah, been done plenty here Vini. Just throw it int he search section & will show them all. Nearly all so far have come colour-matched. Maybe we can do an Aussie bulk-buy ;)

Though on that note, I was about to do the same and wondering if any better brands to go for (some cheap [email protected] on ebay of course). Also my radio reception is pretty poor - hope not worse with a fin - head it "doesn't hurt it" but assume won't improve.

PS - Visual Garage was one I was considering so far: http://www.visualgarage.com/home.html

Bono392 thanks, I have checked out the visual garage website and looks like a pretty simple install. On recepition it looks like it would be worse due to the fact that it will have a shorter reception point. Also the 2014 has a sharkfin and looks great.

I think that there is only one manufacturer of the shark fin that actually works as an antenna. I noticed no difference in reception since swapping mine. They do come painted, but if you wrap it with vinyl and remove the wrap the paint will come off. They do color match well though.

Bumping an old thread, I am looking for a sharkfin for my Jeep, unable to locate and the Visualgarage website has been down for several months. I also tried emailing VG with no reply. Any reason why I couldn't do a swap from a 2014?

My sat reception blows. If it's 'cause of the sharkfin, then I'll be doing the opposite.

Hmm interesting... could location play a part or did your 2006 SRT8 not have any issues?

Make sure you contact the BBB if you do not get any response from them.

I remember I got mine last year and I think it took around 3 weeks. They said it had to be painted. Maybe I just got lucky before things went down. They do look good though. Sorry for them being a pain. At least you can dispute the charge with your card company.
