    Cj-7 Radio antenna help

    So in my infinite wisdom I removed my old AM/FM radio antenna of my 1986 Cj-7 and trashed it. I was figuring I would easily find a OEM replacement. My old antenna mount was round but the only "OEM" replacements I can seem to find are triangular shaped antenna mounts. Now its entirely possible that my antenna was a aftermarket replacement. My best guess would be the triangle mount was on later models and the round mount was something on newer Cj's?

    It does, thank you. Looks like I had a aftermarket replacement then.

    My '84 CJ-7 also has the rectangle mount and it's mounted up in that space just under the top door hinge mount.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
