Stock Status:

Built to last forever

Every Stubby is made here in the US of A and is specifically designed for its particular application. They are machined out of 6061 billet aluminum and then powder coated with a black textured finish, so you know that a Stubby will never break, chip, or fade.

Reception is Key

Not only does the Stubby look great, it actually works great too. If you are curious about reception, our best advice is to read the reviews. You can see that some customers have definitely had problems getting good reception. I can assure you it is statistically uncommon though, and we always accept and pay for returns if you are not satisfied with your Stubby for any reason.

3 Variations Available

The Stubby antenna replacement comes in 3 styles, each one is tailor fit to it’s specific application. The Original Stubby ranges from about 3-4 inches, depending on the vehicle. The Stubby Jr’s are 2 inches tall to be sure to fit under your garage door. The Bullet Style Stubby is between 4.25 and 5.5 inches (.338 or .50 cal), again depending on the vehicle. They are also anodized, rather than powder coated. To see exactly what size your's will be, just select your model in the drop down menus above.

Custom Engraving

If you want something all your own, check out our customized antenna option. We don't really care what you want to say on your Stubby; put your forum handle, license plate, dog's name or whatever; as long as it is 10 characters or less.

Motor On with a Stubby

Here at CravenSpeed it all started with MINIs. We've got one from each generation sitting in our parking lot, all in chili red. We designed the very first version of The Stubby for our first Mini Cooper back in 2005. A lot has changed for us since then, but The Stubby has remained a popular addition to any MINI.

    Neat little antenna!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2018

    So....it’s an antenna, and it’s short. But it’s fantastic! Easy install. Works just like the factory antenna, looks like the antenna Mini should have put there, and is as solid as it gets. No discernible signal loss on FM or SXM. Bravo! Now....to get one for the wife’s Countryman!!

    Good but not perfect 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th May 2018

    Antenna looks great and works well for the most part. Did notice some degradation of signal in a few small areas near hills, buildings, etc. where the xm radio never had a signal problem before.

    Beautiful antenna 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Apr 2018

    This antenna looks amazing on my r53. The installation was stupid easy and just a huge upgrade from the old long one.

    Soooo long RC car look! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Nov 2017

    At first I got the wrong version and thought, what the heck? Then realized I ORDERED the wrong version, quick note to support and the correct one (the one I SHOULD have ordered) was here a day later! Great service! The Stubby itself is great, looks good, SUPER easy to install, and my reception is at least as good as the stock antennae. I don't use the radio much since I use AUX most of the time though.

    Thanks for the great support and a great product!

    Stylish, awesome reception, even better HD! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2017

    I knew I would like the look of it on my Countryman, but wasn't sure about the reception. Whoa! It's better than the antenna I had on there (made in C*#%! --similar in looks, but not even close on quality).
    Installation took 5 seconds...you don't need to be a Rocket Scientist to install (no offense to R.S.'s).
    I wish I had known about The Stubby sooner...everything comes in clearer (including HD channels). Do I hear more road trips?!
    But now that I'm a happy, proud owner of one, all is right with the world ☺️

    Mini Aerial for Mini Clubman 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2017

    Delivered very quickly from across US. Strong small shipping box. A kid could fit it (with a step, of course). Good reception (all urban, so far). Never have to remove that disintegrating original aerial for the car wash again. Recommended!

    Great add-on! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2017

    Super fast shipping and the antenna took 2 mins to install. It looks great on the car and works almost as well as the stock one!

    perfect fit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Dec 2016

    Its a perfect fit. Looks good and not over powering. Would have been a little kooler if it was painted like the British Flag. On line there was one but didn't work on my yr.

    Bullet Proof 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Dec 2016

    I ordered the bullet shaped stubby antennae and I am impressed by the quality of it. Obviously, installation is easy (you can screw in a light bulb, right?). The antennae seems very durable and my reception is good.

    Works as it should 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2016

    Got a stubby for my Mini. Looks cool, but reception is kinda meh. Maybe I got a bad one. I do a lot of driving away from metro areas, so maybe that's it. Works OK around town.

    Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2016

    Perfect replacement for the stock antenna. Looks better, reception is excellent.

    Works better than the OEM antenna! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2016

    I had somewhat lowered expectations since I've read mixed reviews about replacing my stock antenna, but I will just have to say that the Stubby Jr. exceeded my expectations because it actually works better than the stock OEM antenna. Radio stations come in clearer with this on. I'm pretty happy with it, so thanks Craven Speed!

    Solid piece. Looks great. Works great. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Feb 2016

    Stock antenna began to split and look nasty. Finally pulled the trigger on the stubby antenna. This is a solid, substantial antenna. It does not flex. I've seen no difference in performance so far. Thank you for offering such well-engineered products, and for supporting White Roof Radio.
