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.

    Needs to be modified to fit correctly... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2017

    I bought a Stubby antenna, and quickly found that it would only screw in a couple of threads, in the antenna socket. I actually had to remove some of the material on the antenna body to allow it to screw in farther. I could have bought a longer allen socket stud, to get it to extend further, but that required a trip to a specialty hardware store. Removing an 1/8th inch of material from the base, made it screw in far enough to work correctly

    Perfect size, great signal 5 Star Review

    I purchased the Stubby Jr. after the stock antenna broke off when it hit the top of the garage. I was worried that I would notice a decrease in radio signal from the smaller antenna. I am very happy to report that I notice no difference in radio reception with the Stubby Jr. antenna! For those Subaru owners with the roof rack on their SUV, the top of the Stubby Jr. is at the same height as the roof rack, so the antenna does not protrude out above the rack at all. I would highly recommend this product.

    Ordering was easy and it was mailed out fast and arrived in a couple of days. Screwed right on and the radio is back to working like its old self. Liked the price and that it was made in the US.

    Perfect for my low garage 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Dec 2016

    This little antenna was the perfect solution for us on our 2014 Subaru Forester! The original antenna hit the garage door every time we pulled in or out making a scary noise! The problem has been eliminated and the reception is as good as with the original antenna. It came within days of ordering, the whole way across the country. Thanks so much!!

    Excellent Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2016

    Bought the stubby to replace the roof antenna on my 2013 Subaru Forester. I like the idea that it is about 3 1/2 inch shorter than the factory. Looks better too! I receive excellent reception, works as well or even better than the original and is definitely quality built. No more having to remove antenna at the car wash which is great, no problems with brushes. Overall, outstanding product.
