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.

    Original Stubby 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jul 2017

    Bought the original stubby for my 04 Jetta, and love the updated appearance. Reception in town (Portland, OR) is very acceptable overall. The OEM whip definitely pulls in a better signal for low power stations on the edge of the broadcast signal footprint. I'll carry the whip in the trunk and swap it when I'm traveling cross country. Great upgrade, and I would buy the CravenSpeed Stubby again.
