    First upgrade installed!
    Hate the big ugly, gets caught off-roading and in car washes radio antenna so replaced it with the same Cravenspeed antenna I had on my JK. Although it doesn't state it works on JLs, it does. Jeep didn't change the antenna with the refresh.

    Pros: Looks good and much less likely to get caught up in a car wash or while off-roading
    Cons: Reduced radio antenna performance. I live near Austin, so the times I do listen to FM, although I still get stations, its not as good. If you live in the country, far from FM radio stations, this antenna might not be for you. I listen mostly to Sirius, USB stick and from phone so I don't care too much about regular radio.

    Today I got my phone and music situation setup. Went with the WizGear magnetic mount and a 1ft Anker lightning cable for charging and Apple CarPlay. I also put all my MP3 tunes onto a SanDisk USB and used the port in the center console. All are working great.
