Default How to get rid off your radio antenna and use the CB one instead.
I had 3 antennas on my Jeep: one for the radio, one for the HAM, and one for the CB. Soon I’ll need yet another one for the GMRS. This is a personal opinion, but all I needed was one of those propeller hats...

I’ve installed it several months ago, and not only I didn’t experience any issues with it, but it actually increased my radio reception, both for analog and digital (HD radio).

Installation is straightforward, the biggest issue is to remove the cable that connects the original factory radio antenna. I had to cut mine. The hole left on the fender can be covered by one of this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

PS: this should not be a JK specific solution. It should work for any vehicle.
