This is for my fairing on motorcycle, with Sony AM/FM, bluetooth unit and 2 - Polk 6 X 9 speakers I installed in it, that i purchased from Crutchfield..

Not totally necessary but oh so much nicer to be able to extend the antenna wire. They really dont leave any spare wire so if you are attempting to install a new radio you are going to have one HECK of a time b/c there is no room to work unless you use one of these. [ James  Jun 17, 2017 ]

This extension is vital to the installation. With adding a new head unit ( stereo) , along with adding a satellite receiver, it gets pretty tight behind the dash. I've seen several jeeps that also had a very short factory antenna cord, so don't delay on this , you'll thank Dexter later......
