Radio Ariel replacement for mu

Postby tonkamu » Thu Nov 23, 2017 3:36 pm

Been trying to find whats available for Isuzu mu ariel aftermarket ones just don't fit snug. Do bighorns share the same ariel? IS there a brand with part number that works well for MU?

It sticks on the inside of the window so it doesnt get caught on anything. Also works well

Just reading up about those window Ariel's they suffer from poor reception in hilly areas. Plus I have a hole on my panel i'd like to fill

Ive used 3 aerials of the type I posted and they have been fine and as good as the factory aerial. I have a 4th sitting here to replace the one in the current bighorn after a windscreen smash
