I think your jumper connection is below the dash on the passenger side but I'm not positive. I have a puck antenna that I took off my 2016 Ram and replaced it with a sharkfin. I can send it to you if you want to test to see if it's your antenna.

I'm going to tear into it here in a bit so I'll let you know. I also have to replace the radio antenna because I guess he removed the fakra connector from it and I'm having issues with it.
