What antenna do you have on your Tacoma?

So I want to get a shorter antenna for my 2012... and it got me to thinking: how many people replace their antenna? Either for repairs, function or looks.

Post your brand, length, and a pic, if you have one. I want to get ideas. As of right now, I'm thinking of going with a 6" rigid stainless steel replacement.

I have one from Autozone, forget the length but shorter than OEM. Be careful with those stibbie antenna, that damn pole assembly isn't exactly easy to replace.

^ antenna-x is the best. I've had all kinds of shorties on my taco and this is the only one thats fully bendable and still has the best reception. Sounds just as good as my oem antenna.

I have a 8" shorty. I got it mostly for looks. But its nice not to have it hitting off anything than flinging back and forth. I listen to Siruis, so reception was not a big deal to me. Got mine from www.shortyantennasource.com.
