Question on replacement antennae

Hello everyone I am new here and just got my first "taco." Just got a 2013 tacoma this week and noticed that the stock antennae is really long. Anyway I have been researching and found a couple that i really like. the one I really like, I am not sure if it fits (4.7" Inch Toyota TRD Real Carbon Fiber External Short Antenna). Does any one know for sure if it fits? I would really hate to buy it and it doesn't fit at all. Anyway here is the two I am looking at.

and

The Stubby Antenna for Toyota Tacoma (this i am sure it fits)

If you got tools I used saw (hooked up to air compressor) and chopped mine so it's about 1/4" above the cab that way it's shorter and if it hits in garages then I know to stay away lol! O and then I glue back on the ball tip thing for a stock look and doesn't affect reception at all

I went with this based off other recommendations:

It's longer than what you saw but it was inexpensive and it fit. I listen to sirius so I can't comment on how well it functions but others say it works well.
