    There was a thread about this posted afew days ago if you search for it, I think it was said that you need to get behind the plastic in the wheel well to get to the base

    In order to separate the antenna base from the fender you have to unscrew that chrome thing around the mast with the slots in it and then unbolt the base from behind the fender liner. Should be a 10mm bolt behind the fender liner. It's a pain in the ass to unscrew the chrome piece. Just did it on a truck at work last week, actually had to cut it off cause it was seized on.

    Also to disconnect the antenna cable from the truck there is a plug behind the passenger side "a" pillar.
