    Hey,

    just wanted to share a plug I found for my antenna delete. I know the common solution for shrinking down the antenna was either bondo or a stubby antenna. I was about to go the stubby route but I found a plug that fits like a glove!

    The best part is, I still get all the stations! Anyways, if anyone wants to know the part just post and I'll let you know. If not, just enjoy the pictures!

    Thanks.

    I cut the antenna at the base and capped the wires. So I guess technically I don't have a physical antenna, but I am still able to pick up radio stations just fine.

    33 is young around here? I'll take it. You are correct though, I steam music through my phone's Bluetooth to the truck's Pioneer head unit .

    Your metal antenna may save you one day when your kids lock your keys in the truck...just saying. You can use it to hit the unlock/lock button. Don’t knock the antenna
