    I bought a 4 foot NGP firestik last night online. Now i am having second thoughts that i should have got a 3 foot. I am worried my 05 tacoma is gonna look like a damn RC car with a 4 foot. Im debating email the company to see about changing my order. Pics with 4 foot antennas and 3 foot antennas would be helpful thanks alot.

    4' firestik will look fine on your rig...

    i have 4' whips on mine... whips look kinda RC-ish, but not so bad...

    if you had one of those 8' highway patrol whips, then, yah, it might look like an RC car, but at least you will reach some good range... haha
