    I like the look of that antenna. I think I'll order one. Thanks for the link.

    I also got a aftermarket stubby antenna. Its not an antenna X but I think its around 13"s as well.:rolleyes: I thought it looked funny at first but it grew on me real quick. That and the fact that my factory antenna would hit my garage door after installing my lift.:eek: Stubby took care of that though!!!:D

    Not the best picture for the Antenna, but you can get an idea, and like everyone said, the reception is better than the stock antenna in my case and looks 100% better imo:

    Thanks for the reviews! I'll get one eventually just because of the looks. I've been worried about reception lost but I'll take your words for it. And if it the reception is worse I'll just hunt you all down one by one. :rolleyes:

    Got mine in Friday and installed on Saturday. Reception is great. Did anyone else have a problem getting all the silver threads hidden under the black base- or was it just my magic touch of making everything pertaining to my truck difficult? I'll take a pic tomorrow to show what I'm talking about. Free shipping = :thumbsup:

    How is the rubber holding up? I have never liked rubber antennas for the fact they eventually bend backwards. Just curious if this antenna does the same thing.

    Here's mine mounted. You have to zoom in to see what I'm talking about with the silver showing though...

    Got one, reception is worse on mine but it's probably the local radio stations. Looks better and doesn't hit the garage.
