    Thanks! Mine didn't survive the fender removal very well. Guess I'll look around the audio threads and see if I can figure out a decent aftermarket option.

    A few people have used this:

    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-MHcmNF...-Antenna.html?tab=review#customer-reviews-tab

    I bought one and never used it since we were able to make my stock work. Let me dig it up in the garage and I will beat the Crutchfield price.

    You listen to the radio? I just cut my antenna, but I don't like listening to the radio.

    I usually listen to pandora but do listen to it from time to time. Didn't really hurt my feelings when I cut it to remove the fenders though.

    That is what I have been using the last 7 years. I ran all the wires up the a pillar and mounted the little box next to the rear view mirror. I have been happy with it. If I was o do it again I would go the same route.

    Yup, the reviews aren't great on Crutchfield but its the best option if someone wasn't able to do what I did.

    Think it all depends on where you mount the receiver box. I did the audio in trick to the stock stereo and only really listen to the radio when I can't use Pandora or my mp3. So when I need out it does what it is supposed to do. I don't have the one from crutchfield but it is very similar.
