    Anybody out there recommend an aftermarket or an antenna off of another Toyota model that is shorter than the Factory antenna on my 2008 DC? It's to long to get into my garage, it scrapes the garage door.

    I picked up a nice short antenna from my local Pep Boys for $20. Works well. Looks way better than the stock one. They had a good selection to choose from. I'd say give your local parts store a try.

    I got this really short antena from the dealership for around $25. the reception isn't very good, but I always use my ipod so it doesn't matter

    i removed the top ball, cut to length and epoxied it back on. it's an inch higher than my roof rack so I know my truck will fit in a garage or structure
