    Firestiks look better for sure, however, the steel whip has much better reception and range especially through the mississippi woods

    imo i'd stick with the 4ft or even go with a 3ft if you're attaching it to your hood, assuming you'll be driving at highway speeds and the spring is a need too

    i have a spring already and i may not put it on the hood, i might just move my toolbox up a little and mount it back there on the driver side, but a firestick is definately in my future, i cant haul kayaks without my whip havin to be tied down

    Ran into a couple problems this week, first thing i found was that my leaf springs look like a n over my axle instead of a u, then tonight my battery that i just bought about 4 months ago is acting like it doesnt wanna carry the stuff i have on there, so my next plans were gonna be window tint then winch but now their more than likely gonna be either all pro expedition leafs or a custom leaf project then a dual battery additon
