    Does anyone have the part number for the scion antenna mod? I saw a post about it, but it linked to an ebay purchase that was no longer there. Anyone?

    Yep, the stock antenna keeps hitting my garage door. I thought the Scion antenna mod looked the best.

    Believe it or not I actually found a decent looking shorty antenna at a local auto parts store, I think advanced auto parts. Its black and kinda flexible and looks nice. Its thicker than stock.

    would this shorter one (8in) reduce the reception of your radio?

    If anything, it'll effect your AM reception since a lower freq requires a longer cut antenna. As long as you don't cut it too much you probably won't notice a difference.

    Fitment is perfect. I can't comment on a reception comparison because I have XM and, come to think of it, I don't even know if my standard radio even works!

    I put a shorty on and I am very disappointed with the lack of reception.
