    If looks is all you're going for then it should be fine. You will most likely lose reception when you get any distance from the station.

    I cut my factory antenna to 14" and epoxied the ball back on top. Free and no noticeable loss in reception. That said.... I mostly listen to satellite radio or the USB.

    Thanks for the feedback! Looks mostly...I also listen to satellite and blue tooth, so reception isn't that big of a deal.

    Then short of cutting your factory antenna you should be good. I like the looks of the one you linked.
