    =p
    At my old place i had a thin driveway i had to back out of and the stock antenna would hit an air conditioning unit on the side of the house. I changed mine out to something like yours. i like it. No problems. Of course thats when the suspension started sagging. I wonder if that had something to do with it:p

    I just ordered this one of ebay for $10. Another member here or on TN recommended it. We'll see how good the reception is since it's so small.

    Yes, it's originally for a Passat I believe. I saw it on someone else's truck in another thread and thought it looked good. For only $10 it's worth the try.
