    I wanted an antenna that was long enough to use as a go/nogo gauge for my truck for garage doors and low limbs, the stock one was shorter than the highest point on my truck (snorkel/lightbar) so I went to my local pull a part and measured a few, found one that was perfect length for me off a Kia with the proper threads.

    Works just great, both as a height limit checker and as an antenna even if I haven't listened to the radio in years.

    Junkyard just let me take it free.

    If you don't use tour radio and have no alternative need like me I'd just remove the internal mast and put a dummy plug in the hole.

    I have a low overhead garage door and the stock antenna would clang across every time I parked inside. Replaced with a 21" antenna (A417-TY) from TheAntennaSource. No more annoying clanging, AM/FM still works, looks OEM, nobody else knowns the difference. Cost was like $25.
