    So i cant decide which whip i wanna get. Its inbetween a magnet mounted Wilson Lil Wil, a magnet mounted Wilson 500, a 3 Ft. firestik or a 4 Ft. firestik, or dual Firestiks. Looking to get the best range i can get along with a good look for the truck, not tryng to have the whip make the setup look funny. So what do yal have or reccommend?

    I run a 5' Wilson FGT5 on my Tacoma. Noticed a large improvement in Tx range when I switched from a 4' Wilson Flex. Having that extra antenna above the roof of the truck is beneficial, that's something to bear in mind
