But when you go downtown & have 2 inches to spare on the underground parking, it's nice to see your antenna touch the asbestos ceiling first than the roof of your truck

We cut ours on the show cars...

I pulled mine off and tossed it in the back floorboard for several days. The audiobook on my iPhone wasn't impacted... ? LOL!

I don't listen to am/fm anyway, and with the hood mounted lights I have to run a shorty to keep the light from reflecting off of the antenna.

I'm just about sick of seeing mine flopping in the wind.
Need to see if I can do the antenna delete like you could on gm products.

If I still catch glare with the craven speed 4" I ordered, I'll be just capping it off.
