I am happy, just got my stubby antenna in the mail today and installed it. I ordered it from Craven Speed. It was a very easy install, comes with 2 adapters for differant generation Rams, and the adapter screws in with an allen wrench. Then I screwed it into the antenna mount on the truck. Done! I like the look, reception is reduced but not a great deal. I still get all my local stations fine. I would not try to get a station half way across timbuktoo because that dont fly :)
* I would add this note to help with install since instructions dont come in the box, and it is left up to common sense, unless you look at the website for installation instructions. When holding the antenna I suggest using a piece of rubber between your pliers and antenna while installing adapter stud. ( piece of an old hose or innertube, I used a broken vacuum cleaner belt that I saved for just such applications) That will save you from scratching it.

Then I dropped in to my local Advanced Auto Parts store and bought a K&N filter to drop in the stock intake box. I dont see any noticeable differance in driving it, but I do notice a really slight, but kool, increase in intake sound. So I have 2 new kool things....and so it begins. :)
(I also kept my cargo net from my 2500 for this truck.)

Also if anyone can tell me a thread that explains how to add the Mods to my list for my profile I would appreciate it :) I tried it an failed.

If nothing else, you will never buy another air filter. I have one as well.

This is true, I have always used K&N filters in my vehicles. They have proven to be good products for me and I always go with a good thing.
Thanks to all for the great reviews :)
