some members went with a 3 inch

some noticed a slight loss of reception when using AM/FM part of radio, when using the shorter antennas

Tried the 3 inch, lousy reception, going to try 5 inch next. Good thing the stubbys are cheap.

Reception doesn't matter I listen to sirius, this is just cosmetic! So black or white?

Where are you guys buying your stubby's from?

Definitely get black to match the rims would look great IMO

I'd go white to color match the body of the truck. And you don't see many white antennas out there either so you would definitely stand out!
