OK Sooo..Bad news on the tow hooks...Man! Ebay reverted back to an old deleted address and even though i had checked everything before I paid, it still got mixed up and seller "Coppus" sent it to old address. I have tried to get ahold of him like 5 times and having huge mixup here to get this taken care of. I dont know what to do now. I have tried sending him email, now it says it got shipped to Tiffin Oh. DOH!! I live in Maine and both addresses were in Maine. Never went to either of them. Im stumped.

Wow, that is a stubby antenna! I bought one that was about 6" for my 06 SLT and my reception went to crap. I painted the ugly and long original in black, and installed it back on. Funny thing is that my new truck has the same ugly antenna. I wished they would use retractable ones.

I still get decent reception actually. I have noticed it drops off in hilly areas and under bridges etc ...thats to be expected , but I still get good reception on stations within 70 miles or so. I use only local stations anyway so its a no brainer for the stubby for me. Especially since I like the look of it, and it does not drag in the car wash, no need to take it off everytime like my old mast.
I use my Sat radio alot too, so that offsets any am/fm issues too.

Thats the truth. Mods are as addictive as smoking or drinking...but at least we have something to show for it! LOL

I have a 72 Barracuda, a 92 Dakota, a 05 VTX1800 street bike and my wife has a '11 Stang, and now we have the '12 Ram.......the credit cards are always busy...LOL

Good news! My tow hooks are back on track and the ebay guy came through...Kudos to him!! He resent them to the right address, no harm no foul! Great guy to work with too. Offered to pay the shipping the second time and declined it!! Great guy! Should be here by the 8th. Coming snail mail, but thats ok by me. Ill bide my time. Going ot price the lower facia instead of cutting mine up. i may try it first and then when( notice i said when not if) I screw it up I can just install the other one. LMAO...

BAH ,,,Been away from forum a bit and unable to get the tow hooks in yet. I am struggling with Trigeminal Neuralgia...It is really painful and anyone that has it knows what i mean. I have it on left side of my face and am not really into the whole brain surgery thing. I am working on getting it under control with meds but the VA is dragging their heels on the MRI needed to accurately diagnose the area of difficulty. Go figure.... So it will have to be a feel good day to get the hooks in. Really hoping for one soon!.. This sucks Good to get logged in and read a bit. Love this forum!
