Default 2013 1500 Limited Stock Antenna Removal

Please help. I cannot get my stock 33" nightmare antenna off of my truck. Did the dealer lock tight this thing? I thought it just screwed off but even with pliers and after some "slight damage" to hopefully what I'll be able to replace I still can't get this thing off. Please help me.

Thanks any suggestions pics/videos. I know this is simple and It's driving me crazy but even with a pair of Channel locks I can't get the antenna off

it should just thread off, Mine was barely tight. There are 2 flats on the antenna (the tapered part at the bottom) that a wrench will fit on (8mm i think) and it should just come right off... its weird that you're having this much trouble.

Use a wrench, not pliers.

I've had mine off 6 or 8 times in the last month, put the black antenna from my F150 on it to see if I liked it, then went back to the original, then took it off and dipped it, it's been off every week at the car wash, and I had it off last night when I was RainXing my windshield...

Default I finally got it off

ThanK you all for the helpful suggestions. Yesterday I just went to work with a set of Channel Locks. It finally came off. I don't know if it was glued or what I'm 335lbs and I consider myself fairly strong but after this... Back to the gym LOL. Only said part I rashed up that little black rubber part under the antenna a little but it VERY hard to notice.

Thanks again!
