I got my shorty at Advanced Auto Parts for less than $10. The base is large enough to put on and take off without a wrench... easy for car washes. I only use the radio for AM and have noticed no signal loss compared to the long antenna.

Ram Engineers: Why are you still using external rod antennas? (daaaaang!)

Picked one up today and it's on. Thanks for the great tip. The am, fm and satellite all sounds the same as they did with the long metal antenna. And, it was so much easier to put the truck cover on tonight. Now, I can just use the old one for jousting!

Did you use that part number from Former Gorilla or just buy a local antenna mast?

Definitely something I am going to consider getting now.

I did not use any part number. I just went to Pep Boys first. They had short antennas but only in metal. Then, I drove over to Kragen/Oreilly car parts. They had it on the wall with other antennas. I could buy just the rubber antenna or spend a buck more and get the base too. I thought a dollar off for not needed the base and cable connector didn't seem like that much of a savings but since I only wanted the rubber antenna that is the package I bought. I then took my metal one off, screwed this one right on. They had a few male/male screw combinations and I just used the one that screwed into my old base and the bottom of the new antenna. This is one of my best mods as it makes it so much easier to put that huge cover on each night. No fighting with the big metal antenna that tries to poke your eye out!

Just installed one a couple of days ago and everything (AM,FM, SAT) works just the same. Got it at autozone $5.83 (Mil discount). Thanks for the tip!
