Question Removing Factory Antenna?

I am thinking aabout getting one of those shortie antenna's but I am not sure about removing the factory antenna.

Do you just take a pair of plyers to the base of the antenna?

I was able to unscrew mine with my bare hands! But yeah, you can just use a regular pare of pliers to get it started.

I got a shorty antenna too, all you have to do is match up the thread size to your truck and screw it in by hand, ....super easy!

Where can you get those short antenna's?

My truck is black and that antenna really sticks out there like a sore thumb.

Does the shortie affect radio reception?

Thanks!

I just put one on my truck and it is one of the easiest mods you can do to your truck. My reception didn't change and I had my radio playing the entire time I changed mine out just to check reception.

I also put on a short antenna. I do notice a slight loss of signal, but the antenna looks great and I dont have to remove it at the car wash.
