Default Shorty Antenna Change???

Is this just a "unscrew the old and screw in the new one" or is there wires to connect?

If there is I can't imagine that being to difficult.

I was thinking maybe an 8" black antenna.

Will this give me good reception?

I've read something on this before but figured just to re-ask the question.

Thanks!!!!!!!!

Default Hey Thanks Guys!!!

If I would have "hurried" it, I could have changed it in about 30 seconds.

I put in a black 14" rubber antenna.

Thought the rubber one would be more rigid. I suppose some "knot head" will be tempted to bend it over.

It cost me under $10 so what the hell I can change it as often as I get tired of it.

Reception is still OK.

I have the rubber stubbie and it screwed right in, looks great and works great. I do listen to mostly satelite but I have tested out the Am and fm and it sounded clear. Those stock antenna's to me were to long and looked ugly. Not to mention it would smack into branches all the time.

+1 did the same with mine. It's a 2 minute mod and I didn't notice any difference in reception at all.
