I'm starting to develop premature smile lines from the constant grinning. That is one smokin colour you got! Love the tonneau cover and stubby antenna.

Damn I was hoping there was a cure for the stupid smile on my face. I just can't get over all the compliments I keep getting on this Ram. It's incredible! Everyone just loves the color. I have to say I'm loving everything about this truck, hell it's even getting better mileage than my old Dakota! Thanks for all the compliments....I'm off to go stand in the driveway....looking and drooling!

Truck looks great, and like everyone else I love that color. Where did you get your tonneau?

Whoops missed the reception questions. Sorry guys....here is the dirt on the stubby antenna.
It picks up static (for lack of a better word) from florescent lighting something fierce. Notice it when parking in front of 7-eleven getting my slurpee fix on and also under the canopy at the gas station.
The only other issue with the stubby is that FM range is reduced. I put the antenna on after picking her up from the dealership (180 miles from home) on the drive back I noticed I couldn't pick up my usual FM stations at the same places. My estimate is about a 20 mile reduction in FM range when on the fringe of the signal.
On the AM side of the dial I haven't noticed any reduction in signal strength or interference.
Overall I am impressed with the stubby. When cruising down the highway or stuck in stop and go in the city there are no issues with reception. The only real reception reduction is when your coming to the fringe of an FM signal, it will drop out quicker than before. I'm a happy camper with it's fit, finish and performance.

I picked it up here in Edmonton from a local truck accessory place.

There are better deals to be found on the net but when you live in the frozen north shipping kills!

We sell them at the shop... Truxedo actually has MSRP.... the prices can't go below a certain price... but... if your online... check for shipping... that's your variable. Good luck.

I got my TRUXEDO TRUXPORT from www.got-chrome.com they listed it as to low to show the manufacturer name. I got it for 250 shipped. and everywhere else it was 300 or more. Could not afford the low profile on so went with the truxport.. Its still nice I have had my ram for 3 weeks and already had 2 other ram owners ask about my cover.
