Default Stock Antenna's?

What did you guy's do with the stock antenna's? I recently changed mine for a black 15 inch from Canadian Tire, and I am not overly impressed, it is not near stiff enough. I am now thinking of painting the stock one black and putting it back on. P.S I own a 2011 Black Ram Outdoorsman.

There are a number going with a stubby antenna but I've read many posts of this affecting reception. That's fine if you don't use the FM much.

Im using one from Sick Speed. It was brought up here and I love the look. Its a 4 inch, black with Carbon Fiber. But the reception is not the greatest. Our local radio gets picked up fine, but anything from neighboring citys does not get picked up like the stock did.

I did mine for looks only, I dont use the FM. Sat radio, and 30 gig ftw!

Can you pull the ball off the top trim it and glue the ball back on like most other antennas?

I picked up a small stubby from Ebay, it's rigid like the stock however way cooler. The reception is not all that bad considering how short it is.
