Hey all, just checking to see if any of you know if there is a replacement (preferably chrome) antenna base piece? Mine is black, well was, but is faded like no tomorrow. I was looking at putting a chrome one on, but can't seem to find one anywhere. Thanks!

Dave

Planning on taking mine off and painting it black today. My old '09 had this problem bad! Thought I'd try on this to see how it turns out and then move to the wiper cowl next!

^Like the above was mentioned, your best bet is to remove it, and paint it chrome if you want it chrome or paint etc.

That's kinda what I figured the response would be. It's just wierd how that is the only piece that is faded so bad on the exterior, especially down here in this Arkansas heat. I'll have to pull it off soon and give it a shot at painting it. Thanks!

I sanded mine smooth and primed and painted it to match the truck it has held up pretty well.

Hayden, that does look very good! Thanks for posting a pic. The weather has been miserable down here, so maybe I can get to it this coming weekend. Thanks again!

Had mine replaced under warranty, figure I will let them spend their money. After they won't replace it that stuff back to black or whatever it's called. Or maybe give that Krylon plastic paint a try. I really don't see it as a big issue happens on all black plastic on any car after a while this antenna part is just cheaper than most....hell it cost's 85 cents retail.

Wow! I like it.... How well does the shorty antenna work? Any difference (better or worse) than factory antenna?

reception with the shorty is not as good as the stock antenna was, but i only ever listen to it in the morning on the way to work so it doesn't bother me.
