Not a fan of the tall, silver stock antenna and those shorty rubber ones work like poo. Found this little number at a local Advance Auto and snatched it up. Comes with a bunch of adapters to fit many vehicles. Even with the riser it looks great and goes well with my monochrome Sport with black accents. Radio reception is just as good as with the stocker. Unfortunately, I already threw the packaging away, but it was a regular stock item.

That's about as small as I want to go. The carbon fiber shortys are really just caps it appears.

How much did that run you? I haven't been able to find one like it at my local AutoZ/Advance.

I just got my 8" stubby antenna today, I'll be installing it later. Its smooth though, no ridges, also comes with multiple adapters and risers. Paid $13 shipped from user mangowalk.

Git to becareful with the smooth ones they like to whistle go look at your stock ant see the grooves and ridges why you think they are there so they dont whistle lol

Damn...wish I would have saw this before I bought the smooth I got at a local parts store. Ever since I installed it I've been hearing an occasional whistle. Now I know where its coming from :LOL:

lol.

Glad I read this thread. I want a shorter antenna but not too short, and I don't want any issues. I'm gonna cut mine and spray it black. Thanks for the tips!
