Cravenspeed "The Stubby" antenna

Searched and didn't really find any comparison pics, just pics of the new antenna installed. I wanted a short antenna because I like the way they look and never use my terrestrial radio (Sirius and iPhone). They shipped it quick; I ordered Sunday night and it arrived today, Wednesday. Not bad for going across the country during the holidays and standard shipping.

This thing is solid, and looks great. I like the way it follows the contours of the antenna base instead of being a flat base that looks like an afterthought. Two thumbs up to Cravenspeed!

This is my first offical "mod".

I have been contemplating getting this little stubby guy; however, I'm still unsure about the quality of reception. Has it been similar to stock antenna? I also have navigation with built in HD radio, I'm wondering if a change in antenna would impact the quality of sound?

This was one of the first mods I did when I first bought my car. There has been no difference in reception from the original Ford antenna as far a I can tell. Great price and quality, just get it. It's the only shorty that actually looks like it belongs on the car as a stock antenna

I don't really get the shorty antenna. The stock one is already pretty small. I guess it just doesn't bother me as much.

I'm now looking for a stock antenna. The shorty one the previous owner installed on my car can't pick up any of stations I listen to in the morning. Sure I can use my phone for talk radio shows, but data limits limit the listening time for a 1.5 hour drive

Reception depends where you live. Someone in the midwest plains isn't going to be as limited as someone in a mountainous region. FM is line of sight...

I don't get why exterior antennas still exist at all. My Grand Marquis had the antenna inside the rear window. My Equinox had an all in one satellite radio and terrestrial antenna.

+1 The only exterior part I dislike about our mustangs is that ugly antenna. I'll take the rear window EVEN if it meant not as good reception. Awhile back someone did a antenna delete, its not much but of an exterior mod made a huge improvement on the overall look of our cars IMO.

Id agree I think the stock one looks better

Just thinking outside the box here, anybody know the thread size of the antenna? Seems like it might be a good spot to securely mount my GoPro camera as opposed to using the suction cup on the window or side of the vehicle. Of course it's not 1/4"x20, already checked. It's slightly smaller. Might see what could be done with 3D printing...

I got my shorty antenna fixed. This morning it seemed to have been worse with reception, checked it 30 minutes ago and found it working itself loose. So I tightened it the best I could even though there's no wide base to really grip it, only the rod itself turns on a threaded stud. Reception is great ATM, it's even picking up several HD stations here To my surprise, the HD sounds vastly better than regular broadcasted stereo!

The local carwashes make you take of your antenna and if you don't and their equipment breaks it, it's all on you. The shorty antenna poses no problem.

Of course I have had my car since July 12th, 2012 and it's only been hand washed. I haven't had any problems in receiving local stations and I have Sirius Satellite for distant trips.

Which stubby antenna do you have? Something good to be on the lookout for.

And HD radio should sound better. It's a digital signal compared to an analog, think of it as HDTV versus standard. I will check out my reception on the drive home today, but with nothing to compare against, as long as it picks up a few stations I will think it's fine.

You can make your own stubby in about thirty seconds and for about 50 cents. The antennas are fiberglass and can be cut easily with a pair of wire cutters. Cut it off at the top of the boot. Then go to your favorite parts store and get a vacuum line cap for about 50 cents. Stick it on the antenna and voila! I did all three of my cars this way and found no degradation of reception. Looks just like the commercial versions but practically free. This works for the earlier metal antennas also but they are a bit harder to cut. Go for it.

2 reasons why i find it stupid to replace something so trivial...why are you taking your car through a car wash?! Go through a self service hand wash station if you cant wash your car at home. I live in an apt now away from family so i no longer have access to a garage or hose to wash my car, but I get free hand washes at work so its all good, lol

I think it's the Scott Drake antenna that CJ pony parts sells.

I had tried this and the vacuum cap started to discolor to light gray after a couple of weeks, and it looked exactly like what I had done . . . cut the original down and cheaply capped it. The Cravenspeed shorty looks more professional and it's a relatively inexpensive mod. It works, it looks nice and I'm happy. Just like anything else, it's a style thing just like fake scoops and strips. Whatever ya like, just go with

Interesting, mine are all still black after several years. Easy fix with a shot of black spray paint.

I have no idea what you do for work, but I will be worried about scratching my car with those free hand washes. Just cuz of the same materials they use on every other car. I'm just guessing here, it could be a pro detailing shop afterall.

I believe it's a 7/32's cap...got mine at Autozone. No issues or cap fading. But I normally keep my car in the garage and out of the ol' hot sun.

No issues I noticed driving around this morning flipping thru FM stations. I only had 3 presets and they all worked fine, no static or anything.

I'm waiting for AM guys to have mmd shorty antenna back in their stock. Says excellent radio reception, but the installation might be just a little windy.

Yeah, it's been deleted. Saw 3 of them at the local cars & coffee Saturday. Ford moved the round satellite antenna to the roof, centered at the top edge of rear window. Same place as the shark fin antenna on the BMWs.

Heh, you're overthinking it man.

Take your old antenna down to Home Depot's screw aisle. You will see a thread finder guide mounted to the shelf ever 10 or 12 feet. Check your antenna thread against that and you'll know what you need.

Then just find a good mount and epoxy the right bolt to it and you're good to go.

This.

I just ordered one (though don't blame anyone for clipping and capping. Sad truth of my life is, the UPS guy will be here before I get enough time to actually run down to Autozone.

Nah, it's ordered and on the car. And Wordy, I do tend to overthink things. Bad habit picked up after four years of engineering school. I don't want "a solution" I want "the best solution".

And epoxying a bolt to a mount wouldn't work because I would have to make sure the orientation was the same every time. I already ordered a mount that I think will look good and be strong. I had planned to go to Home Depot today to figure out what size bolt I need, but working in retail, it has been a bit hectic lately (switched majors from engineering to logistics a few semesters before graduating with BS in aerospace).

As I said, if it doesn't work right, it can always go on my mountain bike, so it's no wasted money...
