Ugly Antenna

I do not like the stock radio antenna (unbelievably that ford are still using these antennas) on my 2014-gt , what do you guys have done with yours, please show pictures and provide recommendation of what to buy to replace Ugly Antenna

My stock antenna sucks as far as reception goes so how is the shorty with reception?

Or just cut your stock one and round the top back off.

DIY Shorty antenna, cut with wire cutters where it goes from fat to skinny, then cap off with a 7/32 vacuum cap from autozone. Costs $2 and takes 30 seconds. No change in radio reception.

That's a decent amount of body work to just get rid of an antenna

Side note - my antennae proved really fragile. I threw my truck's car cover over it and the weight broke it. New one $20 at the dealer - not surprised they had a bunch in stock.

Well if you break another one I have a stock one I could sell you for $12.99. I was taken off the car 3 days after I bought it!

I also cut my stock one down. Looks great and I haven't noticed any change in reception.
