Shorty antenna?

After putting on a new car cover I found out that the stock antenna was way too long and didn't let the car cover fit. What shorty antenna do you guys recommend and have? Thanks

I would recommend Cravenspeed one, mostly cuz it looks like it would've come this way stock... Sound quality in radio stations suffer a bit but its not terrible... U can find one of these on Amazon for like $30

Hard to say, I mostly listen to Pandora or what's on my USB drive... I keep the stock antenna in my trunk just in case I go on a long drive and and I'm driving in the sticks but I've never found the need to swap... It's all city around me so sound quality is just ok for the most part

Ive got the craven speed one and its freakin awesome. Absolutely no signal loss on radio. And it looks sick.

You just unscrew the factory one and screw it right in!

The Stubby Antenna is awesome! Very small and looks great! For me (in Portland, OR), it didn't effect the signal quality at all. HD and standard radio both sound just as good as the stock antenna.

I got this one a while back. Seems to work fine but I rarely use the radio.

I got mine off of eBay a few months back from eBay My World - antenna_x.

Love the way it looks OEM and not aftermarket. Sits flush with housing and works perfectly. This is the way they should have came, not that long sticky POS.
