I do the 6 months, because it's cheaper at the time. I emailed the guy on the shocks and he said they should ship next week as he is backed up on orders. I also called ORO and they told me my replacement lights should ship next week as well. I am really looking forward to the Bilsteins.

So how is the stubby antenna? After watching the videos of when I went wheeling last week I think I need a stubby 'cause the stocker is whapping my windshield lights. Is the reception okay? Can you post up a pic from 10-15ft. back on the passenger side so I can get a full view of it?

The antenna is great. I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I have not noticed a difference in the radio. It seems the same to me. When I first installed it, it was hard for the camera to pick it up, as it almost blended in.

That's a nice little mod. I get the antenna hitting my windshield lights too but it's not the end of the world. Good cheap fix though.

Mine would always bang around and get caught in the garage door when pulling in, not any more.

Do we have the same antenna screw slot? I'd love to take it off your hands. Please consider me first in line and I'll find out if they're interchangeable .
