I had the exact same problem with my garage door and antenna, especially backing out! I found a Pontiac Montana (they're also on other GM vehicles) that had a short wire wrapped rubber antenna that fit. This was not off of a new model, they twist off with a quarter turn instead. I had to put a small piece of allthread(or cut off bolt) in it because the Chrysler mount took a male antenna post and the GM mount took a female antenna post. It was the same thread size. It works fine and is only about 3" long vs. the 8" that it came with.
