    So I went with the Stubby Jr. to get as little antenna as possible. The look isn't for everyone but I like it plus it actually picks up signal really well. Only took me 8 years to swap out the OEM. haha

    I’m glad we’ve finally reached the place as a society where we can be proud to admit we have a short one. Cheers!

    I like my OEM antenna. It stabs me in the eye everytime I go to wipe down my windshield :mad:

    Mostly aesthetic so far: Rydonair 13" Radio Antenna, TAC Modular Bull Bar (Predator Mesh Version), CoverKing Neosupreme Seat Covers (Black/Charcoal), Husky X-Act Contour Floor Mats (Front & Rear), K&N Premium Cabin Air Filter (Washable), McGard Truck Tailgate Lock, LASFIT 921 LED Bulbs (Cargo Light/High Mount Stop/3rd Brake Light Combo), TRD PRO Gear Shift Knob Replacement (Matte Black/Red Stitching), LED License Plate Light Housing & Bulbs, JKCover Center Console Organizer Tray, JDMCAR Cup Holder & Door Pocket Rubber Inserts Kit (Black/Gray Trim), AUXITO SWITCHBACK Fog LED Bulbs (H11 H16 H8, 3000K/6000K), iBrightstar 7440 Backup/Reverse LED Bulbs, XPEL Black Universal Door Sill Guard (60" x 2.75") Paint Protection Film Kit, Auxbeam 20 Inch 420W LED Light Bar (Dual Color, Amber/White, 6 Modes),
    I couldn't bring myself to buy one as small as the STUBBY one but I do love the SHORTER (13") antenna I went with over the stock. Great reception on AM/FM bands but I live in Dallas so plenty of signal strength everywhere. I will say that mine has held up pretty good considering I take it through the car wash every week. Added bonus is NOT getting stabbed in the eye every time I go to wipe down my windshield!!!

    Mine isn't that stubby but that's one of the first things I did when I got my Tundra last December.

    Guess you don't like listening to the radio :monocle: Me either, but still wouldn't get a stubby.

    Oh god this made me laugh! I have the Ronin bullet antenna. I don’t listen to much of the radio at all so it doesn’t bother me. I still have the OEM antenna and all my atom parts stored in the garage.

    I listen to MY music which isn't played on radio. If I listen to radio like its 1999 its mostly local sports talk and a stubby picks it up just fine. To each his/her own I guess. :amen:

    I need my OEM antenna for the underground parking lots I have to park in when I go to Dallas.
    It is about an inch taller than the 2.5" lifted truck..
    So when something looks low, I just creep under it until the antenna clears..

    My antenna mount broke a few weeks ago.
    I miss having the antenna on there..
    I have the parts to fix it, I just need to find the time.
