I've read the posts, but I'm still a little vague, so can anyone provide & suggest modifications and links to them that are proven. Want to know before buying a cover (always on a budget!)
Just the facts... thanks ;) ...

The facts are that the truckexpression 6" antenna works and it looks good, the smaller 2.55" antenna reception is B- but it looks pretty good, if the stations are strong on your area the reception is an A but if you stray then it becomes a C maybe a D.
All the information as you said and pictures are under My antenna Modifications Thread.
prices are $21.00 for the 6" antenna and $9.00 for the 2.55" antenna plus shipping.

Latin Venom, I ordered the 6" antenna right after you posted their address on the Forum. Haven't heard anything from them yet. How long did it take to get yours after it was ordered? Do you have a number where I can check on my order? Thanks

Could someone please post a couple pictures of what it looks like with the antenna modification. I'm really curious to see how different it looks.

So it just screws into Solstice mount, that's it?

I have 2 from antennax.com. I got the 13" eurostyle, and a 15" one that looks almost identical to stock antenna, only shorter. They both look good, and pics should be up on the website soon. Just hit the "contact us" button and tell John what you want. He'll hook you up. I'd post up some pics, but haven't hit enough posts yet.

Oh yeah, they both just screwed right in

Campbell, use putfile.com to post pics (or any picture storage place).

Don't think it's your post count, think regular members can't post into threads. Can post into gallery but that's having issues last few days.

Lepiane, Those are the same type as the ones I found at Truckexpressions, it looks like their price is $3 dollars less.

Here is the number to TruckExpressions 866.444.7711 and the link to the Web site, there is also a link to track your order.

I do not want to derail this thread but most of the pictures of the antennas are on the forum thread entitled
My antenna modifications and here is the link to that thread:

Here are my pictures, the last one is from the 2.55" antenna from this other site,:

I ordered and received the 6" antenna and it looks great. It works fine around town but in mountain touring I can tell the difference. I think I would have probably been happier with a new 12" instead. I can always swap back to stock for longer runs but I think the 12" might have been a better compromise.

Any comments from others who have made the purchase? :(
