Great post, this should be very helpfull now that i just got my first truck. Has anyone also had trouble getting the antena through the little straw?.. i had such a hard time, than i remembered that i had lotion in my glove box, that totaly did the trick. Just rub some on the antena and stick it through. It was kind of difficult tho considering that my buddy's were next to me cracking jokes about it the whole time.
