    Your truck is one of my favorite NBS trucks on the site! Thanks for this write up. Definitely a weekend project for me.

    FYI, an open end 10MM wrench will get that antenna off.

    Just finished doing this to my truck. Not a whole lot of room to work in there, so if you're impatient like myself, just remain calm and try not to drop your 10MM socket down in between the fender and the cab like I did, lol. Luckily it's a Kobalt, so I just gotta pay shipping and I get a freebie.

    Ouch. I'm retentive enough to fish that out of there to prevent rattling, even with a freebie coming. On the brighter side, isn't it amazing how subtle but substantial an improvement this simple modification makes?
