Today I decided to shave my radio antenna from my truck. This was an idea I had gotten from another truck forum site. Before: After: Step 1: Remove the black plastic trim piece from around your antenna. It is held on with three clips and is easily removed. Step 2: Unscrew your antenna from the mounted piece. You can spin your antenna to remove it from the mounted post. If you can't spin it with your hands, there are flat spots towards the bottom of the mast you can grab with pliers to loosen. Step 3: Remove the antenna mount. There are three bolts holding the antenna mount in place. I was able to remove them with a 9/32" socket, but am unsure if there is a metric size that will work for these bolts. Step 4: Reattach the mast to the antenna base. Screw the antenna base to a "L" bracket and tilt it down pointing under the hood. Screw in your antenna so it is under the hood pointing towards the front of the truck. Now attach the other side of the "L" bracket to where the antenna was originally mounted. Step 5: Replace plastic trim and add zip tie to keep antenna from rattling under your hood. You now have a shaved antenna. You are left with a hole where the antenna came through on the black plastic trim piece, but it was there before so it isn't anything noticeable. Also, you can order a replacement trim piece from a Cadillac Escalade that will not have the hole for about $14. I placed a piece of black tape over the hole for the time being. Trim piece with black tape- Also, the radio reception seems to be just as good as with the antenna standing up, but will let you know for sure as I get out some more.
