Default Satallite Radio???

Question....

I have a stock 2009 radio with Satallite Radio. I want to keep the Satallite radio but I cant stand the Stock head unit, but I want to use the antenna (if that is how you spell it) that came with the truck. Does anybody know how I can use the antenna with an aftermarket radio. I looked behind the dash and the satallite radio has a seperate wiring harness, and the antenna runs into the stock reciever for the satallite. Basically I don't want to have to run a new antenna... I know I will have to get a new reciever.

Hey STL, I finally got the antenna unplugged and it appears in the picture that is a harness of some type, but that yellow cap can be removed and the antenna wire is somewhat like the pic you posted above. Looks like a small coaxiel cable. I couldnt get my camera to focus on it close up so no pics but I believe I will be ablt to use the antenna with any setup....

Cool deal

You plan to get a radio with sat. radio built in?

If you dont and you get a dash unit i recommend the Delphi XpressRC

best one out there 1 year ago you can pause and rewind radio and store your fav. artist and songs. When they come on it beeps telling you what channel

Also if you get a dash unit I can show u how to hard wire it so you don't have a crap ton of wires every where

Im not sure what I want yet. I was figurin on a built in system cause thats all I have ever had, really never thought of a dash unit. Ill have to look into it. Opinion?
