I bent mine on top adjusting the final height to be just a little more than the cabin height, like most people around the antenna is used as a probe to check if I can go or not.

I cut mine down to the height of the roof.

Then took the ball off the end with a vice grip.

Then drilled the hole a little bigger as the antenna gets fatter lower down.

Then glued the ball back onto the end.

Looks stock, works the same. I'm happy.

Awesome. I was afraid that if it gets cut it would be deemed useless. If you're happy, I will follow suite. Thanks!

Same thing happens to me at work. I park in a seemingly low-clearance underground garage. My antenna plays a symphony of pings as I go down the ramps. I'm always terrified my cab will hit one of those low-hanging pipes.

BTW, I just bought some 10-24 x 3/4" stainless button head bolts. Haven't put them in yet because I don't have access to my tools right now. I got some weird looks taking my antenna into Home Depot...
I don't need a stinking antenna, thats why I have my iPod
