I had a stainless polished fancy one for a long long time, reception was fine it was a 12". Only thing I did not like was it didnt bend at all so offroading sucked if you hit a branch I was worried about snapping it off.

I took the stock antenna and cut it level with the cab, so it stops hitting my garage door. I run that set up now with no issues or change in reception.

i shortened mine about 4-5 inches when i made it into an arrow. no loss of reception. its still taller then my cab but i want it like that so i can find it easier in parking lots lol

my friend had one of those shorty ones on his car and lost all reception.
