Just removed my antenna. I still get good radio reception, so I will probably leave it out. Still have to get a bolt to go in the hole.

Yeah, after reading this thread, I thought I would try it. Unscrewed the antenna, and I could still get all of the stations in my city. Plus I didn't really like the 3 foot antenna sticking up over the cab.

it should be fine. the hole will get crud and crap in it though so it might be harder to ever put it back
