Very entertaining write up, and i belive the push pin post was great too. So what about painting that whole black thing the same color as your trucks now? That would look good i bet!

Well I had to dig this old thread up to add my attempt.
So I went to HD and got this,



I also got a bolt 10x24x1 and screwed the bolt through the crown cap and this was the result.

Just a thought but if you we're to just install the screw then plasti dip the hole thing. I'm going to do this once I have a way to listen to something other than the radio in my 01.

How long did it take to unscrew your antenna? Mine just keeps spinning and spinning.

You will get really poor radio signal if you do this mod. I took mine off and installed a small antenna which still receives poop signal so I might change it.
