Spent a Few Minutes With the Copperhead Today

Had an hour to kill this afternoon so I replaced the stock antenna with a cool little stubby from AMI Styling (US). It is 3", billet and black powder-coat.





I also removed the dealer badging from the tailgate and rear windows. The truck looks much cleaner now.



Now to get my hands on some fishing line and complete the debadging process.

I'm curious what kind of reception you'll get with that stubby antenna. I had a flexible rubber one a little longer then that and it broke, but it didn't work that well anyway.

I seldom listen to the radio (many other options these days) and the Stubby Antenna was needed so the Truck cover could be installed and removed without having to deal with a stock antenna. Good move.

I guess I'm old school and like to listen to the radio sometimes. Most of the time, although, I listen to music on my ipod. You would think by now the auto industry would hide the antenna somewhere out of sight, and I'm not talking about in the windshield.

Radio? is that the thing in the dash that people talk out of?

Looks good, I've been on the fence about debadging my 14, have of the 1500 emblems are just about falling off anyway.

I like conservative talk radio which is mostly on AM and the stubby does pretty good on that...mostly I like the sound of a good Hemi exhaust .

I do not listen to a lot of radio myself (although I got 1 year of Sirius XM as part of my purchase). I like the appearance of the stubby and because I live in a fairly urban area, reception seems just fine. As an added bonus, this one doesn't bang and clang on every parking garage I enter.

Had a productive afternoon. I got my custom blind spot mirrors put on.





Then I gave the interior a quick detail and put in my new Husky X-Act Contour Floor Liners. They look great and provide awesome coverage.









There was only one downside to the day. I removed the OEM film from my Uconnect panel and promptly f***ed up installation of my aftermarket screen protector.

Now to get another one on the way. Argh!
