Well after a couple months of use, I am going back to the stock antenna. The Metra antenna works alright but really suffers in difficult areas of canyons and hills. Even semi's parked next to me at a stoplight could block some signals.

Also anyone is the passenger seat asks me,"what is that?"

Now that you have had your fin in for awhile Z66Modder how is the reception?

I find myself actually using FM quite a bit and AM to check traffic occasionally. So for me an aftermarket antenna needs to be greater or equal to the stock antenna reception. For now I'm going back to the stock antenna since there does not seem to be a solution that is 100% perfect. But man do I like the look without the damn stock antenna.

Have not tried AM yet. FM is been about the same as the factory, which around Tacoma is not always good with the hills and such. The weather has a big impact too. I did replace the coax that came with it with a good shielded one. I am satisfied with what results I have and will not be going back to factory mast.

I like the look but I want to keep the FM reception as good as I can
