Default shorty antenna

ive seen some gm vehicles with a short antenna mast. the one on my 01 xtreme is so long and funny looking. does anyone know of another antenna that will screw onto the antenna base that is not so long?

I bought mine off Ebay many months ago. It lost some reception but 99.9% of the time I listen to XM anyway so it didn't matter. I just got tired of looking at that long wire on my fender.

Something like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/82-02-Chevro...7b1269&vxp=mtr

You can get ones that are mounted on the interior of the vehicle from most part stores. They looks like little bars with extensions on each side

Here is what one looks like

On the roof or in the hole on the fender?

I cannot say this for certain but from the tiny picture on ebay I believe it is going to be sticking out crooked. If you look at the bottom it doesn't have an angle on it, so if it attaches it will stick out crooked unless it is bendable. Also just from the pictures you cannot tell what thread style the screw on bottom is so you may get it to find out that it wont even screw onto your current spot.

I have one on my blazer from an Xtreme Blazer and it's a little short antennea. I bought it on ebay years ago cause i couldn't stand the huge thing that was there before lol. I don't even listen to the radio anyways, i have a usb jack that i use flash drives and my ipod in.

I never listen to the radio so when I did they body work on my truck I welded up the hole for the antenna.

But the one you posted doesn't look like it would fit.

On mine I just cut it off like 6 inches where it come up from the fender and put a rubber cap on top so the wire wouldn't come undone, I maybe lost 10 or 15% reception, I never normally travel far enough to actually notice a difference. I listen to the bigger radio stations and they seem to come in just fine.
