    Re: Roof mast antenna

    Yor vehicle is not over 7' high so why do you need a shorter antenna? Garage doors are 7' but if your door isnt all the way open you need to adjust the opener. You cannot cut the antenna off its not just a piece of solid antenna. Your XM,Onstar FM will be dead.

    bayshore5, I also believe that the stock antenna is too long, especially for going through a car wash. Accordingly, I have ordered a Cravenspeed stubby antenna for the Srx from Amazon ($28.99 with free shipping for Amazon Prime members). I will report back after I receive and test it out.

    Real guys dont do the auto car wash and if the wash is below 7' they should pay for any SUV thats damaged.

    Re: Roof mast antenna

    I am not being destructive i am stating a FACT. All vehicles under 8500GVW are under 7' from the factory. If the OP has larger tire & wheel combination the vehicle is over the limit. Home garage doors are normal 7' so the vehicle will pass. Car washes are just that and you need to complain about the low clearance.

    Received the CravenSpeed stubby antenna today; it works well, and looks good! It will get a long distance test when we do the next road trip.

    Re: Roof mast antenna

    Well..., you could bend the antenna, starting 3" from the top, so that those 3" are parallel to the ground. If you don't like the way that looks, then, buy a shorter antenna...

    We took a trip for a few hundred miles, and the CravenSpeed stubby antenna worked great; couldn't be happier!

    After reading on this forum about the Cravenspeed Stubby antenna, I ordered one from Amazon, installed it yesterday and am very pleased with the performance and the appearance.

    Got a link? The one on amazon has a bad review, which one did you order?

    Kanundrum, I ordered mine from Amazon and it fits perfectly and works great! I bought mine before that one Amazon review was written; perhaps the reviewer ordered the wrong item(?). It was simple to install, and I prefer the look to that of the shark fin.
