I had one of those stubby antennas on my Raptor, and ordered another one for my new F250 without first looking at how it's mounted on this truck.
Of course, when I got it, I quickly found out that it isn't an easy "unscrew the original, screw the new one on" type replacement.
So... I got into the Service Manual, and looked up the procedure for how to remove/replace the antenna. To make a long story short... It appears it can be done, but involves something like 16 steps, and the removal of numerous panels of the truck to get to it.
As such, I haven't installed mine... at least, not yet. I just ant see going thru all that hassle just for a purely cosmetic change. Maybe one day when I'm tinkering around with something else, and have those panels off, I'll install it. But not now.
