Antenna broke off on F250

Well, the jerks at the car wash did not remove my radio antenna and it got snapped off. The little black base is all that's left. The threads for the mast are missing. It appears that I will have to replace the whole assembly. The truck is a 2002 F250. It appears that it might be hard to get to. Any here have any experience replacing a complete antenna system?

I just tried to unscrew the antenna before going through the car wash and it snapped off. I'm in the same situation....

Do I dare admit that I still listen to AM radio?
I have XM also if that helps make me look less like a cave man.

$19.99 buys one of those new short flexible rubber ones at most auto parts store.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt
