Thumbs up custom firestick ll antenna

These are very nice, custom made by a friend over on the FJ forums. He does a very nice job. I love this antenna, it has a much more stout appearance and the signal strength is great! I hated the flimsy factory antenna. He modifies the firestick ll to for Toyota and adds a heavy duty spring. I wanted a stout antenna that wasn't stubby..this fits the bill perfect!

Is it safe? "It's better than safe, its Deathproof!"

The antenna is about 1.5- 2" shorter than the stock one..I think its perfect. I really like the look and the performance of it. Thanks for the compliments.
