New antenna

Just got a new 8" antenna to replace the monster of the antenna that came stock. How do I get the old one off and the new one on? Do they just unscrew/screw on or are there wires involved under there? Thanks

yup just unscrew the old one and screw the new one on. make sure to wrap something around the new one so the wrench doesnt dig into the plastic coating.

Cool, thanks guys. That sucks that it deplets the reception of the radio though.

I havent noticed any loss. I dont travel far from the suburbs of chicago anyway, reception is fine. If I do go far, then obviously thats why we have cd/mp3 players :thumbsup
