      Video Review & Installation

      Justin: The RedRock 6.5-inch rubber antenna that we have here today will be a great option for the '97 and newer F-150 owners, looking to switch out that factory ski pole length antenna, and would prefer to go with something that has a little bit more flex, as opposed to something that's gonna be a lot more rigid like a Billet Shorty antenna. Now the steel spring core option here from RedRock will offer, again, that flexibility, along with a super-easy install and that 6.5-inch length, all for right around the $30 to $40 price point.All right, guys. So, short and sweet, the factory antenna is good for checking heights of parking garages and picking up just about every damn radio station in your state. But that's pretty much it, right? It looks goofy. I feel like it's way too tall for the truck. And let's face it, it can get easily damaged if you go through tight trails, possibly catch it on an obstacle off-road, or take your truck through the occasional automatic car wash.Now, the 6.5-inch option here from RedRock, on the other hand, at least according to our customer reviews, is still solid enough to maintain decent radio reception on most of your terrestrial radio stations, including some HD stuff, but will make a massive improvement in regards to your appearance. And let's be perfectly clear, guys. If you're more interested in picking up radio stations, chances are you're gonna wanna stick with something like the Stalker. But if you're more interested in picking up some better appearance, well, then this is gonna be the option for you.Now, actually, full disclosure. I have something very similar on my truck, and for the very small amount of time I do spend listening to the radio, maybe some sports talk radio. I haven't really noticed a huge drop-off in performance or reception whatsoever. Now, keep in mind, I do live kinda near a large city. So, therefore, station signal strength is pretty strong. However, if you live out in the country or out in the sticks, well, you might notice some decreased performance in reception. But moving into construction, and, again, the big story here with this option from RedRock is that rubberized flexible build, which is in stark contrast to other Shorty antennas here on the site that might utilize some sort of rigid aluminum build instead.Now, this option, again, will utilize that spring steel core we mentioned earlier, which is then given that durable rubberized coating. And, again, that is gonna be both scratch and UV resistant. So it shouldn't fade on you over time. Now, this construction is going to allow, again, for this thing to have a little bit of flex off-road, which, as the name implies, certainly gonna be better than those more rigid billet steel options or aluminum options that will likely basically just snap at the base in the event it gets snagged on an obstacle, or if you take it through a car wash. Now shifting gears, let's talk about installation. And, honestly, guys couldn't get any easier here.Now, granted, you might need a wrench to loosen up that Stalker, but after that, you're just simply gonna locate the correct thread adapter in the package. You have a few to choose from. Screw that into your new antenna. And at that point, you can screw your new antenna onto your truck. Now, because this is gonna be very easy, guys, you're in for a very soft one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, maybe five minutes of your time to knock this one out from start to finish. Now, to give you a better idea of just how things will go down on your truck at home, feel free to check out this detailed walk-through from an AT customer now.Man: So, today, we're gonna take off this long antenna that everybody hates, and we're gonna install this stubby antenna that I purchased from AmericanTrucks. So, again, to take off your old antenna, just a 3S wrench. Some people use a crescent wrench. Once you get so far up, you could probably spin it off by hand.Now, make sure you grab the right piece. For me, it's going to be this one. And you put the more coarse threads down and the fine threads go into the antenna. And they also give you spacers in this kit, which we are going to use this little one, just so that most of the truck [inaudible 00:03:55] so you get it pretty tight. Did another couple of turns. Good snug. There it is.Justin: All right, guys. So, if you are looking to really clean up the appearance of your F-150 without completely sacrificing your radio reception, be sure to check out this RedRock 6.5-inch off-road antenna right here at
