Hi everybody. New Escape owner and new to the boards. Just bought a 2010 Escape XLT 4WD Sterling Grey as a Family/Recreation Vehicle.

Haven't seen anyone talk about doing the shorty antenna themselves on here.(Did a search)
A few years back I had a Mustang and did it myself. Very easy, cheap(free if you have the materials already) and you can make it any size you want. I'm not responsible for damage to anything on your vehicle or radio reception issues.

All you need is a nail puller, hacksaw or good wire cutters, strong adhesive glue and some high gloss black spray paint. Takes about 10 minutes to do.
Here's a link for the how-to.

Good find, dont want to cut too much then you lose reception, unless you added an inductor to the antenna circuit, then you could cut as much as you want.
