Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product fit well, even though in my application the inner fender well requires removal to install. Product worked well for a few days then stopped fucntioning (and remained in the extended possition). Crutchfield immediatly put thru a replacment order. Replacement is functioning properly so far.

Pros: Fit well. Crutchfield customer service and immediate replacement of defective part was great.

Cons: Original item had a defect. Unfortunatly R&R required removal of inner fender well a second time.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This antenna failed one week after it was installed. Crutchfield was good about sending a replacement. It too failed in one week. Waiting for a refund.

Pros:

Cons: When I was shopping for this product, I believed it to be manufactured in the USA. Its made in China.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This replaced a failed after market power antenna. It seems to be better quality than the one it replaced and is quieter and smoother raising and lowering. It could stand to be a little taller. The zero degree fixed bezel was cracked and not useable. I called the manufacturer and they said they would send a replacement out immediately. It has been three weeks and I am still waiting for it to show up.

Pros: Works great

Cons: Would like it to be a little taller. Zero degree fixed angle base was cracked and unuseable..

Exactly what I was looking for

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this on my 1990 GMC K2500, it fits. Installed where the stock antenna goes but you will need to modify a few parts to make it all work. You will want to reused the stock antenna-fender bezel as the kits ones (there are several) do not have enough slope to merge with the stock fender curve. The stock bezel will needed to sanded (I used my Dremel) on oppasite sides to make the slightly flat. This is done so the bezel can fit inside the antennas mounting plate, the part under the fender that holds it vertical. The GMC has a plastic filler plug on the inside of the fender that you will need to remove (it just snaps out), in addition to removing the coolant resevoir (two bolts). You will also be reopmoving the inner fender or wheel well, lots of bolts but straight forward.

Pros: Just what I wanted with very helpful product support from the company (i wanted to bench test it before finishing the install)

Cons: Not tall enough! I live in the boonies If it were 12" longer my radio reception would be even better.

Broke after first rain

Written by: Anonymous from Plano, Texas on June 9, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this antenna to replace a defective antenna in a 2000 4Runner. The antenna fit well. The fit was a major concern as the location of the hole for the antenna. I installed the antenna myself on a Sunday. (I installed car audio as a job in college) On Friday the Antenna stopped working. It just happened to rain at the same time. Can't say what the root of the failure is yet.

Pros: Fit well

Cons: Slow raise and lower Broken, does not work.
