Have a broken antenna? You're in the right place. Did your radio reception (particularly on the AM band) go bad all of a sudden? Your antenna may be the culprit.

The mast on this factory-replacement model is detachable, allowing you to remove it if you need to. Warranty: 30 days.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

1995 Ford F Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Although a little difficult to thread the antenna cable through the firewall of my '95 F150 (I had to remove the original antenna cable and it was a bear) the antenna works for me. The antenna is not an OEM product, so you have to realize that. I have no complaints on its function. People who think that this antenna is a direct replacement are wrong! They should have done a bit more research and they would realize that. My antenna sits straight as an arrow. If you want a direct replacement of the mast only, then go to your makes dealer and pay the price!! 'Course you also might find one at your local junk yard.

Pros: Works for me, better than original antenna.

Cons: Difficult to thread through firewall.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed an antenna when somebody stole mine by simply unscrewing it from the base. I talked to a rep who thought that this would be a direct replacement and could screw into the base. It doesn't. This antenna requires access inside the quarter panel.

I found out later that although Ford has been using this antenna design for almost 15 years, no one makes an aftermarket replacement that can screw into the existing base if one's antenna has been stolen/broken. The only option is to buy it from the dealer for about $35. Buying from the dealer was cheaper for me in that it only took a few seconds to screw in instead of opening up the truck.

Crutchfield service was fantastic, however. The item is so cheap that it didn't make sense to pay return costs that would nearly equal the credit. So they simply refunded my money. :) Thanks Crutchfield!

Pros: Customer Support. I realize that has little to do with the actual product, but since I can't use the product, it's the only thing I can say.

Cons: If you just need a screw in replacement, go to the dealer. As of 12/11, they were the only place one can purchase a direct replacement.

Don't waste your time or money on it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nearly impossible to get on straight. When tightening it would try to tilt out away from the fender, and while holding it straight with my thumb while tightening, the mast snapped right off.
