OK, here's my stupidity story. The wife and I were out runnung around town today when we decided to get the truck washed in an automatic car wash. The wife had a red white and blue bow on the antenna. So we start going into the car wash not really thinking much of the bow. Well, the spinning wheels get close to the truck and WHAM. The spinner snagged the bow and YANKED the radio antenna out of the fender. Luckilly the attendant was paying attention as I sat there open mouthed watching the antenna smack the side of the Bronco. No real damage other than the cowel pannel, but I do need a good sorce for the part. Anny sugestions out there?

I know, pretty stupid, but sometimes it's the best way to learn. Thanks.

I have to agree. Even the "good" aftermarket Ford truck suppliers don't seem to carry a replacement.

All the aftermarket stuff I've handled is junk. You really see it when you work with it.

If you are talking about the cowl panel between the hood & windshield, try your local late model salvage yard. it is a simple bolt on deal with phillips head screws. It will most likely already be off, as you have to remove it to properly remove the wiper motor, & the wiper motors on the Ford trucks sell Quickly..
