Anyone tried these? Has mixed reviews online. Like the looks but wondering about performance. Thanks

My cousin installed one on his ram, he has 1/5 the signal strength that he used to, almost has to use Sirius XM everywhere outside of town now. Highly discourage getting one.

I really want one of these, I have been on the fence about ordering one for a few years. I don't want to lose reception. I use pandora cds or sirius 99 percent of the time. But the few times to goto bfe I have no cell service and plan to cancel sirius soon, I don't want to not be able to use radio.

if you are worried about signal strength then dont get it. keep sirius and work out a deal when you call to cancle.. they always have a one time deal and i think can be as cheap as 6-9 buxks a month.
