Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is Ford thinking

putting a 2-1/2 foot radio antenna on the fender?? The last 4 new vehicles we've bought new going back to somewhere around 2010 did not have them. I thought these things rode off into the sunset long ago. And the AM/FM reception was just fine.

I kind of like the antenna. I've always used them on my trucks as sort of "height gauges" when entering parking garages. Depending on where it hits on the antenna, I know that the truck will make it or if it won't.

I dislike the factory antenna. I replaced mine with this one --> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The reason for my dislike of the factory antenna, is although as @Billjc states as using it as a sort of "height gauge", I end up snapping these OEM antennas clean off when off-road fishing in NW Ontario when I am trucking through tight spaces with tree branches almost rubbing the roof of the truck as I drive down the off-road trails to the remote lakes.
