Wing Top Protectors with Antenna hole?

Does anyone know where I can purchase wing top protectors with the antenna hole already cut in it? I purchased a black pair from Rovers North and they did not have the antenna cut in. I'm handy, but don't want to have to cut a hole in the wing top protector. Do the OEM LR have them? Thanks

Just remove the antenna. Its not needed anyway. Removed mine and still have good enough fm reception.

Thumbs up

I put a set on my truck a couple of weeks ago and drilling the hole was no problem. I marked the center of the hole by putting some pigment on the tip of the antenna and placing the wingtop in position. Then I drilled a 1/4 inch hole all the way through. I then used a hole saw and drilled from both sides until I cut through. It looks great!

why couldnt you just take out the antenna and mark the middle of the whole then ?, then drill the whole on the wing tops.

I have the same delema to deal with myself. I just havent tried to do the project yet.

Really how hard can it be to take out the antenna?

Less work to box the stuff back up and return it, hop on the phone and order what he wants.

It's crazy how he already said he doesn't want to bother with drilling it and people choose to ignore that...

its not a matter of ignoring what he wants, its offering him up another option. isnt that the beauty of this board? people offering up an option someone may not have though of.

Not to mention a huge cost savings to that individual,by not buying overpriced oem stuff.

Hey Jay, you're absolutely correct on both points!

From his original post though, he already knows drilling is an option. As soon as he finds the cost with an antenna hole already drilled out, he then can decide what route he wants to go.

It's all good!

Seems like I recall Rovers Down South (www.roversdownsouth.com) had a pretty good price on the "holed" version......check with them, and see how their price compares.
