Justin: At right around 20 bucks, the MMD Shorty Antenna here might just be one of the best bang for your buck mods available for that 2010 through 2014 Mustang at home. Now, when installed, the 5-inch black rubberized antenna will reduce the size of your stocker by nearly 9 inches, and the best part is without having a dramatically negative impact to your radio reception.Your installation here, guys, is going to be extremely straightforward. So expect a simple one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, no more than a few minutes to complete from start to finish, as we'll show you later in the video. Now, again, well there really isn't a ton to talk about here, both literally and figuratively, so what do you say we just cut right to the chase?Now, the factory antenna on your S197, at least the 2010 through 2014 that is, is gonna be 14 inches in length. And while that still is much shorter compared to the earlier S197s, it's still pretty lengthy overall. Now, moving to a shorter option, such as MMD's 5-incher here, will not only help clean up the appearance of your ride, but will also make things like car washes and car covers a bit easier to deal with as well. Now, your construction is going to be a combination of that steel core which is gonna help your radio reception, of course, but wrapped in the weather-resistant textured black, kind of, rubberized material here, which still does have some play to it. It still is pretty pliable. So if you do happen to snag it at a car wash or something like that, you're not gonna have to worry about this thing, kind of, snapping in half on you.But the biggest question I get, no doubt, is, "Will this thing kill my radio reception?" And honestly, guys, it really depends on where you live, right? If you live in close proximity to your local stations already, you get great reception to begin with, well, then chances are that's really not gonna change your EMMD option installed. However, if you live out in the countryside and you have problems getting decent reception with that factory antenna, well, guess what, adding something shorter is certainly not going to make things better. But if you really wanna hear from the S197 owners out there who have installed this product on their ride, I always encourage you guys to read up on the customer reviews with this product as it's a great way to get some real world feedback from fellow Mustang owners. And hey, while you're there, feel free to check out some of the customers' submitted images as well to see how this thing works once installed.But now we wanna show you how easy it would be to get the MMD antenna in place. Your stud's already there for you. There's no need for any extras when going to install this thing, so very, very simple stuff. And to prove that again to you, guys, here's that detailed walk-through we promised you earlier.Man: All right. So the first step of this install is gonna be to remove the factory antenna that comes with the vehicle. You don't need any tools for this. You can unscrew it with your hands. Now that that's out of the way, you can install your new antenna, once again, with no tools.And that's gonna wrap up this review and install of the MMD 5-Inch Antenna, fitting your 2010 to '14 Mustangs. Thanks for watching. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

Very good, well built, reception is great! It is super easy to install and took exactly one minute. The old one just screws off and this one screws back on. Overall great and looks much better than stock.Helpful (0)

My stock antenna was a little worn and let’s face it, that whippy looking thing was lame!!! The “shorty” definitely looks better, but reception was not as good. Hence the 4 stars not 5. Listen to the 5 liter sound system under your hood...Helpful (0)

Great replacement for my damaged original antennae. It took only seconds to install.Helpful (0)
how is the radio reception on 5in vs the stock? thanks
With the MMD 5 in. Short Antenna if you live in an area with a strong radio reception, there's no difference in the quality of the radio reception. If you are in an area with a poor radio signal, the radio reception may be affected.
I see this is made for a 10-14 and others have asked if this fits a 15 very and the answer is no. Is there a reason why it will not fit? Has anyone actually tried it? I can unscrew my antenna so I would assume the new one would screw right in. Thanks for the help!
This will not fit 15+ models due to the differences in physical layout of the antenna port.
Just got mine in the mail.. installed it and it wont tighten.. Tried the old 1 and it seats fine. The new 1 just spins. The stud on the new 1 seems tight. but it has to be spinning in the plastic. Any ideas? thanks..Thought about putting a lil dab of blu loc-tite??????? thanks
The install should be simply unscrewing your old antenna and screwing in this new one here. If you could please reach out directly to our customer service department as we would be glad to help troubleshoot this further with you here! Please do so by either reaching out to our live chat support team or by giving us a call at 1-877-887-1105.
I feel ridiculous but I can't seem to remove my factory antenna...videos make it seem like you just unscrew (counterclockwise) and the the old one comes out. Not in my case! The thing just spins and won't come out...I don't want to damage anything...is there a special trick or am I missing something?
Try gently lifting/pulling upwards when unscrewing. The retaining threading may be loose and just have the antenna spinning when you are attempting removal.
I see you carry the short antennas. In Crome and black l was wondering if you do them in the color of the car? I have a 2011 Kona blue
Unfortunately, we don't offer these antennas pre-painted.
This MMD 5 in. Short Antenna is made for the 10-14 Mustangs.
In the future we may carry a shorty antenna such as the MMD 5 in. Short Antenna for the 15-17 mustang, but as of right now we do not.
Unfortunately, this is only made for 2010-14 Mustangs and will not work for the 2015-17 Mustangs.
For the base screw you'd have to just paint it while it on the car, just wrap around it to protect the cars actual paint. As for the antenna my guess is yes though I don't know how good it would look depending on the color you choose.
Yes! It sits about half way up my truck lid when open. It should clear the lip with no problem.
