I feel the same way. I am debating on either shaving mine when we do body work and paint or going with an electric antenna. I am sure that the 4 Runners, Highlanders or Landcruisers come with electric antennas, when we were waiting for our truck, I glanced at the price tag for a 2001 Landcruiser it read clearly $54,000.00 all leather interior, for that much they had better give you an electric antenna, and I am sure they would work just fine with our trucks.
Hope this helps,

SLAMDTACO-thanks to your tip...i shortened my antenna today. its now a little bit lower than my cab. looks a lot better. the reception is fine...actually...its a bit clearer than it was before. *lol* maybe it's just me. =)
