TRP introduces the Side Shooter Antenna Cover!
The time has come to finally release the Side Shooter antenna cover for the 3rd gen Tacoma’s. After over a dozen prototypes and several different designs, I feel like I finally have a worthwhile product to release. We tried for the absolute minimal height in the goal of having the ability of placing a rear bar on the Prinsu style roof racks. What we have achieved is a product that not only lowers the height of the antenna (substantially) but also keeps your factory am/fm reception possible.
Due to the nature of the factory design, to relocate the am/fm antenna we had to think differently. This led us down many different design languages. In the end, and to adhere to the minimalist principles, we struck upon the Side Shooter antenna cover. The asymmetrical design lends itself to a stylish look as well as allowing for a svelte form.
There is minimal “assembly required” to retain your factory antenna. There are many different “how to’s” found here on Tacoma World that teach you how to remove the factory antenna for the 3rd gen Tacoma’s. I’ll link them here when I can. The antenna cover will come supplied with everything necessary to instal the Side Shooter antenna cover.
