Yeah. Just remove the antenna and put a fin on. It sticks on.
The bee stinger antenna on your roof is for a car phone not radio. So it doesn't do anythinf

just so you know the "bee stinger" antenna has a hole in the roof while the "shark fin" doen't. so if you do for some reason put a "shark fin" on in it's place it will sit forward and the cable will show. now if you just want to replace it for looks there are hollow ones that just stick on.

as someone said it's not for the radio. that antenna is in your back window grid.

Where's the best place to get a shark fin that matches the OEM ones? I want to mount a magnetic Sirius Antenna on my roof and hide it under a faux shark fin.
