This vehicle is equipped with a fixed mast radio antenna mounted on the right front fender. The antenna cable has two parts. The antenna lead-in cable is included as part of the antenna base. The upper cable connects the radio to the lead-in cable. The two cables join in the RH foot well area, behind the lower A-pillar trim.
