I have a built in "fixed" stock antenna. I'm only getting a few stations, so i obviously need to adjust it. Anyone have an idea where this antenna is located? How do i adjust it?

The stock "fixed" antenna is a mast near the base of the windshield on the passenger side. If you don't see one there, someone has enter stolen it or the dealer forgot to install it.

Here's mine with an aftermarket 9" billet antenna

Unless I screwed up the math, a 1/4 wave antenna tuned at 98MHz (about the halfway point on the FM dial) would be about 28.6" long
