Default Hidden AM FM Antenna

Does anyone know of a Hidden AM FM antenna that works good?

In my little bit of research I'm getting 50/50 reviews good & bad.

To my knowledge, the only decent hidden antenna are the ones built into the front or rear windshield. But I've never seen one for our trucks.

Closest thing you could probably get would be a stubby antenna.

I have a Stubby but I get no AM FM reception so I use XM/Sirius.

I'm changing out the HU to a DDX9902S and would like to enable FM.

Wow... that's extra stubby! I was thinking of getting one more in the 3-6 inch range.

Too bad Ford hasn't gone the way of other manufacturers and started using the shark-fin style roof top antennas.
