Let me know if you have seen this or have any ideas. This would probably solve roof-rack problems too.
I put The Stubby Antenna from Craven Speed ($19.99) on mine for this very reason. Still seems to get good reception. With the stubby antenna I was able to use my cargo box. I've seen a blade antenna modification that cost a bit more and requires a bit more work to install. The Stubby was easy, just screwed right on.
