Shorty Antenna: What Did You Use?

I hate the cell phone tower lookin antenna sticking out the back of my car. what did you guys used as a shorty? links to product would be nice.

I am looking at this: Ptuning.com - Item Description

I figure this will be a cheap and easy winter mod. My dad's garage doesnt have heat yet

id use that one, or do the vacuum cap and almost completely delete it.
