Radio Antenna Loosening

Hey everybody,

I went 4x4ing on this tiny road that was completely overgrown with small alder trees growing on the shoulders of the road last weekend. The alders left only a very small path (about shoulder wide) down the middle, but in 4LO in first gear I could very very slowly work my way along the road while letting the alders brush up along the sides of the truck.

As a result of this abuse my radio antenna is now "wiggly" (yes, that's a technical term). My question is how do you tighten the stock radio antenna on one of our trucks? There does not appear to be a nut on the bottom, so I'm assuming some kind of special tool is needed? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Look at the base of the antenna right above the plastic fender adapter, there is a chrome ring that has 3 little notches in it, grab it wih some pliers and tighten it up. If just the whip is loose there is a hex under the rubber cover.
