Antenna to big??? vote

ok i bought a new cb antenna today, but i think i may have went to big..
its 5 ft.
I was planning on putting it on the rear bumper, but i think i am going to put it between the cab and bed.

do you think this looks to big?
maybe a 4 ft or 3 ft would be better.




this pic is before i took the other antenna off, and the tape is starting to give and fall over...lol

get dual antennas. I hear it adds no improvement, but aesthetically it looks better.

Looks fine, my whip is 108" and it's on my bumper, so that doesn't look too big at all to me.
