CB Antennas, Should I do without?

What do you guys think? Should I take them off?
"Yes" for off
"No" for on

I personally like the duals. I wish I could get it to work on my truck but with the tonneau cover its kinda hard. Bought one of Alon's mounts

dual antennas on our trucks do not work, they are too close together and will cause interference... most of the people on this site, that i have seen, who have dual antennas, have 1 just for show...

take one off
dual CB Antennas should be 8ft apart to optimize your signal
rangers are not 8 ft wide so go with one
