These guys also seem to have it right, but I have not used them myself:

1996-2002 Toyota 4 Runner Power Antenna Parts, 86300-35111, 86396-89102, 86392-35020, 86337-35111
Thanks for posting that! It's the same one I ordered last week after mine met the cruel demise at the hands of a car wash. (I'm not used to having to put my antenna down...Tacoma owner)

Replace it! I have a $2.00 ebay carbon fiber shorty and a $12.00 metra antenna kit. I like the low profile look, unlike my cb antenna lol

Just ordered it from the link posted above.
Thanks TheDurk!
I read all the posts on it I could find, always do, but could not settle on which place to order from till your post. Again, huge thanks, saves much going with a know seller with a known fit.
I belong to all kinds of forums, this group rocks!

It's a power amped antenna. Sticks to the inside of the windshield.

This is what I have and I love it....

I still need to cover that hole, what are you guys using?

My antenna (mast) is broken too. Upon turning the truck on/off, the motor makes noise for a few seconds. I want to at least disconnect it, and I would ideally like to replace or fix it.

Here is my question...
My radio reception is still really good. I have an aftermarket stereo that was installed before I bought the truck. Have others found that their reception is still good, even after the stock antenna mast breaks?

If you have an aftermarket stereo you will want to split the antenna to gain the diversity antenna in the rear glass. I rarely need the front one up to get perfect reception. See Rocks thread Guide on How to Combine Both Front & Rear Antennas into One on an Aftermarket Stereo - YotaTech Forums
What is this you say about a rear window antenna?

This is exactly what I did on my 97 Limited and my 99 Limited. When the "inner-workings" finally gave out, I got so tired of hearing that darn motor running every time I fired up and shut down the truck - I pulled up the antenna and unplugged the motor. Done deal.

Good call, man!

What is this you say about a rear window antenna?
In general when we are talking about the mast breaking, we mean the white plastic gear strip INSIDE the mast breaks or no longer engages with the drive motor gear so the metal part of the antenna is intact, but does not go up and down. In this case, as long as you can leave it extended, reception is unchanged.

If you actually break the metal part of the mast, reception will be affected, but less so if the diversity antenna is connected. In some situations, it will make no difference at all, but in most it will do better with both antennas at work.

The rear window antenna is explained in the linked thread, but they are fine wires in your cargo area side glass (I forget which one.) Take a look, it's there.

Thanks. I know about the wires in the back window that you are talking about, I just didn't know what they were for. They are on the passenger side on my 4Runner.

The antenna in the front is gone. The motor runs and does nothing. There is no antenna to raise or lower. The reception is still good.

I would guess that's a stock radio and it is doing fine with the diversity antenna, unless you live quite close to the broadcast antennas and you get reception on your teeth fillings.

I'd buy a raderra mast and try to install it. You may have to remove the antenna motor and clean out plastic pieces left behind.

These guys also seem to have it right, but I have not used them myself:

I bought the one from antennamastsrus from Amazon I think it was. Works perfectly. The cheaper ones from Ebay have smaller teeth and don't work properly. It's great to have a power antenna that works. Make sure you turn off the radio IF you use automatic car washes. I don't use them except for the "bottom blasters" in the winter to remove salt and beet juice,etc.

It was the metra kit for the 2nd gen 4runner. I didnt use the bezel that came with it I just used the spacers the shorty antenna came with to retain the antenna stem position.
