I just went through the process with '06, and they say it fits the "regular" van, and the boards are 100" long. I just went and measured mine, and they're 100" long. I just guess we're "regular"
OK... glad we got that figured out lol
do you have a close up pic of them on your van....
I would like to see were they end frt and back ....

Looking closer at your van you have the new style radio antenna

Yes, but the passenger side does show it going just past the rear side door. I was in a hurry when I took those. I hope to get some more next week. I just moved, and promised Da Wife I'd work on getting the house straight, through Sunday. But I have my first camp trip in this van in 2 weeks, and need to build the bed, and install the stereo. I hope to document the whole thing. It won't be finished by the trip, but it will be usable.

That antenna is for the OnStar and XM/Sirius. Way different frequencies. I have the standard 31" FM antenna on the right fender. As a Ham radio guy, I would tell you that is the best antenna for FM. If your new radio is XM/Sirius, that roof one would work, but I'd bet it's not cheap.

No problem. I don't think the OnStar terminates at the radio, but the XM/Sirius should, and it seems to me that this antenna is actually two antennae in one housing. If my plan is on schedule, the radio thing should be Tuesday. A warning; if you decide to do this antenna, be careful if you have the side curtain air bags. I don't know if your '06 has them, but my '16 does, and I'm hesitant to mess with the headliner because of it. I used to do accessory installations professionally, back in the day, before air bags. I won't feel good about installing the hands free mic for my new radio, but I think I'll be okay if I just stay away from the sides. And I certainly won't be dropping the headliner. That's one of the reasons I won't be putting a Ham radio antenna on the roof. Truthfully, I don't know what I'm gonna do about that.
