Hello and welcome to the forum.
Congrats on the new Wing
For the CB end it will mess with the SWR (standing wave ratio) and you'd have to re-tune the antenna or it may not work correctly at all once shortened.
Even though its a PITA the antennas can be folded down for low overhead clearance.

hello tigerman, welcome to GWOF. cutting the cb antenna will mes up the swr and could lead to you burning up your cb. shortening the radio antenna could lead to poor reception

The Lady nailed it, don't mess with that CB antenna. Fold it down.
Good advice.

You can get a shorter antenna from firestick, do a search Or call Sierra electronics. But the easiest way is fold themn down.
