Factory Sirius Satellite

I have a 2009 Ranger with factory Sirius tuner and an aftermarket Alpine IDA-X001 generation one ipod deck. Does anyone know if I can plug the factory tuner into the alpine interface or failing that, can I at least use the factory antenna with the alpine Sirius tuner?
Obviously I'd like to have to buy as little additional hardware as possible; I can't believe that Alpine makes you buy a tuner AND an interface module to work with your deck!

If the connector on the the sirius antenna is the same.. then yes.. but i don't believe it is.
some xm antennas in the gm's would work.

now remember you still will need to purchase the sirius tuner interface kit for your alpine deck, which i believe has the antenna with it. just check the connectors. if they aren't the same.. you'll have to put in the other one.
