Since you mentioned running the 6 dBi on the trail, you're probably already thought of this and taken it into account, but if not don't forget about the tradeoffs of gain vs radiation pattern when offroading. Can't hurt to have the 3 dBi option for coms when you're on uneven terrain and need to reach the rigs around you, then the higher gain options for once you get to flatter and higher ground and can take advantage of the range.

I have an MXT115. That’s interesting and a little frustrating if we can’t update the firmware to allow split tones. I’m guessing not?
I ended up getting the The MXTA25 3dB gain antenna for the reasons you stated and that its so low profile my 4Runner now fits into the garage with it. I can already tell it doesn't have quite the range but ill always have my 6db antenna if i need it.
I had to buy it from some random dealer online since the manufacturer is completely out with no ETA. This also prompted my purchase. lol
