I hope you dont plan on running a full-sized flag while driving down the highway, those things create an incredible amount of drag and would likely break off any mount or pole if you go fast enough. For a slow parade through the neighborhood i'm sure it would be fine

How big is the flag and pole? Maybe sticking it through the rear winder and lodging it in the cab? It would be at an angle though...

I also was wondering how to do this set up. I did see at Off Road Warehouse they have different set ups for the dessert. I have not tried any yet, but I am sure I will soon if no one has a better idea.

ahah well i think it will see some freeway driving. cause i want to hit up the shooting range tomorrow. i bought bullets instead of fireworks. the flag is a 3'x5'ish? i was thinking 5'-6' 3/4"-1" metal electrical conduit pole.

i've seen my co-worker do it with a full sized LAKERS flag but he strapped a 5 gallon bucket down to his bed, put a piece of 1-1/2" abs and surrounded it with cement. then put the flag pole into that.

That's also probably very illegal.

Get a CB antenna mount, one of the ones that mounts to a rig's windows (90 degree bend in it). Then go to Home Depot and get a 3' threaded rod, and four nuts to screw on it. Or six. Tighten the antenna mount onto one of the rail system's tiedowns. I'll post a picture of mine to better explain it.

CVC Pipe,550 Cord and interlock your bed rails to the Pipe, Good to go! I hit speeds of 75 mph and the flag was just ripping off a bit.

I dunno but I hope you don't plan on flying a confederate flag. There's some guy that lives in my town that flies one on his old Ram pickup. You lost move on, get over it.
