    I have a massive flag for my school that I want to be able to mount to my truck for driving around on game days, etc. Is there a mount I could buy, or somewhere on the truck that already works for that?
    Thanks in advance!!!

    American Flags mounted on vehicles should be mounted to the right fender while in motion.

    If it is going to be parked use a front receiver mount

    1/2 carriage bolts, a 1" thick piece of plastic (im sure TREX decking would work) and a regular household flag pole mount.

    I am with you on that. Its definitely pricy. It looks very well made so I am really considering getting it later on. I really like your idea and would totally do it if i didn't have a G2 bakflip bed cover.

    I'll be in the same boat. I'm doing a camper shell. I haul too much crap.

    Thanks all for the replies, It's a 7 foot long flag, so not exactly "massive" flag in retrospect, but it is big. Thinking of getting a BAMF CB mount to use to hold it?

    DEMikey did you screw the bolts through the track or bedliner?? Trying to figure out how it's secured to the track.
