American Flag in Truck Bed?

Hey guys I'm been kinda tossin' around the idea of fabbin' up a flag pole to hold Ol' Glory up in the air in the bed of my truck.

Any of y'all done it? I see people with flags in their bed stakes but I don't wanna soot her so I figured I'd use the "bigfoot" approach.

I don't wanna weld anything permanent, probably some bolts at most.


Anybody know where I can get a flag that'll hold up to 60mph with 75mph gusts for a while? lol

I took a whip and zip tied a flag to it and wedged it in my tailgate.

Yea I gotta gooseneck....I thought about incorporating that already....

I'd like to use at least a 4x8 flag or bigger....

I guess I'll just use some square stock we got layin' around.... I just need to find a good flag... I don't think the weatherproof flags will hold up too much... might hafta try a cloth one
