    I need a little help on this. Me and some of my friends are going to put American flags in our trucks for september 11th. I was woundering if any one had any idea how i should do this. I was thinking about making a frame out of 2x4s to hold the flag pole.

    LOL it wont be that high. I just finished it its a 6x6 with a 1inch hole in it with a one inch pipe with 2x4 supports it looks really good. My school is have a 9/11 ceremony we are have a convoy of American flags thats why we are doing it

    You know, now you have to post pix.

    Imp- If I put a flagpole in the back of my Ranger I think it would tip over.

    Glad to see your pride as well, we run 2+4s through a table saw till they fir in the slots of the bed, then bought the screw in eyes from lowes or hardware store. you get the idea?
    be sure to run a board at the base to keep the flag from pullin out the bed slot.
    do not use pvc as it will break
