Flag pole bed mounts

Ok so before some of you say it, yeah yeah, it might be REDNECK, but who gives a shat......

that said, are there mounts available for the bed of the truck? Like for the corners of the bed? I'm looking to mount one in each corner, right behind the cab and was curious the best way to do so, preferable without drilling.

Ideas, suggestions???

depends on what kind of flag you're flying.lol most of the ones i've seen are just square tubing that just barely fits in there, but i live in s.c. where things aren't always done right.haha

You talking about fitting it into the existing holes? I was thinking more along the lines of mounting in the corner somehow, just don't know what....

how about come from the hitch and make it as a reciever so you dont have to drill into the bed.

I don't have a pic of it at this moment. Husband made it for me. It sticks a lil too far out for my liking. I've seen ones you can buy for the hitch for like $45.

Thats fine if you dont have a pic. If you get the chance though eventually, could you take a pic of it? I have a bunch of recievers around the house that I want to fab something up to for a flag pole.

You need an industrial strength magnet to stick to the bed and then make sure you have a metal flag pole and stick the pole to the magnet.

I'm brilliant!

I just rest the bottom of mine a groove in the bedliner and zip tied to the tonneau cover rail.

Mind you, the "pole" is quarter inch square tube, and it's really just for Canada Day. But I've had them on @ 60 mph.
