There is a silver 04 by me ext cab, 4wd. Auto. I'm not sure how much he wants for it but it's on a lot. I asked If I could swap grills and he's like "I'm sure they sell them online..."

You'll have to keep up Pedro.
This is Michigan expressways we're talking about here. i'm sure you'll find some foreigners that could use a few tires full of screws too.

I still need to make some kind of bracket and find a really tall flag, Any suggestions?

I already drove on them. during the pouring rain i was tailgating and flashing my high beams for people to GTFO so i could find justin. I got stuck behind a dummy on the on ramp lol

for the flag, aaron welded a washer to a spare drop hitch and they have the flags there at david allen for like $10.

they also sell tow-hook flag mounts which is what i may do this year. don't think ill have a front hitch welded on by then.

Alex, this is what i have. Your tow hooks might be different or you might have the same style by then.
It's still on my truck, needs a re-paint and I've stood on it numerous times. In the words of someone..."if your flag touches your hood with this mount, there are other problems at hand..."

https://www.ranger-forums.com/project-logs-82/project-cry-baby-flag-mount-105567/

As for flags, I paid $15-20 for one that is a two piece design so it can be stored in my bed w/o sticking out.

Yea, I don't have Tow-hooks on the current rig.
I hate this part. I'm trying to get a new truck by the time the trip comes around, But i'm also planning on not getting a new truck and running the busted rig.
I can probably fab up some kind of Tab and mount it inside the bumper and just get a flag up there then.

Take a piece of metal and mount it to the bumper mount bolt. Between the bumper and bolt holding it on. Extend out 8" and drill a hole. I can measure the thread size on mine and let you know how big the hole needs to be. You could also weld in a front hitch and put your D-ring mount in there then drill a threaded hole in the top.

Someone else did that. I wanna say Justin or Pedro.
