do you want them to be permanent? Or do you plan on taking them out after the event?

I used metal square tubing and secured it to the bed liner and the tonneau cover brackets. Only for Canada Day though.

LOL, oh come on now. The flags rock!!

I don't have any pics, but it's pretty easy to do. IDK if you have a tonneau cover, but here's how I did mine.

The white poles are in front of my tonneau cover clips that secure it to the bed. (The silver metal C-clamps) I just used zip ties that go around the white poles and through the c-clamps to hold them in place. I made a small notch in the bed liner to seat the bottom of the white poles. The tonneau itself also helps to secure them in. The flags really drag back at high speeds, so depending on if you want to travel around 55 MPH, you need to have good solid poles. I've had mine up to 55 MPH and they were pretty secure.
