Mine will definitely be flying. I'm just trying to figure out how to attach it so that it will stay put at 80mph.

Mine is mounted to the stock tire carrier. I removed the third brake light a while ago and the hole for the wires happened to be exactly 1". I got a steel flag pole and just put it through. To keep it from just sliding down all the way i screwed in some self tapping screws to act as a stop

Does yours actually wave. Mine just stays limp from wind hitting both sides.

old_blue 09-03-2011 09:05 PM

mine starts waving at 35mph, any slower its limp

TBrownSTL 09-03-2011 09:08 PM

Ok. Mine freaks out above 35

old_blue 09-03-2011 09:10 PM

hope you got a nylon flag, a cotton flag will shred to pieces lol

TBrownSTL 09-03-2011 09:12 PM

I think it's cotton. Not sure.

TBrownSTL 09-03-2011 09:38 PM

that prolly work. my flag is zip tied to the poll and holding just fine. just use lots of them lol

old_blue 09-04-2011 10:46 PM

Btw today i learned that when you drive topless the wind makes the flag wave into the jeep and hit me in the face. So basically i got bitch slapped by America :banghead: :surrender:

I put on my windjammer. I originally did it just to have a wall between me and the flag but it somehow makes it blow backwards now
