Thats a bigass flag, but i'd consider most CB antenna mounts to be stout enough..depending on the style however. The flexing is what will kill most mounts. A "real" rear bumper would be the next choice.

yeah, i dont want to go that big, but thats the general idea.

im still running the stock bumper and i dont want a hitch mount pole. i have the arizona cb mount... and it flops around with just the antenna on it, dont think it would hold with the flag pulling on it.

ill have to look in the jeep, but maybe u-bolting the pole to the rear roll bar?

I have a CB antenna mount that attaches to the body, and the antenna doesn't flex around (it only sticks up about 3-4" over the top, so hitting things isn't usually a problem) - it would easily support a flag.

I think the mount is made by workman, or something like that - and requires drilling a hole in the body. I mounted it next to the tail light.

Not trying to be a smart-ars, but why do you put flags on your Jeeps?

Exactly 12 hours later, and nobody has one good reason why you put flags on your Jeeps?

...why not? Why take the doors off? Why take your Jeep in the mud and get it filthy dirty? There are tons of things that are done...just because someone felt like doing it..nothing wrong with flying colors. Don't really need an excuse to either!

I was working the front gate at a hippy festival and my buddy was bringing me beers (on ice) in the 5 gal bucket on his bike. That's a friend! That's a damn good pic of a Jeep and a Flag though aint it?
