    This is a little video I put together about how I made a flag holder for my truck bed. This setup works perfectly on my 2009 tundra. I never did find a good tutorial video so I ended up making my own in hopes to help other people who want to fly a flag. It's pretty easy. This could work for new/older models so I didn't put this post in a specific category such as "2nd gen tundras". If you do have a different gen and try this method feel free to post your results via message, pic, or whatever. Good luck! https://youtu.be/jziwMBITOWw

    welcome bud. This just may come in handy if I ever make it down to the dunes.

    @aramirez73 I haven't really ran this setup in the rain and I don't think I will. I'm trying to have this flag last as long as I can so I try to avoid having it out in the rain haha. If it's gonna rain I just simply slide it out of the pvc pipe, undo the flag, fold it, and store the pole.

    Not in TX...I have seen them on everything. Look at the video I posted. There is a white Tundra in the video. As a bonus, a Prius is made fun of.

    @ColoradoTJ @TTund16 LOL I've never seen a ridgeline flying a flag either. But yea around me I haven't really seen another Tundra with a flag.

    Thanks for posting this. Was just looking for flag holders to hang mah NASCAR flags on and they were in the $50 range. I can do this much cheaper.
