How Do You Put a Flag on a Truck Bed?

Having a flag on your truck bed is not only stylish, but it can also be a way to show your patriotism. Flags can be seen on the beds of many pickup trucks in the United States, and they are often displayed proudly.

Fortunately, putting a flag on your truck bed is an easy process that anyone can do.

Materials Needed:

  • Flag
  • Rope
  • Screws or bolts
  • WD-40
  • Drill with appropriate bit

The first step in putting a flag on your truck bed is to select the right flag. You will want to choose one that is made of durable material and that has been treated to withstand outdoor elements. There are many different types of flags available, so make sure you choose one that reflects your own personal style and taste.

Next, you will need to attach the flag to your truck bed. Depending on the type of truck you have, this process may vary slightly. If you have a metal truck bed, you may need to use screws or bolts to attach the flag securely. If you have a plastic or fiberglass bed, you may want to use rope or bungee cords instead.

Once you have attached the flag, it’s important to make sure it stays secure while driving.

To do this, you should spray WD-40 onto all of the screws and bolts that are holding the flag in place. This will help keep them from coming loose while driving.

Finally, if you want your flag to be visible at night, you will need to install some lights. This can be done easily with a drill and some appropriate bits for drilling into metal or plastic surfaces. Once installed, these lights can help make sure everyone knows where your patriotism lies.


Putting a flag on your truck bed is an easy process that anyone can do with some basic materials and tools. By selecting the right flag for your vehicle and using screws or bolts (or even rope) for attachment purposes along with WD-40 for extra security and lights for visibility at night – you’ll be able to proudly display your patriotism wherever you go!
