wow, 2007, i wish my jeep was still in that good of shape lol

honestly i have no idea where it came from....My dad bough that flag back in the 70s when he went to silver lake and it has been in the garage for years....I decided one weekend i was going to go there so i stole it lol.

It was jut a l bracket with a couple holes....Pretty easy to make. If you make one, either make it long enough to put 2 bolts in it (though the bumper) or use one bolt then weld it on (what i did) What happened is eventually the bolt worked loose and the mount spun and the flag kinda fell over lol.

Like chad said, David allen can hook you up with something im sure....Do you have tow hooks in the front? I know they sell mounts to bolt onto doesn't really matter how you mount it as long as its not going of break off. If you do make a bracket made sure you drll the hole for the flag the right size. I dont know what it is but i can measure it for you tomorrow if you want. Then take 2 adjustable wrenches with you....Buy a flag there (around 16 bucks) and bolt it on...

Other than that, as far as jeep prep, just make sure all your fluids are topped off. it gets hot there and it will put the test on your cooling system. Since you are driving it so far home, i would stop at te first car wash you find and spray the sand out of everything. Especaily your front brakes, unit bearing areas, ball joints ect.

Updated pics for fun

Any questions just ask...More than happy to help. Im going to guess between me and chad we have been to silver lake at least 30-40 times in the past couple years, so we know a little about it.

BTW: i read your blogs and seen this
This is sad I have nooooo friends on her, nor do I know anyone else that has a jeepspace... lol. Maybe someday that will change? : P
So i sent you a friends least you will have one friend

headed down there aug. 26th

from the looks of his bracket it looks like you can just use some angle iron and bolt it up

or nock off the front bumper end cap and there is a hole in it this is what i did the first time at badlands

best pic i could find

buy the flag there cause it will be long enough i used my badlands flag and the kept giving me crap about it (too short and mesh) i modafied it enough to get me through the weekend next time i will just buy one
