Thanks for noticing. I flipped the image over so the jeep was facing the same way in both pix. Didn't think anybody would notice. So a cookie to you all for noticing! Looks weird with the driver's wheel on the right side of the car.

Cool flipped pic .. not very often I see the American flag "backwards" ...

Any Jeeper worth their metal would notice that the pic was flipped. Now... with a little bit of photo editing .. it could be made to be a little more difficult to notice that it was flipped

Look closely ... and you have an Aussi right-hand-drive model

Nice Mods on the Jeep.

Just a note on the "Backwards Flag"

It is actually flown correctly in the original reversed pitcure. The Blue field should always be placed towards the front of a "Moving Flag" regardless of whether that makes it look like the blue field is on the right or left of the flag. To fly it the other way as Naekid "corrected" it would be the image of a flag retreating from the forward motion of the Jeep. To figure it out always imagine the flag on a staff. The Blue is connected to the staff and the stripes fly freely in the opposite direction. This is why when you see U.S. soldiers with a Flag on their right shoulder it also appears "Backwards" to the casual observer.

The Jeep looks great 'Trooper , and thanks for flying the flag!!!

Thanks for the props. You gotta fly old glory and you gotta drive a Jeep, its the American thing to do. But seriously, i'm proud to be an american and my family's spilt blood and died for it. Its my small way of honoring that, and supporting the troops in action now.

Nicly noticed. I also Have flags on my rig and get questioned about the passenger side withe the field forward. I had a vinyl shop make my flags and he even questioned me on my request, so I explained to him that the flag should always face foward as if CHARGING to battle. I also am a Vet. with a full family of military. I am glad to see the Flag on your Rig. It looks awesome on the 35's. NICE WORK.

I had to explain this concept to a fellow air traveler this weekend when he remarked that the plane at the gate next to us had a backwards flag.
