Just searched it on google images....thats the one i have

the flag pole popped out while driving down SZR, not the whole thing broke off.....so i just need another flag pole to snap onto the already present mount bracket

tomorrow morning will pass by icon auto before work and after work i'll make it to ramy4x4 to compare both poles and prices.....thursday i'll take my decision and go for the better option

I recommend Red Pole & Teraflex CB Antenna Mount Kit from Ramy 4x4 below. I usually mount the antenna (hand tight only) when I go off-roading & remove it again when hitting the road. I hope this will give you an idea. Cheers :)

What you need:

1. Glass suction cup

2. Small angle bracket

3. Couple of bolts and nuts (I use 5mm)

4. Drill



See image below for the finished product.

Thanks Francis, I've posted this to might help fellow almosters using suction cups to properly fix their poles simple and easy.

I like that red pole specially the two parts type like the one with Bu Salem.

I have a very practical solution from a lesson I learnt whilst driving behind Zico once. Goto Dragon Mart, buy an orange bicycle pole and mount it to Jeep on an existing bolt, preferably behind the spare tyre. Tie the flag before drive, untie it afterwards. The flexible pole is 4mm fibreglass and costs 15 dirhams and withstands 160kmph drives. Looks really good too, like an extra antenna.

Thanks Maddie for your solution but i just got back from ramy4x4

i went ahead with the flag pole from there as strawb had suggested but i will look for that orange bicycle pole from dragonmart and keep it as spare.....do you have the shop number where i can find that pole you're mentioning?
