tennesee boy driving through texas....

So until i became a truck driver, i always thought FSJ's were becoming rare. I've spent the last 2 weeks making runs to texas, and holy carp if there not everywhere! They don't outnumber cows by any means, but yeah. I only know a handful of people in Tennessee that have FSJ's, and only a few of them run, and even fewer are in decent shape! I spent a few days in texas, though, and i swear i've seen 3 a day! and they're almost all in better shape than mine oh well. when i get ready to buy another one, i know where to go!
Since i have a decent paying job now, i plan to buy my waggy back from swampdrainer within the next month, and sell my raggedy honda civic to some highschool kid that likes big fat ricer mufflers and crap like that, lol. i don't ever want to be without a jeep again...

I usually tuck my pony tail in my collar and do 55 when driving through Texas...

haha, you scared, boy? i went through a border patrol checkpoint the other day, and my co-driver is from nigeria, and barely speaks english. they looked at him all kinds of funny, because he's not american, but he ain't mexican either. i can tell texas ain't the place to be screwin around, lol. I do like it, though. i'm going back today, actually. leaving as soon as my load's ready!

In the mid 80's I lived in the colorado mountains ans jackson hole wyoming. Everyone had one. They were as common as a subaru at a tahoe ski resort. I guess not much rust issues in texas.

You must have been way down south, Del Rio, Egale Pass, Brownsville or Kingsville way There are alot of fsjs in south Texas, its a big enough state that we can hide a buch of them.

Hey, Hey, Hey!!! You guys got the wrong state. That's Arkansas stuff (well, maybe in Austin too). Some of those boys do bleed over into East Texas.
There are indeed a lot of FSJ's of the road here. With a firearm under or behind the seat as well.

haha this thread is getting better every time i look at it... no man, i love texas! i'd never been that far west before last week. it is great. i've been all over, but most recently i made a run to McAllen which is really far down south, and is basically mexico. it was cool, but i could tell that i looked strange being a 6'2" white guy among the hermanos....
