I have a 4Runner and post on one of their boards. Somebody asked for a good MT tire. They all suggest all these AT tires, the most aggressive being the BFG AT. I post back and tell them none of them are actually a mud terrain tire. I tell them I have TrXus MTs and like the way they perform and may be worth considering. One of them responded that they were red neck tires, so I guess according to some the type of tires you run can make you a redneck.

Hell, I've allways been a redneck and proud of it. I've allways had ford trucks, jeeps and muscle cars. I've allways lived in the country, have Elvis TV trays, a clothes line in the back and a ford fairlane up on blocks in the front. P/U truck bed serves as a trash can for bud cans. Everything has a rifle rack and there's been many deer strapped over the hood of a mustang in a pinch. Deer season and family vacation is the same event. Spring trout fishing and ramp hunting is easter break. Christmass is still a yearly moonshine event served with deer and posium. My first words were cus words, my first pet was a rattle snake, my first solid food was snuff, first toy was a rifle and my first ride was a 52 CJ-3A at age 5. Still perfer to wheel in the mountains of W,Va where I was born, instead of here in muddy northern Ohio. So besides lift kit's, large tires, cherrybomb exhaust, rifle racks and CB's. There maybe a few other things that qualify me as a redneck. However, I must dismiss the rumor I married my 1st cousin, thats where I draw the line, she was my 2nd cousin. There is a big difference he he. Alot of this is joking, but I can, cause I am a redneck and if you can't have a little fun with yourself, who can you? Rednecks are just good ole boys who would do anything for a neighbor in need and live off of and respect the land that has sustained families for generations. Jeeps have allways been apart of mountain life since grandpa's 46 CJ-2A and our 51 willys farm truck. The model A P/U was a good truck, but we needed a truck with 4wheel drive because of the terrain. The jeeps still sit in the barn and get fired up every deer season for hunting. The model A only gets driven in summer parades now. Some things seem to last forever. I'm 51, and these rigs were in the family before I was born and still are. "O YEAH", rednecks tend to hold on th thier rigs, women and coon dogs ha ha.

The Covenanters of 1638 and 1641 signed the documents that stated that Scotland desired the Presbyterian form of church government and would not accept the Church of England as its official state church.

Many Covenanters signed in their own blood and wore red pieces of cloth around their necks as distinctive insignia; hence the term "Red neck", (rednecks) which became slang for a Scottish dissenter*. One Scottish immigrant, interviewed by the author, remembered a Presbyterian minister, one Dr. Coulter, in Glasgow in the 1940's wearing a red clerical collar -- is this symbolic of the "rednecks"?

In the United States the term came from the later 1800's in southern Georgia and Alabama to refer to sharecroppers who worked in the fields thus getting a sunburned neck. They were called 'rednecks' as a term meant for hard working people. Today, the term is used by comedians and commentators to refer to people who are uneducated, close-minded and racist individuals. And apparently now if you lift your vehicle.

If you understood only about a quarter or less of that, you might be a redneck.

I'd be proud to have you as a neighbor. City folk and the green weenies don't get it. Live in a cement city where they bulldozed the land and run off all the wildlife to build, then claim to be "environmentally friendly" because they drive an electric car to Starbucks. I'm in the city now, and looks like I will be for a while. But my heart and soul is country 'till the day I die. Admittedly, I'm not very high on the true redneck scale since I actually grew up more small town/farm community, but I'm honored any time one of these city slickers gives me the title. Means I'm doin' something right!

I'm a geek. I drive a Jeep to help me get through the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

I get told that I'm a redneck all the time, probably because I have a Case IH red rattle can paint job on my lifted rusted out Comanche. My welding table is constructed out of cinder blocks or the tail gate of the Comanche, I have a non working vehicle in the yard, have a motor on a stand and one in the dirt in the barn, I make hog trailers for a living. Oh and I have two missing teeth as well.
