This sucks because the Mississippi State Alumni association has been working with TxDOT this whole time($40), but now it's gone through MYPLATES and will be the fees shown below....

1 year = $195
5 years = $495
10 years= $595

This is on top of the regular registration fees....What a friggin rip off....
This is only accurate if you want one of the Custom plates not offered by TxDOT. I have Texas Tech Plates with SNOTS on the back and I pay my reg + $40 for the Tech Plate (which the majority goes to the school) + $03 or $40 for the custom SNOTS on the back. I pay this each year.

Now if you go through the MYPLATES deal they do have a much wider selection of plates. Like the Texas Tech Plate has more school colors on it and such. But you have to pay the fees above for the right to the plate. Also none of the money actually goes to the schools fund so I was definitely out on that.

you can still get the standard Texas plates with personalization on them directly through TxDot though. You can evne type in on there website exactly what you want on your plates and it will tell you immediately if that is available or not. Instead of having to call in and or go up to a tax office. You can do it all from your computer now. Just dont hit the link that takes you to the MYPLATES site and you can do it directly through TxDOT.

Here's mine, the reason I decided to get this was because for some reason whenever I drive my Jeep, there is never a single vehicle in front or behind me. The few times I do see a Jeep on the road, they either go too fast, or too slow.

I don't like Jeepin' alone, but...my Jeep seems to be alone on the road 90% of the time.

I know the DMV can be kind of picky if they think a plate is 'offensive', but do you think I could get away with 'F ROADS' as in 'F*** Roads'? I live in Texas by the way.

Any other combination similar to this would be good if anyone can think of one.

F Roads would probably work. Tell em that it's your friend's nickname or something.

So I went on the TX DMV site and created my plate, I am limited to six characters total including spaces. I want an abbreviation of 'F*** ROADS', but I can only do 'FROADS', do you think people will get it or say what the heck is FROADS?

Help me out here guys. I will try to post a pic

Taylor87- I think FROADS will be easy to understand.
