Named after my FJ40. It didn't have nickname for years (I bought it in 1999).

In 2003, we were running Spring Creek on the annual Father's Day run. One of Bill Morgan's passengers jumped in with me for the day. He was a high school kid, a wrestler IIRC (don't remember his name).

He knew Bill's truck was called "Red Chili" so he asked if my 40 had a nickname. I said no, but I wouldn't mind one. It was just that nothing I had thought of seemed right.

After running the rock garden, my passenger suggested "The Hulk," since my 40 was "green and mighty." The name stuck. There was a new Hulk movie in the theaters at the time, so Hulk awareness was high. Being a comic book fan back in the 70s, I was enthusiastic.

Back in High School my girlfriend (then) and I had gone to see Finding Nemo. Sometime after the movie she was getting out of my truck and fell flat on her face turned around and yelled, "BAD SQUISHY!" and it stuck.

My name is Chris...My FJ color is Sandstorm...So no big mystery...

However when I started receiving packages in the mail addressed to Chris Sandstorm...The wife rolled her eyes and said "you have a problem.."

We don't really have a nickname for our rig. We just call it the FJ.

Martin David Huber lucky number '33' = MDH33
Martin, you raise an interesting point. I'm with you thinking that choosing your own nickname is rather boorish, witness George Castanza on Seinfeld, choosing the nickname T-Bone. Nicknames, IMO, should be given by others and, generally, earned. Screen names are a different kettle of fish however, but they still seem to stick as nicknames these days. I can't imagine calling you MDH33 on the CB but names like Uncle Ben and Cheeseman slip right of the tongue. A conundrum. While leading trails for the first time this year at Cruise Moab, hearing my Rising Sun screen name on the radio gave me pause, wondering what folks might be thinking as they heard "Crash" being hailed.
