Saw a white ST cruising on 78 in NJ tonight. dude had a beard. I honked at him but I was in my Discovery and he seemed like he thought he was driving a Jeep.

I took all of your advise and drove my truck to the city, brought 2 bottles of lubs, and drove up and down 3rd, 5th, and 6th avenue in lower Manhattan. I didn't see 2 Defenders but i spotted 1. If you look at one of the photos closely you'll see my truck. It's almost the same colour as the one that I spotted today.

That's Andre's truck - he lives basically behind my apt - his was the truck I figured you'd see yesterday when I told you to drive between 5th and 8th Aves in the West Village.

Oh, and 3rd Ave and Jones Street don't intersect as far as I know - maybe you mean Bleecker and Jones or West 4th Street and Jones?

I was heading downtown on Bowery Street and made a right on Jones near 3rd street. I was on the East side near the 3rd avenue Men's Shelter. If I could remember, I think there's a firehouse near there. I could be wrong. The truck was in front of a bar. I really liked the truck and it has a cool roof rack on it. I want one like that.
