    Never heard of this one before

    Saw this post on social media today and have to admit, I don't hang out with any cowboys. But in six years of living in Utah, hanging out with hunters and deputies, I've never heard this expression before. Anyone familiar with this term?

    Not that term, which makes sense if one thinks about it, but I have noticed most jacked-up trucks don't get parked on the grass for fear of getting the tires dirty.

    This cowboy has ever heard the term before,but I have seen some of them in the metroplex.
    With all the “new country” music in Nashville, I bet that town is full of glitter chiggers.
    Guess it is the next generation of the urban cowboy fad in the late ‘70s
    John Travolta sure made a heck of a cowboy.

    That reminds me of the lounge lizards at the ski lodges, the ones with the finest equipment and the latest fashion but the only snow they get on is from the parking lot to the lodge.

    I can't imagine a Cowboy ever saying Glitter Chigger....just doesn't feel right.

    Have been in the boot industry over 40 years. Never heard the term either.

    Don’t see many GC’s in Nashville. Designer t-shirts and skinny jeans, yes. Foreign cars but few pickups for them.

    Contrary to the TV show NASHVILLE, “new country” music folk don’t appear to wear cowboy hats or
    “gimme” caps. Certainly not Wrangler 13MWZ jeans, and ropers. But then neither did Willie Nelson.

    Heard a rumor that the girls didn’t date cowboys because of the size of the “condom” they carried in their back pocket.

    I’ve never heard the term. Mostly around here they’re called “goat ropers.”

    Used to be all the fake cowboys only hung around areas where there were real cattle ranches. Glitter Chigger would imply they hung around places in east Texas where there are mostly farms, not ranches. There are no chiggers in the desert.

    A few of the real ranches were larger than some north eastern states. Look up the King Ranch.

    Never heard the term. I call those jacked up trucks that never leave pavement "mall crawlers".
