In the original Big Mutha Truckers, players were introduced to Ma Jackson, the proprietor of Big Mutha Truckers Haulage, Inc., who had decided she was going to retire. Ma encouraged her four children to compete against each other in making as much money as possible in 60 days in order to inherit the company. Players bought and sold goods from one of five cities, each with their own levels of supply and demand.

At the outset of BMT2, Ma - Hick State County's most infamous trucker - has been incarcerated on charges of tax evasion, 7,973 parking tickets, numerous health and safety violations and six counts of being a comedy stereotype! Imprisoned in her stone cell, Ma's only hope lies with her kids. It's up to this motliest of motley crues to locate six members of Ma's jury and bribe them. It's a simple story of simple folk doing what they do best: driving around the state , buying and selling a selection of goods both fancy and tawdry and everything in between. The trick is to raise enough cash to persuade the jurors to set Ma free. It's not all about trying to control those huge trucks at high speeds however...added threats come from the original BMT's police, biker gangs and trucking rivals, along with some unexpected new hazards such as aliens and drunken hobos.

The 'go-almost-anywhere' philosophy that featured in the original Big Mutha Truckers is expanded upon in BMT2, with additional routes, hidden shortcuts, and the ability to drive a selection of vehicles. Players have the freedom to deviate from their route and explore the highways and back roads to whichever city they decide to visit. The trading process is more streamlined, with more focus on the on-the-road action, and is a more enjoyable experience for it (and mildly amusing to boot). Them there trucks are still a bitch to handle at fairly high speeds and some of the timed missions take some conquering, but...there lies the longevity in the game. Lord knows, if there's a market for Corsa-driving doylums, there's surely a market somewhere for some kissing cousins, big rig action. Yee-hah!
