I bet if you flick some 1 off they will see that though..

I've desiced to wave only to tuned jeepers because usually if you see a tuned jeeper you know that person has a reason for buying a jeep and not just to get them to the mall and back..

Tuned means not stock?

You'll never wave at me then snob. I've had my jeep many years and it is totally stock. I guess I am less of a jeeper than you....

I don't know, Amerijeep, I guess tuned means not stock but I've never heard it called that.
I'll wave at you too.

I wave at all the Jeeps. It was a good week for the wave. I am probably 95% for the week. The more you wave at 'em, the more they get returned. You gotta get 'em trained.

I'm working on my sig, that's why it's goofy.

I live in chicago.. Here we have a lot of "gangsters" and "cool" !selfish! "people".. Many of whom think if you spray paint your rims and flip them around will look really cool and people will like you.. The other half of the people are sleeping behind the wheel.. or putting on makeup or talking on the phone or at last just not focusing.. I've owned a jeep for the past 4 months and i gotta tell you i've waived to every single Wrangler i've seen and have gotten a wave ONLY 1ce which was from a tuned jeeper (god bless you man you made my day).. By tuned i mean something that is in somewhat way different than stock.. even a sticker does the job for me. No offence to stocks but living here in chicago just plain sucks.. (again i'm 18 and still living at paternts house but the first good chance i get i will love to move away where people have something other on their mind than being "cool" and "rich")

Well, I live in a housewife driven hummer area and I drive a bone stock jeep, but I'm waving (actually, I give the peace sign, don't ask why, just kinda worked out that way). But I can't wave of the windshield dang it. Anyone have a phonebook to lend me???

Amerijeep, No its not.. and i will give you 1 good advice.. never move here!!! and wow your sigs text is huge

I've been with racing my entire life and thats where i get "tuned" from.. by tuned there we mean something that is somewhat better than stock: turbo for power, wider tires for better grip, lower suspension for better handling etc. The jeep i got 4 months ago is my first vehicle higher than 5" from the ground and a start to the off road adventure.

You have my complete sympathy for living in Chicago also, when I was driving long haul that was the only place I hated worse than LA or Seattle.
I can understand people not waving at you there, they're all pissed off all the time from being robbed by those godsforsaken toll booths.

Amy and I took a ride up to the top of Mt Spokane today and I made the same comment about modified Jeeps as opposed to stock Jeeps, every abviously modified Jeep waved, most stockers didn't.
We still waved at everybody.

I think the term tuned is coming from the rice grinders, the guys that modify those things to make em more annoying call themselves tuners for some reason.

Yeah you are correct..the meaning of tuned is modified by them anoying ricers.. what they usually do is paint their grill, winshield wipers, mirrors, taillight surroundings and their flipped 13-14" rims with the cheapest paint you can find in a store, and put on a stolen 10" spoiler, a 6" tip over the drilled rusted muffler and they call their little cheap car tunned. I gotta tell you man this anoys me a lot since i am a fan of "tunned" cars (real meaning) but what can i do.

What does the wave look like amerijeep?

I've gotten only 4 waves at me since I've gotten the Jeep (6 months). All of them were modified/lifted, 2 TJ's, 1 YJ, and 1 CJ.

I'm so used to being ignored or unseen when I wave that I'm caught off guard when someone actually does wave. It's funny, 2 of the waves were in the same day (yesterday) and they were both red, like mine.

most of the Wranglers I see are stock, and have women/girls driving them. (they're such a cuuute car, y'know).

Everyone in this area is too wrapped up in just trying to get from point a to b without getting into an accident. It's rare that I see ANYONE looking around at other cars or drivers, let alone a Wrangler driver.

Keep Wavin'

Chicago ok but don't know about the wave

Hello there Every one I too am from chicago and I didn't know about the wave, I guess its cool; Ive have my jeep for about 2 weeks and I don't think waiving is that smart in Chicago there's too many people that might get the wrong idea. In the area where I live some person might not speak english and get offended or translate the wave to mean something else. Its predominantly Latino. Close to my house about a 5 minute drive its predminantly African American and I wager--no and I know full of thugs, as it is in the area where I live alot of thugs there are certain areas where I don't drive at certain times of the day becuase of the people that live in the area. I hope to not come out as some racist because I am not I'm a realist I have lived in Chicago for 30 years and I am Latino.

Also about another five minutes in a different direction there are predominantly Italian people as a young boy passing flyers around working one summer for a pizzeria racial remarks were made in the direction of me and my friend for no apperent reason than the color of our skin--in the Italian neighborhood.
These are all realities in my eyes but I will begin waving a people, at Jeep owners because we could all be friendly.
My previous car was a 2006 Ford Mustang GT and one person with the same modle car started a friendly conversation about our cars at a stop lite in the streets near Ogden and Ashland.....there is hope!

I just want to write that in these areas that I have mentioned above I also know that there are alot of good people. I do not wish to sterotype because its not fair to the people in Chicago. But there are some knuckleheads kids that do not have anything to do but start trouble--but all the states of this Country have these knuckleheads not only the larger cities.

I live about 10 miles from you and its rare if I don't get at least 1 wave every time I drive my TJ since new/stock. I wave at every SWB and JK I see, any other Jeep that looks like it may see the trails, scouts, early broncos, solid axle yotas, any classic car, bikers, law enforcement, emergency services. Ok, so maybe I wave too much .

virtual_verve11 I also am from chicago. I hate being here and the first good chance i get i'm outa here. I also have problems with gangsters.. I totally hate people that think its cool to be black or mexican or polish or whatever the race may be... I dont want to sound racis to any one but it gets anoying when you have 14 year old kids walkin around the streets with guns because they think they are cool and they are "gangsters".. Many say the Mafia was so bad but at least they finished school and didnt drop out so at least you know the people holding the trigers are smart.
