I didn't really take notice until I took Vacation this last week. Whether you're in any Wrangler model, it seems there is discrimination or Jeepers with blinders on. Made a trip 5 hours North, and the closer I got(about 1.5 hour out), those in all Wranglers waved. So the question is, if it is a Wrangler, do you wave or discriminate? Having really paid attention this past week, the majority of Jeep Waves exchanged were by 35-55 years of age.
License to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. Man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong - Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that's all she wrote.
X2 - But yeah I wave unless I'm distracted and don't see them in time. Even if they don't wave back.
When you are in a very dense populated area, waving gets missed sometimes while always watching the car in front to slam on their brakes cause they don't know how to drive and they think that waiting till the last second to come to a complete stop is their best way to save gas money
But an hour north of Springfield - to me that's countryside - everyone in an SUV, Truck, or even a mini-van will wave at you if you wave first. That's just the way it is in the country (as I've noticed by driving south on state highways instead of the interstate - and most definately how it is in TN, KY, IN, Downstate IL, GA, AL, and North Florida).

No one waves in the western burbs. I return every and instantiate many (even to JK's , but I grow weary.
Then again my perspective is rather skewed - my other car is a vette and you never, ever pass another without a big wave. I would chase you down and say "what the hell is your problem?" in it, but alas in my jeep it seems rather optional.
I'm waving regardless if I get one back or not, but I just picked up my JKU. I traded my FJ cruiser for the JK, you would have thought there would have been a tighter community with FJs but no suck luck really. Hope to see you guys around the west suburbs
