New here and got a question

Hello my name is Ryan and I recently bought my first Jeep Wrangler and love it. I am in a way ashamed that I waited this long to buy a Jeep, I bought a 01 yellow Wrangler 4 cylinder. I am curious to know what is the universal hand sign when passing a fellow Jeep owner? Is it a thumbs up? A peace sign? Two finger wave? I have seen all of these, and sometimes no acknowledgement at all. Also, I am preparing to upgrade my Jeep with a suspension lift, 3.5". I am currently doing research and talking with a friend he mentioned I may have to upgrade my differential. I am looking into a Super Flex short arm kit, can anyone provide me some direction, I truly appreciate any and all help. I look forward to learning from some real Jeep fanatics, take me under your wing I am eager to learn!!! RFLMAO!!



The road thru life is rocky...... Drive a Jeep!!

Right on, I've been doing the two finger wave mostly, but had some dude give me a full on jump out of his seat wave, was really kinda strange. To each his own, right.

I guess you can use any number of fingers (except just the middle one) the point is, juist wave.






We have a huge thread on the subject (mostly bashing other Jeeps that don't wave)

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .
