In Texas, esp West Texas you get lots of waves on the Highways. Not so much in town anymore...too many people afraid to spill their latte's in the city.

Wrangler0 - not sure where you are from. But down south its a "common courtesy". - however I don't get butt hurt when people fail to wave.

Im in the NYC area....don't get to many waves in these parts, though the past couple of days I've been waved too twice.

Just to be clear, I'm not at all saying the wave itself is silly....if someone waves to me, I'll wave back. I've initiated the wave and havent gotten a wave back, but that's fine.

I just find it funny that people actually get annoyed if they aren't waved to or feel certain vehicles aren't worthy of a wave, that's all.

Wave on!!

The whole wave thing is ridiculously funny to me...'grown ups' getting bent out of shape if they arent waved to in their vehicles.

Amazing.....
I doubt the OP will answer you. The last time he posted was in 2007.
It's just a matter of common courtesy. Unfortunately, this is something that is becoming far less common.

Around here on the freeways people are too busy driving like a-holes to have the time to wave, except with the middle finger.

Wrangler0, no problem. The only reason I noticed is because there are posts from people who aren't here anymore.

I understand what you are saying about the wave.

I wave at cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, bicycles, golf carts, atv's, lawnmowers, strollers, pedestrians, skateboards and anyone with a dog.

Thinking about it though, we are in the same "community" by driving older cars, just like Wranglers, motorcycles (ever notice how guys on Harleys and Yamahas/other sport bikes even wave to each other) and school buses.

Yea, the KJ may not be a Wrangler, but for that matter, a CJ isn't a Wrangler either. What other brand uses a seven slot grille, squared off wheel openings and sponsors a camp for owners of all its vehicles, both past and present.

Plus, without the Grand Cherokees, Liberties, Patriots/Compasses, etc, there would be no Wranglers.
Not much beats rolling down the road in your old car watching people wave and their heads turn

"RESPECT ALL JEEPS." Wave at all of 'em.

And if someone else in another vehicle waves, wave back. Perhaps they are thinking of getting one.

So, if someone takes the time and energy to extend a friendly gesture, we need to stop and ask if they are worthy of our attention. Maybe his wave had nothing to do with his Liberty, but more to do with your Wrangler. Maybe this person has a killer Wrangler at home, but just happens to be driving another member of the family's Liberty. I have six cars. For most of this week I have been driving my daughter's VW Bug. I did some work to it, and I want to make sure everything is OK, plus I had the driveway sealed this week and some of the other cars are stuck in the garage. If I were driving that goofy Beetle and saw a Jeep I might wave, then someone would be on here saying "You would not believe the nerve of this goofy old guy in a Beetle waving at me". As a society we have way too many things to divide us, we do not need to be inventing more ways. Unless a person has too much chrome on their Jeep, that is a different story.

i dont get all of you, where does it stop? so we have to wave now to Libertys, the compass etc. Look if your in a vette do you wave to a porshce? no. A Jeep is not a Jeep sorry. Wrangler are wranglers for a reason. I am against it sorry, not to sound like a snob but seriously where does it stop. You are telling me the person driving the new Grand Cherokee is a Jeep enthusiast? Or if they have a Complass that they are enthusiasts? All of us who have Wrangler whether it be a CJ, YJ, TJ or JK we have a passion for JEEP. I am even against the power windows, door locks, the 2011 with the heated seats and mirrors, give me a fckn break! I have had 3 Jeeps and I would never and will never understand why you would get a Wrangler with power options. NO WAY! Jeep is going down hill in my opinion. I think the JK is the last of the real Jeeps and even as a JK owner I find the JK to be a little too civilized. Just my two cents.

I got waves today from a guy driving an F150, a lady walking her dog and a guy in a Civic and I waved back to all of them. Maybe the were admiring my Jeep, maybe they were just being friendly. I always take it as a compliment when somebody thinks enough of my Jeep to acknowledge it, or to just to be friendly.

Aaron...you would hate my JK...it has leather seats, power locks and windows and the navigation system.

Biffman, I am not against all the nice things in a vehcile I am not and to each his own. If you like it thats all that matters. I have a 370Z that has all the bells and whistles to me thats what a car is for not a Jeep. Again I have no problem with waving I dont, but I like to think the wrangler wave is for wranglers you know. And yes im including the CJ's you all know what I mean.

I've not read all the posts in this thread.....
Someone waves to me, I always wave back.
Whether I'm in my jeep, subie or wr250r.
Whether the waver is in a similar, superior, inferior vehicle or not.
I judge not, will always wave back, regardless.....
Now, as far as initiating a wave, don't get me started *grins*

I'm not going to lie.. I'm one of those "Elitist Jerks". I only wave to other Wranglers. Well, except I sometimes don't wave at YJs. (Sorry, their kinda like the bastard step-children of Jeeps... or as I call it.. "the dark period of Chrysler history") I said sometimes though, I'm a girl.. I change my mind a lot. Oh, and my brother.. I don't wave at him at all. Well, at least not with the whole hand.

But on a funnier note, I yelled at my husband (and smacked him in the back of the head) for NOT waving at other wranglers. Now in protest, he has started to wave at other Yaris's when in his car. /rollseyes.

I wave at Wranglers and whoever waves at me...some people take it so seriously...I just think it's a fun little extra that comes with being a Jeep owner.

And to all you ripping on the JK owners...just keep waving, they'll get it eventually

When I got my TJ I was told the wave was only a Wrangler thing. I wave all the time, I don't get butt hurt if someone doesn't wave back. I did get waved at once by a Liberty and I too was really surprised that it happened, I did wave back though but it was delayed and he probably didn't see it.

I wave from my wifes minivan and she always makes fun of me when she sees me do it. This is why I always wave back no matter what the "wave initiator" is driving, he/she may be a Wrangler driver and it has just become instinct to do it.
