I learned about acknowledging other vehicle owners when I purchased my 88 Porsche 928S4. Porsche owners flash their headlights at each other because we drive too fast to take our hands of the steering wheel.

I get waves from other Mini Cooper owners when I drive her.

I wave at all Wranglers and will return any Jeep wave that I get. I do notice that very few JK owners wave back though.

Rule 6:
Sometimes Jeep owners forget they are not in their Jeep and wave by habit. When occupants of non-Jeep vehicles wave, returning the wave is optional, but usually a good idea.

Yeah, sometimes while driving my Patrol car I wave at a Jeep and I get the Oh snap! what the heck did I do wave.

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 agree with being against power windows and locks. whats the point in a jeep the doors come off for gods sake doesnt do much good having power locks on a doorless jeep lol

It's just common courtesy to wave back at someone if they wave at you but I won't wave at them first. Same goes for any Jeep nowadays that's not a Wrangler (ie the top and doors don't come off). If you wanted a Wrangler you should have gotten a Wrangler. Don't front like you're down.

I will admit that I accidentally waved at an H3 a while back. It just came up out of the blue and fooled me for a sec. I probably made the dude's day.

So I'm not a real Jeeper because mine isn't modified? Sounds really snobby to me and against everything Jeep. I can't afford the mods I want right now cuz I have to pay my mortgage...

I currently own a KK liberty, my first vehicle. I did recently order a JKU and she's due to come pretty soon. At the time though when I got my license, I didn't feel right buying a 4 Door Wrangler as I was new to driving(Large vehicle, not aerodynamic...) and didn't want to spend the extra 15k that the the JKU commanded, but I still love Jeep. I understand NOT initiating a wave to a Liberty, but if the Libby waves first, what's your problem?

That said, I wave all the time to Wranglers in my Liberty. Every single Wrangler that has seen me wave has waved back with a smile, and I appreciate it. The ones who don't wave, are either soccer moms or just didn't see me. Usually they're too focused on the road and don't see me

Someone in a lifted Cherokee waved at me a few weeks ago. I waved back. We exchanged compliments at the next red light too. I figure it's a "Jeep" thing and not just a "Wrangler" thing.

Hmmm, in my area (southern mass) it seems to be a wrangler thing. I've never had a liberty or Cherokee wave at me. I suppose I would wave back because I'm a friendly guy but I haven't come across it. I work with a girl who says she won't even wave to JKU's because they're not real jeeps. Curiously though she will wave to me when I'm in my JKU. I think she's a jeep snob.

Around here the only unwelcome wave is from cop.
