Question Do you wave at everyone driving a Jeep?

What is a "Jeep Thing"? When you see a jeep like a jk that is (clearly not) going to go off road anytime soon, do you wave? or do you and then feel like you were just violated? Here is my take: When the jks first hit the road i decided not to wave unless they do because they were full of people who didn't appreciate the same passion. Nothing against it, drive what floats ur boat put 30in spinners on it and dip the whole thing in chrome, i could care less. Thats just not my "jeep thing" Don't get pissy jk people, I have changed my mind some time ago with the jks because people are making disgustingly bad ass ones. However no matter the model, I "wave" to show solidarity in owning a capable 4x4. I wave because i appreciate the blood, sweat, tears and countless hrs that go into crafting a bad ass jeep. I wave because most people that drive a jeep love the open air and they see the world as a potential playground for said Jeep...... I don't do the wave to boost your low self esteem. I dont wave because we both have the word "jeep" on our vehicle Should i start waving to everyone with a penis because we both have one? FYI....sigh i still wave because my "dont be a dick" instincts kick in. I just tell my self "they just got it and are going to mod it" just my i alone?

having a Corvette and waving to another Vette is common, I was surprised when I read that Jeepers do it also.

So I try to wave at everyone that I see.:wavy:

We had our JKU for a month now, and I would say, we get 85-90% wave backs.

The ones that don't wave back are mainly offense. But when I see a JKU sahara, all windows up, and HT on and its absolutely beautiful outside, its most of the time a female driver or a guy who just doesn't care.

I wave, but they just look at you funny. So I don't go out of my way for them
