I learned about the wave the second day I had mine. Got my first one yesterday, a little old man in a TJ. I hope he saw me wave back. I waved to a JK this afternoon but he wasn't even looking at mine, WTF?

It's probably been said before, but keep in mind how easy it can be to miss a wave or even a Jeep entirely when lost in thought or concentrating on the road. I would recommend trying to assume the best when someone doesn't return or offer a wave. There are a million reasons why this might happen.

Of course, one of those reason IS that the driver is a jerk, but...

Just saw a black Rubi on my way to my dentist but he didn't wave back! Hope I get one back when I'm driving home with my swollen face... :-)

I say keep waiving. New Jeepers will catch on. I lived in a small rural military town when I owned my first Jeep; I caught on pretty quickly and I'm not all that bright, lol.
I live in a bigger urban military town nowadays, there are hundreds of Jeep owners with different backgrounds and interests, the vast majority will never take their Jeeps beyond off pavement, I still waive. I VERY rarely get a waive back, but I put myself in their shoes. The waive was a new thing to all of us once, right?

The first time out in my Jeep, I received waves from a couple people. At first I thought something was wrong but I caught on quick. When my teenager rode with me the first time, he questioned why we waved at each other. I told him I belonged to the secret society of Jeeps and he wouldn't understand. I love my Jeep.

I didn't read all these post, and it might have been covered already in 36 pages of responses, but the lack of waves has been going on forever. I think it comes from the newer models not being considered 'real' Jeeps, too cushie. Square lights, plastic dashboards, longer wheel bases and axles and to top it off, sat lower. Then the Cherokee. That grocery getter didn't have a frame! What the h•ll is a uniframe? And so on. Now, they are almost the size of Hummers! I think the wave evolves with the willingness of the Jeeps owner with how willing they are to chance beating it up.
I don't think you are going to get the people whose main concern when they climb in one is if the A/C and stereo work to wave.

BTW, I love running around town and climbing the rocks in my TJ with top and doors off, A/C blasting listening to the radio!

Opinions are like A-holes, and everyone's got 1. So here's mine. Are you ready? I think the whole Jeep Wave ordeal has been blown way out of proportion . Obviously I drive a 2007 jk, which by some is not considered a true jeep. Wth is that about anyway. If I see a jeep, I waive regardless. Mods, no mods... It's a freaking jeep for.crying out loud. You just come across someone that shares 1 of your very interest. A JEEP. Show a little respect. I live in a small town and there are several wranglers, cherokees. All yrs.. and I'm sure that at 1 point or another we waive at 1 another a few times a week. Regardless of the yr . Jk,cj,tj , they enjoy there JEEP just as much as everyone else. To many damn politics. That's the problem with the world to... To many nonsense dictators!!! That just my 2 cents...

I agree (I say "Opinions are like arm pits, everyone has more than one and most of them stink" Some of you might say the same of mine - lol)

Anyway . . .

I have a JKU and I wave @ any wrangler I pass and get a 75% response.

I have seen threads listing the hierarchy of who should waive first, etc. but I think that's allot of bull.

I wave @ the individual with the spirit to drive a Wrangler and enjoy what the Germans call "Farfegnugen", not sure of the spelling but it means "The Joy of Driving"

Okay, I'll step off my soap box now and give wave to you all!

Totally agree I wave at the driver not just the jeep. To all those that get enjoyment from a Jeep, JeepVergnugen.

I honestly don't think I enjoyed driving as much, or even held the same attitude towards driving in the past that I now have with my Jeep.

Now I don't care where or when, I'm flying!
(You're buying though, I have Jeep and gas payments to make!)

Just finished a 1,200 mile trip this week and I must have waved at around 40 jeeps throughout 3 states and only got 3 waves back. Granted some maybe couldn't see me wave because of the distance between the lanes on the interstate but needless to say I was a bit disappointed being that was my first road trip in my jeep.

Now, around my town though I get lots of waves. The first weekend we had our jeep my wife asked had we joined a new club... it was awesome!

So, if you see me... expect a wave!

all depends where you live. My area is full of people that have a jeep cause it's a car (and soccer moms). The people who by jeeps cause it's a jeep get it and wave haha.
