Heck, my 14 year old daughter even knows and does the way. Wave backs are hit and miss and she really get pissed when other don't return her wave. It's entertaining to watch her.

I have instructed \ educated my woman to wave to any and all Wranglers not jeeps in general (Sorry to offend) I am a JK owner and to be honest I wave ALL the time. I get NO response from other JK's and only maybe 50% from older jeepers.

All JK owners are not that young that they have never heard about the wave I'm just sayin

"WRANGLER = IT'S A WAY OF LIFE"
Just so no one loses hope - I am a woman & I have a JK & I wave at every Wrangler I see, 2 or 4 door. I am usually the one who waves first & I have actually found the women in western Pa. to be more enthusiastic with their waves than the guys. Don't worry. There are some of us Jeeper girls out here!

When I pass another Wrangler I can usually tell right away by looking at the person if they will wave back or not. I have a newer Jeep and I'm younger and have seemed to notice that older Jeepers don't like to wave back to me.

I just bought my JK last month, I didn't even get it home when I noticed that two different wranglers waved at me. I figured it was just riding the motorcycle, some people wave some don't. I know that I love driving the jeep regardless of a wave back or not.

Around here only the CJ/TJ owners wave, the JK owners don't have a clue or don't want to spill their Latte's.

I am looking into getting my first jeep- every dealer so far has told me during the test drive about the "wave" - kinda like Harley/ and bikers.. its a Jeep thing- I am learning..
hopefully a dealer will give me good deal on my ranger to trade this week- so I can actually make the deal...!!!

From all the people in this thread that are admitting to learning the wave from these forums, I'm convinced the plethora of threads on "the wave" are doing some good.

Personally I'm a bit selective. I don't even look at non-wranglers to see if they're waving, and anything with less points than me (see the jeeptalk thread linked earlier in the thread) has to wave first.

I got my Jeep in June. The guy at the dealership did tell me about the wave. He was a Jeep owner himself. He did mention that the women drivers tend not to wave but I am trying to break that cycle. I wave at every Jeep I see. Most of the times I just get wierd looks from people. Oh well! :o) I will continue to wave and educate. It was pretty exciting the first wave I got back from a Jeeper though.

I drive a JK and I wave. I'm glad the internet gave us msg boards so those like you can talk smack from the safety of their arm chair. I know alot of other jeepers talk about the JK's being driven by soccer moms who don't need/use them for their intended purpose, but I see plenty of TJs, YJs, etc. that never leave city limits and don't wave. Believe it or not... never mind, I'm clearly wasting my time here.

I just tend to wave at people anyway. Growing up in NW PA, we waved, we knew most of the people in the small town I grew up in. Then later living in the south and in the country, everyone waved at each other. Going back to visit friends in SoCal, I would wave at people only to get strange looks. My wife laughed about that. I even wave at cops. A co-worker of mine had a YJ and would only wave at Wranglers, I wave any Jeep. I even do it when not driving the Jeep. I do get some odd looks from Jeep owners, guess it is just a habit for me.

Waving...I wave regardless of the inbound Jeep. I have noticed that the older Jeeps drivers tend to have a more consistant response than some of the folks driving the newer ones. Not pokin fun at JK owners, just sayin'. I have had 5 Jeeps, my first a Cherokee, and the last 4 wranglers. I have never had anybody in another Explorer wave as I drove in the opposite direction lol. Hey...it's a Jeep thing!

I'm sick of "NO WAVE BACK" from TJ's/YJ's, so anymore, I only wave at school buses and other yellow jeeps, oh there's a yellow H3 in my little town in Nevada and we wave at each other !!

Jim, my other vehicle is a Corvette which suffers from the same situation. I just keep waving and if they don't get it, so be it.

Every morning on the way to work I wave to a fellow TJ..every single morning the same guy, ONE of us may one day get tired of waving at the same person everyday...ha!

We shall see..

My normal wave 99% of the time is, arm hanging out of the tub and a quick rais of the hand type wave.

Again this morning, guy in his 30's/40's, motorcycle 'do rag, lift kit, bikini top, over-sized off-road tires, no doors. I waved, he leaned and looked. No wave.

if i repeat anything i am sorry, i don't have time to read the whole thread!

when i sold jeeps at a chrysler/plymouth/jeep dealership around 2000, i learned about the wave when my manager came in to close my first wrangler sale for me. he told the customer, "buying a wrangler is not like buying a normal car, you are joining a family! ... there's even a wrangler salute. whenever you pass another wrangler, wave at them and they will wave back.. " he did mention something about newer wranglers have to wave first at older models, but i don't bother checking for "rank" i just wave. point being, though jeep did not officially include the wave in the product education material (they should), this is something they used to teach at the dealerships. my theory is that since most dealerships are like revolving doors when it comes to all employees below owner, the newer staff just isn't learning this part of the sales pitch!?

so my point is this, i wave at everyone and hope the new J/K owners just don't know and aren't being snobby. i even wave at the square headlight, redheaded stepchildren LOL!!! with the risk of sounding sexist ( i am not sexist but do understand vehicle demographics) i am sure the man to women ratio of wrangler owners is likely around 75%male to 24% female ( leaving 1% undeclared LOL) there is a better chance the women who aren't waving back are the wives of the real owners and probably think the wave is a foolish machismo thing similar to pro athletes patting each other on the butt (sort of what my wife says about it) and i am sure in the case of a woman owner, her husband may feel something along the same lines ( like my sister, TJ_babe, and her husband who now waves at other toyota yaris drivers just for spite!!)

i have noticed everyone has their own way of waving. many do the simple 2 to 4 finger lift while still holding the wheel, some give the peace symbol, and occasionally the full hand original wave, i've even seen the old military salute.. some wave behind the windshield ( most common with the top on), opthers out the side with no or half doors, and some above the windshield to demonstrate the ability to do so as if bragging that they have the top off.. i for one use the hawaiin shaka since it was our trip to maui that convinced my wife to let me get a wrangler! ( for those who don't know what the shaka is.. thumb out, 3 fingers down, pinky out and shake.. \,,,/ ) and if the half doors are off the i stick way out there to make it obvious for those who do not know ( and a little to shove it in the face of those who know but choose not to)... so my question is, how do you ???

REAL jeep owners wave

My theory on the wave is that the REAL jeep enthusiasts are the ones who wave. The posers (people who drive a jeep just for name value only) don't know enough about the jeep culture to follow up.

I've cultivated this theory over the past two years of my own jeep ownership and my personal experiences with wavers and non-wavers. You can sort of tell the people whose jeeps never leave the pavement and those who do. And predicting who will wave and who won't is pretty easy after that. I wave regardless and try not to take offense if it isn't reciprocated; after all, there have been some times that I was deeply absorbed in thought and just barely noticed a wave before it got by me, so I know I've actually missed a few unintentionally. I try to give the benefit of the doubt.

100% behind you on this theory.

So I ask of you If you happen to be passing a Dealership and you happen to have time stop in and talk to the sales associates and explain "The Jeep Wave" to them and ask for them to pass on the wave to all new owners of Jeeps.

Your Jeep Community Needs your Support!
New to forum, just weighing in. Maybe people see you wave, maybe they don't . I think jeep people should start a Jeep Beep. Just a friendly lil toot of the horn to say hey... great minds think alike and cool people drive jeeps. Kind of a brotherhood vehicle hand shake.

I hate to say this, but the only people who wave back at me are TJ owners... BUT I get a lot of TJ owners who wont wave back to me and I have a feeling its some JK hating... whatever, I've always wanted a Jeep and my local dealership gave me a deal for 2,500 under invoice so I couldn't pass on that. A dealership down the street wanted 1k less for a 1994 unlimited with 60k on it.

It should be written in a contract you have to sign at the dealership agreeing that when buying a jeep you must wave at other jeepers
