If I notice them looking at me while I am looking at them, I will usually wave. Yesterday, sitting at a light, I was looking at a Sahara in my side view and the driver saw me and waved first. But, if they're doing their own thing, I don't worry about it.

I'm relatively new to the Jeep cult, but I quickly learned the "wave" as we have a lot of good friendly folk here. so far no gun waves

I used to spend a lot of time in that area, the company I worked for did work for Bosch. Spent a lot of nights in the comfort suits off red arrow highway by the I94 exit.

I enjoyed that area of Michigan ! From St. Joseph all the way north to the silver lake sand dunes.

You can wave at other Jeep models. Only if the look to be used off road or are built.

I see a lot of rice burners with stickers of the shocker on their civics. So i take it as some douchebaggery to stay away from. Its the same cars with bigger tow hooks than most of our jeeps.

I don't think those are tow hooks. Aren't they some kind of hook for drag racing timers? Which is two things that shouldn't be in the same sentence, Civic and drag racing. I got surrounded by a pack of them on the way to a trail once. It sounded like lawnmowers or weed whackers swarming around me, with those stupid exhausts they put on those things.

Was at my nephews high school graduation yesterday and the traffic leaving the stadium was insane; luckily a black JK let me cut him in line and after waiting 10 minutes and no one letting me in the exit lane, I was finally able to leave. So whoever you are Black JK with the red shocks and the missing rear tire... Thanks bro!

I'm stock cause I can't afford the upgrades. Wheels, tires, lift, bumpers, winch, sliders... each one is going to take a long time saving for. But I wave! I get what you're saying though. If every jk with their driver holding a phone to their ear and looking anywhere but at the road equated to a wave there wouldn't be any of these wave threads

I always try and make sure I give the jeep wave! I will fully admit though, sometimes I don't even notice that I was waved at, and feel like a complete jerk afterwards! But vice versa, if I'm not waved back at, I instantly think they are jerks! Haha 😏

This is good knowledge for me. I had no idea. I have a new JK and will try to remember the wave. Don't wanna make people think snobs are the only ones buying them.

I had a TJ and just got a JK. Forgot all about the jeep wave until another JK owner waved at me the other day. As a former sportbike only commuter I find it fun to be waving at random people in similar vehicles again.

I try and wait until the last minute to see if they will wave first so I don't look like an idiot who thinks mistakenly that I know them. My general rule is that the stockers usually don't wave- the modded (especially older) Jeepers do more often.

brookfield chrysler/dodge/jeep in benton harbor, mi. They used to be in watervliet, MI and the location used to be a ford dealership for many years.

The jeep was also kind of off roaded to hell anyway, wasn't a brand new one that was gonna get "OMG YOU SCRATCHED IT"..

We bought our first Jeep, an '08 JKUR, two months ago. Aisle from the 33" tires and new CB/fireStik, it is stock. We get the whole family waving like a pack of caffeinated squirrels at every Wrangler we see. We either gets waves and big smiles or the deer in the headlight look.

I am occasionally surprised at the waves I get. Recently, I saw someone driving a JKUS and chatting on the phone. I waved not expecting it to be returned. The driver went out of their way to let go of the wheel with their right hand and reach across their body to lean out the window and wave. Thankfully, the didn't wreck after executing this move.

On the way home today, an older guy in a YJ gave me the two finger over the sterring wheel wave with a side to side waggle of his hand. That is the first time I've seen that method.

I had a guy reach down out the doorless side of his heavily modded and lifted jeep and give me, a lowly 'stocker', the 2 finger peace sign as we passed. I thought that was a pretty good one.

I was just driving home from getting my Jeep and got wave after wave from other Jeep owners - I even got a fist pump from one guy. I felt welcomed to the brotherhood!

I sold a '75 CJ5 back in 2005 after my second son was born. We got a '93 YJ 2 weeks ago. He's almost 8 and today learned about the Jeep wave. Sure feels good to be back in the brotherhood.
