Education of the new Jeepers

(I think this should go here)

I'm sure all of you have noticed the lack of "the wave" from many new JK owners, (not saying that all JK owners are like that, just the majority)

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!

I've had my JK for 5 months and I didn't know any jeepers before then. The dealership didn't tell me about the wave, girlfriend did. Waving is automatic now, but I only get a wave back about half the time regardless of what model they're driving. Funny thing is, twice I've missed a fellow Jeep and was honked at to get my attention. That's fine too

I think I'll go by my town school admin office and thank them for all the school bus drivers waving at me, when I drive by

I don't know, maybe thats because my jeep jk is YELLOW, or

Could be just because it's a jeep, none of the NON-JK JEEPERS wave back !!!

I thought everyone was honking at me and waving and flashing there lights because they liked my jeep.

Turns out I was driving the wrong way onto the highway.

Nobody told me either,when someone waves to me or says hello I acknowledge the courtesty. But when I noticed all the Jeeps waving, I figured it out pretty quick what it was about.

I figure most of the JK drivers are too young to get the idea. I've also noticed that women don't wave like men do...but you'll know if I'm coming...I'll wave.

i brought my 09 a little over a year ago.
i knew about the wave, because i researched jeeps before i brought on.

just like when i brought my vette, i knew about the wave well before hand.


lots of people, in both new and older jeeps, don't always wave.

It was pretty much the same thing for me when I got my jeep back in 1999.

I wave at all jeeps, as long as i see them. I actually got true jeep wave back from a mom the other day. Both of us had out tops off (jeep tops, unfortunately), i was at the red light and she was turning so i stuck my arm up and she stuck her whole arm out the window and yell "WOOOOO!!!!"

I was so excited

Living in the city of Boston I rarely get a wave back. I think this should be something written in the owners manual but I am not sure many read that anyway.

I guess I'm a snob, or socially awkward. I didn't like the wave when I drove my '73 beetle either, everyone in a beetle would wave... but I'm cordial and try to return the wave, can't admit to initiating though... I have a YJ and a JK, def. notice more waves from non-JK drivers.

I just picked my 2010 JK up on monday. The next morning on the way to work a guy passed me in a TJ and waved. I didn't. Then a few minutes later a lifted JK unlimited passed me and waved, too. This time I figured it wasn't a coincedence so I waved back. Been waving since. Still, only about 50% of the jeepers I pass wave back, but that's a heck of a lot better than when I had a Land Rover, lol!

How sad is this? I wave everytime and just assume I won't get a wave back. That way, I won't get disapointed when they snub me. Yes, I too get shocked when a JK owner waves.

Funny thing, every time my wife is driving my Jeep, she gets a wave 90% of the time or better.

It's best when you have the top down and you have your passengers stand up and go crazy for the other Jeeps! Not safe at all at 50mph but hey, thats what we Jeepers do best!

Used to drive a big truck around and they all waved, especially when I was out in the county, far from civilization... Now that I've got the Jeep, I think about waving but it's usually when I'm trying to shift gears and by the time I get that done, they're long gone. I'm working on it though!

Oh, you also need to wave if you are trailering your jeep

Thats the best wave! Guy was driving a big nice duramax and had a TJ on the back with had to of been 42+ size tires and all kinds of crawling goodies. Got the wave My Jeep isnt stock though. Ive noticed the stocker the jeep, the less likely the wave sadly :/

Oh, and Ive had numerous waves that have happened on large freeways (across the median) and wide 2 lane high ways that have a 30+ foot grassy median. Still get the wave!
