I flipped off a dude in a wrangler today because it made me feel good and I wanted to share the love of jeep ownership. I figured from know on instead of waving I am going to flip wranglers off. Kind of an adventure rider type thing. You ever see the stickers FYYFF well adventure motorcyclist display these and if you spot one you flip them off, kind of an acknowledgement of the free living lifestyle we all share.

It's difficult seeing every JKU/TJ etc and waving. I know sometimes I see a guy waving but by the time I can react he's past me. Lot's of things preclude the wave at times. Traffic workload, mental multi tasking, reaching for something, not feeling well, there's dozens of things that might prevent someone from waving back.

If I see a Wrangler in time I always wave but sometimes don't look to see if they wave back. It's almost an automatic response. If I have time I look to see whether they're a man or a woman. From my experience around here 9.9 out of 10 women will not wave, so I usually don't try because they're always looking somewhere else. With guys it's different. The vast majority of guys around here wave.

Not dead, I do try wave when I notice a Jeep but as many people have said sometimes you realize too late.

I like this idea! Where I used to work we all drove around quite a bit, and used to "get" each other w/ the one finger wave. It was really good when you would flip someone off and they would be waving at you, hilarious.

Maybe this isn't such a good idea.

In my hometown EVERYONE waves, even soccer moms in their stock JKU's. Here in the big city I only see it once & awhile.

Has nothing to do with being tough it has everything with living/loving the adventurer lifestyle with fellow dudes and dudettes. You got to have a sense of humor if you want to sport a FYYFF.

that has always been the problem with the key board there is no way to relay the true intent of a post lol.
