Is the wave dead??

I'm finding that less and less wrangler drivers are sharing a friendly wave when encountered on the road. I've been driving my wrangler for about 12 years now and when I first started in the wrangler life it seemed everyone gave that wave as they passed by. I hate seeing the times change.

We have figured out that around here there are too many damn soccer moms driving unlimiteds and they NEVER wave (most have scowls written across their faces), so we stopped trying all together. The modified jeeps and older jeeps almost always wave though!

Some people up here do wave, but I gotta agree with TexasJeepGirl on the older/modded jeeps are the only ones who do... But like any wave, maybe the water is just calm for the moment

I've had a few guys in modded TJ's and JK's not wave back at me, and my TJ is no where near stock. Guess it just depends on the area you live in

I propose we follow those who do not wave and educate them on it when they next stop somewhere.

Some days are better than others. One day i was 6/6. Next day 0/5. Weird!
I have noticed same thing though, lots more soccer mom types in jks never wave back. Just pissed off look, which is most likely there all day anyways haha.

I quit waving after reading all the nonsense and JK-bias in wave threads...
Mo bass, I'm right down the road from you, in Marshfield. Considering playing hooky for the rest of the day and putting a kayak in the river after all this rain!

I get more waves from JKs than I do any other Wrangler. Maybe your local JK drivers just don't like you!

I wave when I can, sometimes I miss it. But, hey, guess what... sometimes there are more important things to pay attention while to than making sure to wave. Maybe that just makes me one of those scowl faced soccer moms driving an unlimited, but I promise you I don't ignore you to ruin your day.

People need to relax about the wave. I wave all the time, I probably couldn't tell you how many people did or didn't respond, because it simply isn't that important.

No

People like to take that way too seriously. There's already enough judgmental attitudes floating around without passing something out that just gives people permission to look down on other jeepers.

I had a chromed up H2 throw up the wave last weekend. I was too surprised to even process a reply until he was a speck in the mirror.
