I saw my first Solar Yellow TJ today since buying mine. Plus, there was a blue JK in the same parking lot. That got me thinking about how many do I see a day. I'm in Metro Detroit, it would be too much like work to count the JKU's they are well into the double digits. From there it's a few JK's, one or 2 TJ's and usually not many older than that.
2014 JKR Granite Crystal, 5.13 Auto: RK X Factor 2.5 Inch Lift, Artec Front and Rear Truss, Artec Rear LCA Mounts/Skids, Poison Spyder HD Crossmember, Rock Hard Gas/TC/Evap/Oil Skids, Rough Country Front & Rear Diff Sliders, Nitto Trail Grapplers 37x12.5x17, Pro Comp 97 Series Wheels, Synergy Weld On Rear Trackbar Bracket.
I see a lot of JKs on my way to and from work and only a couple of TJs and one particularly nice yellow YJ!

I'm a new Jeep owner. But I've always been a fan of them, so I noticed them quite often. Since becoming an owner though, I seem to notice them EVERYHERE. The shape is so easily recognizable, it's hard NOT to pick them out. Now I find myself looking for the modifications they did as they or I go by...One day in particular while driving on RT 17(NY) up towards our hunting property we noticed 17 jeeps in total. 12 of them were yellow!! I thought we had a rare color, lol.
As far as the whole wave thing..I've owned a Harley for most of my life. At first I was into the HD wave, then I rebelled against it, figuring it was a newb thing. I have waved at a few Jeeps, don't get much in return, except one nicely modded JK I see around quite often. I'm sure I'll bump into him eventually and meet him. Then we can stop waving at each other, lol.....
Here in central Ma i see between 10-15 per day on my commute (2dr and 4dr combined)
This past Saturday went over to Vineyard Haven on the Island man thought i was seeing things Wranglers everywhere! Atleast 6 commando green JK's and JKU's, 2 Blue JKU Sahara's, 2 Ruby Red JK's, 3 Blacks. All where within walking distance of the Ferry and main st. My daughter's like dad there's another and another.
I see one usually every 5 minutes or so when I'm driving, here in NJ. I would say the vast majority of the ones I see wave back. Maybe 1 out of 10 doesn't reciprocate? Except this one lady in a yellow YJ. I have never gotten a wave back from her, and I see her at least once a week driving around. It is my mission to get her to wave to me.
Here in south orange county (CA), the JKU's are everywhere, not many 2 door.
As for the wave, I have to be honest, I don't always wave, just because I day dream and don't notice them until it's too late... I guess it's an age thing... I'm getting too old.. But I do like it when they wave back, which is rare...
Living in the Los Angeles area I see more than I'd want to count. Of those I can count the jeep waves in one hand with fingers to spare.
I live down here in Orange County and I see tons; since I live within miles of a couple of Jeep dealers. Mostly soccer moms in the Saharas, bunch of older guys in Rubicons, young college girls in the Sports. All stock of course, never been dirty. There should be a crop of used 12's and 13's in 2018 in great shape.
Not to many waves down here either. Off Road Evolution is close by too, lots of moded rigs running around; both used and unused.
