I live upstate and found that most people that don't wave are yuppies from the city in unlimited wranglers.

I have driven over 3k miles in the last few days. I wave to 90%.(Sorry At the 10% i missed i might of been distracted looking at the sights along the road.) anyways I would say about a third wave back. To the family in Alabama, ur sons enthusiastic waving made my day. Oh yeah Alabama waves more than the other states I drove through. I'll update more on this after I get home driving through more states up north.

I drive over 1 1/2 hr a day to and from work encountering many wranglers , I am not moded yet , however I wave 90 % of the time expecting nothing in return , just a friendly gesture to a fellow jeeper . when expectations run high disappointment is soon to follow , fostering the" I wave if they do", categorical wave, gender wave attitudes . Embrace the culture! When I had my 2010 SS camaro waving was out of the question at 85-90 mph most of time (with radar detector) . Im enjoying the slow down and wave life style now. most dont return the wave but oh well .

Update now that I'm home. On the total of 5k miles I drove I got 6 waves. The northern states really don't wave. Must be a bunch of unjeepucated peoe in the north. But I know I waved so I did my part

Driving down the road today, I pass a U-haul truck pulling a trailer with a black JKU on it.

I look in the cab of the U-haul and he's waving at me so of course I wave back.

I was totally surprised that in two days of driving in rural No Cali I saw more waves than the last 4 months driving between Reno and Carson City, NV...totally cool though for Cali!

Try Tahoe. Nobody waves in Tahoe. I find some waves when headed west to Placerville, CA.

I wave 90 percent of the time, and sometimes get waves back, I get so angry when I see girls who look at me like I'm tweaked out on meth or something every time I wave! Gotta love them massholes! 😸
Anywho, here's this for y'all!

Why do I see more Jeeps to wave at when I'm driving my wife's car than when I am driving my Jeep? Some strange inverse law of the universe?

My first day with my JKU, and not a single person waved. Made an effort to do so to make it a habit but not a single response. Here in Central Fl.

Back when I first got my TJ, there were plenty of CJ guys saying that they'll only wave to CJs because the square headlight guys don't drive "real" Jeeps and the TJ guys are, well, exactly like everyone is describing JK guys now. I guess I've been around long enough to see it come full circle.

the first day i got my tj i got beeped at by a jk it was great, my tj is stock (for now) but its my mail delivery/dd so sometimes when i wave i dont think people see it because im driving on the "right" side lol i hate when i dont get waved back at it makes me sad i also notice that its mostly older jeeps that wave and not the jk's and also the little punks in their modded jeeps i guess they think they are to good to wave back to me in my stockie

I try to give a wave every time, no matter the model (sometimes I miss...). My son (age 12) cracks up at me, asking "You really like that, don't you?" And I was like, "Yup! We're back in 'the club' now!" And he does it now with me.

As for those that don't wave or wave back, a lot of times I have noticed that the driver looks more like a soccer mom, or a weekend warrior. They look like anything BUT a Jeeper. I just think to myself, "give them time... They will come around!"
