I absolutely LOVE running around naked... however when its 115+ that tends to get a little warm when you are having to drive in town... When the summer finally takes a hike you can bet your happy ass I'll be strippin to nothin but my runnin shoes!

If the deal they threw at me wasn't as awesome as it was I would have just walked away..........

When I was entertaining the idea of trading in my truck, I went to the local dealership and found myself educating the sales guy who had been there for all of a month. I was telling him things about the Wranglers which is made far more pathetic by the fact that I honestly knew very little at the time. As you might expect, I bought my Jeep at a different dealership.

That's funny. I had a dealer tell me that an FJ Cruiser is the same thing as a Wrangler. They're similar, not the same.

By similar they both have off road capabilities. I've gone out on the trails with a few FJs and they handle pretty well. But as was stated above, they are not easy to modify and do not have one of the most important features, the ability to run naked.

then can be modded to run naked if you have a Sawz-all but it's tough to put the top back on

How about someone holds a contest:
"Get spotted waving to another Jeep and win a free spa day!"
If we put up notices at soccer fields and PTA meetings maybe we can get the soccer moms waving?

It's a disappointing thing to say being a woman myself but a lot of the waves that don't get returned from older models and modded models (where you'd expect a wave most) around here seem to have women driving them. The new ones I'll wave at if I see the driver looking my way because then they're obviously a) not going to miss my wave and b) interested in jeeps in some way, whether their own is stock or not. I don't mind that the

Haha, my bad! I don't mind that the newer JKs don't wave (when they don't) because they just don't get it. It just makes me sad drivers (and like I mentioned, it seems to mostly be women who aren't waving in this area) who have older models or ones outfitted for offroading not carrying on the tradition. It's one of the great things about having a jeep!

Jeep Wave Thread #MMCCXVII

After giving this topic much thought (and experience with others waving/ not waving) I have come up with etiquette rules for myself.

1. Always return a wave regardless of vehicle type. This is just good manners! I have lived in several locals where waving to an oncoming vehicle was standard and has nothing to do with Jeeps

2. No longer wave at JKU's that are bone stock. Sorry guys, experience has just shown that those drivers are oblivious to it all.

To me, the wave is a way to be friendly to those who may be out on the trail with you, and who may be in position to either help you out or not! I don't see it as a club of people who have the same badge on their vehicle.

I would add that when driving around in my naked Jeep, and meet up another naked Jeep, the wave seems way more enthusiastic... more like a Drive-By hug.

bone stock can still off-road and still assist. Maybe I will just snub you if I see you stuck in the trail and need help! I will just be oblivious to your needs! :P

Don't wave or wave to whoever you want. No need to make silly justifications.

This. I don't even watch for a return wave half the time, but it's hardly an imposition to wave in the first place.
