A new and different perspective---well for me anyway.

For those of you who may not know--I have an '04 TJ not a total off road beast, but obviously not stock, and I get waves usually from MOST jeeps. It has been that way since I got it in '04 when it was bone stock.

I recently purchased a '12 JK Sport, (for her) we took a road/ shopping trip yesterday about 200 miles round trip. I felt like a "redheaded step child". Very few waves, even when I initiated the wave, and the only ones returned were by fellow JKs.

Just kinda makes me wonder WTF!??

And to make things worse, she is trying to figure out, when driving by herself, when to wave---I told her if it is a Jeep ----- wave. We can sort out Liberty Cherokee or whatever later. I will give her credit though she has said that "some of them are just rude".

Yeah bud. The new ink is on it's way. And as we discussed on the phone the other day, I will be testing it on my wife's cover before I put it on yours. We also discussed how I was building the setup to do these covers so we knew it would take some time. I appreciate your patience my friend.

Here in MD at least where i live its kinda hit and miss. I am a JK owner and i wave most of the time and get waves back. Actually when i bought my JK, my sales guy told me that if he saw me on the road, he would expect a wave back.

There is a steady decline in jeep waves. No offense to JK owners or soccer moms, but what it means to own and truly drive a jeep is lost on many these days. I will continue to give the acknowledgement and hope they pick up on it.

Do we still have to wave to a Jeep owner that had their Jeep painted pink?

my rules of waving are not affected by color so more or less depends on the Jeep as dirrected by the rules I follow and of course if they wave first then it's automatic wave return if I see the wave

I wave to all Jeeps that I see. I would say that I get a wave back about 75% of the time. Sometimes they wave out of instinct and then stare at me to see if they know me. I just smile and keep waving.

Are you supposed to wave at some one towing a jeep on a trailer?

I wave to everyone, but I am sad to report that since trading in my '05 X, which was lifted and dirty, for my '12 JKUR almost no one is waving back. I attribute some of that to the fact that all the tourist Jeeps in Hawaii are JKUs (and they never wave back) so people don't even bother waving at JKs now. I get that, but I am obviously initiating the wave and it still rarely gets returned. Of course, some of that may be that I actually have my doors on now, so people aren't seeing my arm fully extended in a shaka anymore. I'm sure after a few mods people will consider it a "real" Jeep again and start returning the wave.

I've decided to enjoy the novelty of a clean interior for a little while this time, at least for the next month or so until I deploy. When I get back all bets are off, and so are the doors and roof .

Maybe. Having moved to a JKU from a modded JK where the waves were abundant and not anymore, it's more the non JK/JKU people who don't know what it's like to be a Jeeper anymore. So thanks for waving at JKUs. Some of us wave too.

Absolutely.... they feel all 'entitled' because they have those two extra doors and more storage room.

When I had my old CJ5's I used to see this little import car every morning on the back roads going the opposite direction.

I tried the "Jeep Wave" on that car every morning. Took a few weeks but the driver started waving back every single morning.

As the weeks, and months, progressed the little hat and gloves covered frowny face behind the wheel turned into this gorgeous little blonde who would smile ear to ear and wave enthusiastically.

Never knew what happened to her but I wonder sometimes if she smiles on her way to work every morning in her Jeep smiling and waving at people.

"better to give than receive"

Chuck the attitudes and wave freely.

Just my opinion on the "Jeep Wave".

i wave at every wrangler i drive by and laugh at any other jeep! stock jeeps deserve some lovin too! (even though my jeep eats stock jeeps for breakfast). i love the jeep wave! im from CT and mostly get a "peace". just two fingers lifted off the steering wheel.

i also want to add.. sometimes when my friends give me rides or im driving another car, i wave at wranglers still and laugh at myself after i realize im not even in a jeep.. haha!

I did a little funny today I waved at a Jeep but wasnt in my jeep. I was driving me and my dads beater car 95 buck park avenue with 59k on the clock! She may not be worth much to look at but rides nice and has a nice interior and 30mpg! Anywho the yellow TJ driver just looked at me we were passing each other slow enough for him to give me the wtf look ha

or maybe they just recently bought their Jeep and haven't actually been able to start their build yet?
