I wave at all Jeep Wranglers stock or amped up...you took the gamble to buy one and hopefully if we make these newbies realize they own a piece of Americana they'll even go beyond those sheitty stock wheels and put some money in that monster..

I always do the two finger wave, today I got back a one finger point wave, off his steering wheel. I'll take it...

Here in San Antonio I wave at all Jeeps, because I was a newb with a stock Jeep and Jeepers were so kind to wave. I think there is a thing going on down here where Jeepers throw the finger at H3's and FJ's. I gotten 5 fingers, so to this day I return the favor every time I see an H3 or FJ "Fake Jeep", and about 70% I get a one right back

I gave up waving at JKU's, no matter how high it's lifted it's always a mom drive her kids to soccer where I live. Now I only "wave" at 2 door wranglers, and it seems only tj's and older wave back

Is it bad to wave from a new 2012 Grand Cherokee? Just got one and I started waving to Wranglers and other Cherokees.

PS: I always wave from my TJ and LJ

Nope.. Keep on waving... if people notice they should respond as long as there not Dbag haters.. Just remember don't expect people to initate to you.. The post WJ grands didn't really have much effect on the "I get it" market

Here in Mass/Rhode Island almost everyone waves or gives the peace sign. I do the latter...and I drive a stock Jeep. It's my 5th Jeep. I love them, it's just not in the budget to do anything fun to it (except put stickers on it).

Another visit to PA over the weekend and on the way down I had a guy pass me and lean over to make sure he waved and it TOTALLY made my day. Ran into traffic and there was a ton of jeeps and we were all waving! On the way back yesterday... no waves... I kept waving anyway....

i wave at all wranglers, modified or not, old or new. doesnt matter to me. i think its stupid when people get into the hierarchy and think some jeeps dont deserve a wave. a jeep is a jeep, and theyre all hot if you ask me. i saw a guy that said he doesnt wave to anyone except jk's because he "doesnt want to interrupt them delivering the mail" -prick

On my way to work today (3rd day driving a Jeep) I had 4 out of 5 Jeep drivers wave to me! Just trying to get used to the wave myself after 37 years of no waving!

It's like a cult thing...much like the Branch Davidians without the FBI, Swat Teams and large tanks busting down our doors...I wave everyday..

Finally - the lady in the 2012 4door JK I have been giving the wave to twice a day, every day for the last month and a half got it and threw a wave back. I was still grinning from the red TJ that had just passed and initiated the wave when I saw her coming... I thought here comes the buzz-kill but, someone must have enlightened her.
Most of the 4door drivers in my particular neck of the woods are still clueless about what they are driving but, there is hope. I have seen it.

The Jeep Wave -- Definitive Guide

The Jeep Wave

Wow that's complicated... I'm gonna need an app to keep score.

I didn't understand the requirements when I bought my Jeep this week.

I previously owned a Dodge Challenger and I'd get all sorts of people honking and giving me the thumbs up to which I'd sheepishly wave and rev the engine and light up the tires... but in the past 3 days I've had all these people I didn't know giving me a polite head nod or casual shift of the hand and I thought they were mistaking me for someone else.

Who'da'thunk'it.

A majority of stock JKU are "soccer moms" that drive them where i live and I dont even bother to wave, and there's even a fair amount of older models that wont wave back at me! I'm starting to lose hope...

I drive a stock JKUR. At first hardly anybody would wave back but I live in a very small city. I see the same 40 wranglers everyweek and they see me. I drive with the doors off every day that its not raining. Well now a month later, I get about 39 out of 40 waves!!!!!
Guess they learned
