The Jeep wave is over rated. Esepcially when it is justified with an "if". If it's lifted, if it's a TJ, if it's driven by this person or that. Blah, blah, blah.

If the Jeeping community was actually what it puts itself out there to be (a bunch of people who like to drive Jeeps) without qulifying an individuals existence within that group with an "if" then I would wave. Until then I will continue to enjoy my Jeep and everything that it is capable of doing.

My personal favorites are the guys in JKs who have one hand at 12 o'clock, a phone up to their face, and are leaning all the way over the center console. I never get a wave out of those guys.

It's a Jeep, not a ricer.

I never thought of the possibility that I wasn't getting a return wave may be because my Jeep isn't "good enough". All of my passengers or anyone who drives my Jeep even waves and they don't even own it haha. No matter, I will continue to wave at everyone because it makes me happy! I will just never understand the discrimination. And I vow to continue to wave at the silver Jeep I pass every morning until she finally breaks and waves back.
She'll come around eventually... i got a Jeep to wave to me finally after daily waving after about a month or so... i had the biggest grin afterwards.

I'm supporting the "Jeep Wrangler Community" that actually off-roads. I couldn't care less about the "Jeep Wrangler Community" that doesn't off-road.





I don't look down on any vehicle owners. Not even Hummer owners.





You are way too emotional about this Jeep wave business.





Sorry but Jeep Wranglers that never see dirt are not awesome. If I wanted an awesome on-road vehicle, a Jeep Wrangler wouldn't even be a consideration.





Give it a try. Don't discriminate.

Love the last sentence. Rambles on about his own dicriminations and then tell someone else not to discriminate. Pretty much goes back to my other statement on qualifying Jeep ownership with an "if"

So, because it is a Jeep, the guy should change the way he is a comfortable driving? Or not take a phone call? My guess is you don't get a wave because they didn't see you

I do find the JK crowd are very stingy with the wave unless it's lifted. Most are soccer moms and suit/tie guys that are clueless about the wave.

I drive a jku. I offroad. I'm not a soccer mom and I don't wear suit and tie. I don't know why the people in your area are not waving back. But I can tell you I wave at every jeep I see. Maybe part of the problem is there are more Jeeps being sold than ever before and people just aren't being informed of the cuture( likely). Or maybe the people who don't wave back are just a$$holes( possible)? Sometimes the other person just may not have seen you (probable).Will probably never know unless you track one down and ask them why they did not wave back.

I do wear a suit. I wore a suit in my TJ too. I've always waved. Usually I find its the people who aren't stock jeeps that wave back. BUT, I wave to everyone from my 13 JK, wearing a suit. And yes, I off road too.

Have you ever seen someone lean practically into the passenger's seat and not look or drive like a douchebag?

Didn't want you to think that I thought people who wear suits don't wave. Just trying to make the point that all types drive Jeeps

Well I fell kinda left out, I've had my JKU for over a month now and I've never been waved to; except for one of these here on the forum. I guess I'll have to be the one to start the trend on the road.

Maybe his phone is charging and that's the only position he can talk because the cord is too flippin' short.

I lean on my console quite often when I drive. Maybe I look like a douche to you. I'm comfortable.

Doesn't mean he saw you. I wave at every Jeep I notice. I know I miss some. The ones that don't wave back are usually not looking in my direction. I don't fault them for watching the road. I don't even fault them if they are paying more attention to their radio

I agree many times I wave and the person didn't' see me. I don't get upset. That would be like getting upset when calling someone and keep getting a busy signal. Person you''re calling doesn't even know .

A lot of yuppies in the city type areas hardly wave. Out by me in the rural country scene I get waves from nearly everyone.

Getting a nice solid jeep wave inspires me to continue fixing up my jeep.

STICKER TIME!!! Straight across the windshield, hot pink letters; IT'S A JK & IT JUST WAIVED @ U!!! So fed up!! Absolute last 4 days of incredible weather in Ft. Campbell, front doors off, radio up ... No waive back ... I drop from 2 finger waive to a 1 finger gesture!!! I'm thinking about a hot pink finger on the back glass bc only the ones who don't waive look back, so just in case they missed it the first time!!!

I drive a new JK, I wore a suit to work for two years straight, and I recently did a 1000+ miles in a day and a half where I waved to almost every Jeep I saw (50+ ). The two Jeeps that caught me when I was unable to wave (in the Arizona canyons between St George Utah and Nevada) didn't wave either but I think we were all concentrating on the road.

Of the Jeeps that I waived to though, relatively few waived back. However, I think that every TJ I saw waived back .
