Pretty sure they'd wave back at you regardless of what you were driving

Ha. Nothing too out of the ordinary here. You clearly need to change the finger your waving with!! Not sure what to say about your wife's experience. Maybe stop waving with her leg?

Dude, you're in Miami. That's a whole other country down there. Drive up north a bit, we'll all wave back at you. I've only been back in FL for a few weeks now and I have to say, it's great to be back among Jeepers who wave.

Whats up with the wave?

Been driving my TJ for about three weeks and started to notice, everybody in a wrangler waves at me! Kinda cool I feel like I'm in a special club now! Lol the first couple of times I just didn't think about it, and was confused thinking "was that somebody I know" lol

It is something that makes ya feel good on the inside. I know the mods have an official wave thread too, I think they like to keep all wave related posts under one thread.

I can confirm everything you're saying! I live in south beach and jeeps are all over the place. I have owned since May 2012 and still not one wave! I have up in trying for same reasons you mention. It's a love hate relationship living here! Meet lots of nice people in my building and in my business but out and about, don't even think of crossing the street when a vehicle is coming. They don't think pedestrians have the right of way! And it's ok to U turn where ever you want! Left turns from right lane are the norm! And yellow light means speed up and honk at all the pedestrians in your way!

I waved tonight at a jeep going the other way in the farthest lane from me. I would like to think they waved back even though it was pitch black outside...its habit. and i get bummed/miffed if i don't get a wave in return.

You beat me to it. I get pretty funny looks when I swing wide with a 53 foot trailer to make a turn and the vehicle at the white line is a jeep and I am waving like an idiot. Lol.

Have y'all noticed that many new JK owners, especially those 4 doors, don't wave?

I have noticed that. I'm a JKUR owner and wave at everyone in any type of wrangler. And have noticed that a lot of JK embarrass us. Wave!

I ride a motorcycle. I wave at everyone on 2 wheels (except scooters) :-P

Yes I did notice at. I also noticed I didn't get as many waves when my TJ was stock. The more parts I add and the higher it gets the more waves I get.

I can remember back to the 60's and Jeepers waving to my dad in his cj and him telling me to wave and teaching me to ride with my foot on the door sill when the doors are off just like my kids do today.
