I have one of the most expensive rubicons around metro detroit and I wave even to guys on the other side of the high way . It's a jk thing period. A lot of people driving jks these days are the same people who drive Cherokees. They don't know or get it. Has nothing to do with income level. Nice things cost money that's how it's is but I am a jeep can and love all jeeps not even just mods. I appreciate the dedicated stocker. Jeeps rock and every one who drives one should be proud enough to wave to the other guy!

I only wave now to Jeeps that have some type of offload enhancement. Although, I will ready the wave for every Jeep just in case they wave first.

since the OP has been not waved-at by other Rubicon owners, I will now wave at all Jeeps with both hands to make things right with the world.

13 JKUR here, I wave all the time. Most Jeep owners by me do not return the wave, although today I had a few wave back. A few days ago I considered switching to the one-finger wave

Shouldn't matter if your driving a Rubi, 4 door, 2 door, CJ, TJ, YJ, JK or whatever... Having a Jeep is a culture much like the Harley culture... Can't well all just get along? Lol!

I am going to get a decal for the top of my windshield that says "WAVE: It's a Jeep thing!"

What I love is when I am out and about and I get a wave from someone not driving a Jeep. I know that either A) they own a jeep and forgot what vehicle they were in for the day or B) They are previous Jeep owners or 3) I am on fire and they are trying to tell me to pull over.

LMAO!! I was driving my car yesterday, and waved at a Jeep, and the Dude gave me a pretty funny look. My Wife asked what I was doing, and I told her, "I forgot I wasnt in the Jeep....."

Yes us Rubi dudes do wave. I saw about 10 Jeeps today and only 4 waved. Its the chicks that dont wave. If the other guy has a mod, then they almost always are ready before I am with a quick wave.

I use to wave at the chicks, but I get strange looks and even seen a few as they passed adjust the rear view mirror as I went by. They seemed to be like "did I know that dude?"

I will say I have seen almost all motorcycles wave at each other no matter what they drive.

Since I got my trek armor seat covers done today I was very wave happy.

1. The unwritten code for the Jeep Wave is that the driver of the newer Jeep waves first.

2. I never wave at women driving a Jeep. Could be misinterpreted. My wife drives a JK. I don't want other guys waving at her but I would understand if they did because she is HOT!

3. A great number of JK drivers I see (Sport, Sahara, Rubes) are looking at their "smart" phones and would not know if you shot off a signal flare in their behalf.

4. I drive a 2012 JKUS and chuck a deuce at all Jeeps with one exception (see #2 above) even if my Jeep is newer than theirs.

5. I also have a 1978 Jeep CJ-7 so when I am driving it you wave first (see #1 above) unless your CJ or MB is older.

But I have noticed more people wave here in ME than they ever did in CO.

That's is the dumbest thing I have heard yet , a rubi not waving at another jeep because it is not a rubi

You cant tell a rubi from a sport unless you are right on top of it , so I have no idea how you can tell a rubi from a sport at 100yrds away

I've been Jeepless since last October after driving Jeeps since 97. I find myself waving at Jeeps even when I'm not in one.

We, as Rubicon owners, feel it is beneath us to wave at lesser Jeeps.

J/K...

Since I'm a Harley guy and a Jeep guy, my wife gets irritated that I seem to wave at everybody without even thinking about it. I certainly put out more waves than I get coming back. Eh, what can you do.

And Tom...my wife REALLY gets irritated since I ALWAYS seem to wave a women Jeepers...

If a jeeper doesn't wave it's almost always related to ignorance, inattentive Jeeping, or just that they are scouting for an offshoot to wheel!

Wait.. I thought JK owners don't wave. Or was it JKU owners who don't wave? I remember now, women in jku's don't wave. Or, it could have been in-modded jeeps are the ones who don't wave... I'm so confused.

JKUS and I wave at all of em. Some times I am pre occupied and miss the wave. Sometimes, I forget to wave because I'm admiring a mod that was done to the jeep. Sometimes I forget to wave because I admiring the MILF driving the jeep. That's about all.
