I'm new to the jeep community. I've always wanted one and finally got one a little over a month ago. Even before I got mine, I knew about the "wave". On the way home from the dealership, several waves. Now, I initiate the wave and get about half wave backs. I agree that JK owners are usually the ones that don't wave back. I'm a JK owner and I WILL wave back.

In the 80's I had a CJ and the wave was pretty standard, not too many yuppie jeepers back then but it was common to see the pointing finger raised first followed by the middle finger while the hand remained on the wheel, if the doors were off then the same wave out the side.

I have had my top off since Friday and I noticed the waves have changed (more enthusiastic)!!!

By the way, I drive a 2D JK and I am a 41 year old female. I give and get waves from all different people.

Today, got a peace out the door from a sweet TJ!!!!!!!

It seems to me that people tend to wave more often and with more gusto when the weather is good.

Yesterday was pretty cool for me, wave-wise. I was on the road for the first time with my new wheels and tires and not only did I get waves from every Wrangler that I went past, all but one of them waved first (even the JKUs).

I get waves from mostly the cjs,yjs, and tjs but rarely the JKs(unless they are modified) but it's mainly older folks where I live and they drive most of the JKs the younger crowd always wave and I never get waves in my moms JKU even when I wave.

People don't wave much out here in Orange County CA. I wave at every single Wrangler on the road; and any 4x4 with a hot lady driving it. I miss living in west Texas; everyone always waves.

Jeepers on the beach are a weird bunch. Don't worry when I finally get mine I'll be waving.

I've been impressed so far with wavers in OC. Today I was waiting in a left turn pocket and a JK came behind me and beeped his horn so we could exchange waves.

New JKU owner and I try to wave at all the Jeeps I see. Sometimes I just cant depending on traffic and what not.

Whats the wave protocol for passing another jeep or one that is passing you?

Just looking forward to some sunshine hear to enjoy no top. Last four days have been nothing but rain, rain, rain.

I'm a red TJ and I was just passing another red TJ and waved a full hand wave because I was excited and he just looked at me like why are you waving at me? Because we both drive bright red TJs!!!!

I drive 8 minutes to work every day. And I pass the same three jeeps, 2 of them we wave everyday, the third one I just gave up.

I drive a TJ now, and looking at a new JK, (head gasket), and worried that no one will wave to me anymore. Very few JK's wave back.

Why don't Rubi owners wave?

I notice about 75% of sport owners wave and about 15% of Rubi owners.

Is it the wrangler that causes them to feel more special or is it their income level, which led to the rubi, that also makes them feel more special?

Interesting topic.

It's because our parents handed us everything in life and never taught us manners.

Lot of women drive Saharas. The Jeep crowd has watered down from what I see.

I find out here on Long Island it's everyone that doesn't have a lifted jk. People with tj or yj wave. It's usually some busniess guy or a soccer mom that doesn't driving a 4 door

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!
