Arrow Offical Wrangler Forum Jeep Wave Thread

Not sure if this is just a North Carolina thing..(most likely NOT!) but theres def. this unspoken Jeep Wave.. so i was just wondering what your wave consisted of?

Mine is slinging my arm out the side of the Jeep in an upward angle..gets there attention





Edit: Moderator's note. In December 2013 one of our forum members created this video

I only wave at lifted Jeeps or return a wave if initiated by stock Jeeps. When I lived in WI Wranglers weren't that common and I waved at everyone and they returned the wave. Here in NC everyone and their grandmother has one so I don't bother waving at stock Jeeps because they all end up with that confused look. I also wave at any other vehicle that obviously sees off road duties.

It's an off road thing, not a Jeep thing.

Yah def agree there..I don't give stock Jeeps the wave either unless they initiate it... as for other vehicles..I only really wave at other Jeeps..i.e cherokees that are lifted cause lifted trucks around here don't impress me at all..everyone and there brother has one lifted and they all seem to be really good at getting them stuck too..and it doesnt take much to spin the tires and throw a little mud on it...I'm going to keep it a Jeep thing..

Ive noticed only people with modded Jeeps wave. Sometimes I left a finger on the wheel that way when they dont wave back (and 90% dont around here) its not such a bummer. And I only wave at Tjs and Yjs

i think the general wave here in GA, at least south GA is just to lift your hand off the steering wheel be flexing your wrist upward and picking up your pointer and birdie finger. thats just for some reason how everyone i know waves at other people when ridin down the road. when i'm in town i wave at all the jeeps i see. but when i'm in the country you dont see a car all that often so we kinda wave at everyone.

over here some people wave and most dont. There are many modded wranglers that DONT WAVE. I gues they think of me as competition and look at me pissed off. Chicago's ignorant people make me sick.

I'd say that about 98% of the Wranglers around my parts wave, 1% are just not paying attn. to wave, and the other 1% are too busy "being awesome" to care. Buy most of the Jeeps here wave. And for me, it's my left hand/arm out the window, rain or shine.

90% of the JK's around here look at you funny when you wave. other tj owners wave back but there are a few that don't. its still no reason to not wave at a stock jeep, eventually they might catch on. as for my wave the i just lift the pointer and middle finger off the steering wheel.

I'm not a prude or anything I just don't go out of my way to wave at a stock Jeep..that is usually a sign that they didnt buy there jeep for the same reasons i did..but if they wave I wave back...

i was reading the point system....

I get points...

Just wanted to point out that i had BOTH kids ib the back and forced the wife to keep her window open along with mine despite the whining from the back that there was to much wind and when that didnt work the girl resorted to saying she was cold...which i gave her a sweatshirt to cover up and the boy heckled

I am in a small town and everybody waves at everybody else but when I am going down the road out of town I just kind of throw up a hand unless they wave first then I stick my arm straight up if the top is off.

I just got a wave from another TJ as I was driving up the main drag at Topsail Island. We both had top off and no doors. The wave was full arm out where the door would be normally. No matter what the state of the Jeep I wave. Got a wave from a Willy's yesterday as I came over the bridge. Made my day since he beat me to the wave

Lemme see...I don't have a lift but I do have grill guard,rock rails,tinted windows,stickers and P235 Bridgestone AT Dueller tires on mine.

So you wouldn't wave at me????-----

If I wave at you and you don't wave back- I'm making a u-turn and hunting you down for a good old fashion---

Lol..Oh you'd get the wave..I was referring to that fact that allot of people especially around North carolina ..theres just tons of jeeps..everybody owns one..and allot of people with the stock jeeps dont understand the wave..soo with that being said and being really tired of getting a dumb look when i wave at another jeep..i usually only wave at jeeps that are jacked up or actually look like there set up for something other then running to the grocery store.. but if you're really feeling left out..then maybe you should put a lift on it.. and as for the woopin..I highly doubt that you'd do something like that but you def made things entertaining...

NOPE! I'll never ticket a Jeep. Hell, if I could have a YJ Police Interceptor I would!

And I hate when a Jeeper doesn't wave back...it doesn't bother me with stockers, because alot of people have them as DDs, but if it's modded and they don't wave, I really wanna follow them to their destination and beat the hell outta them

my point exactly, for a few years i didn't have a lift or any after market parts but i would still wave. a jeep owner is a jeep owner whether he has a stock jeep or not, non reason not to wave. if they don't wave back who cares.
