Share your Jeep wave story!

It's silly I know but I got my first Jeep wave today. I was so excited I was literally jumping up and down in my seat. Thank you hot blue Jeep guy for waving at me, eventho I own a JK and a stock one at that. You made this Jeep wannabee girl very happy.

My soap box.

A Wrangler is a Wrangler. Modified, lifted, pimped out, tricked out, clean, dirty, rusted or just plain vanilla. Don't be a snob about it. Make someone's day and F'ing wave.

Funny story time!

The first time the BF got a Jeep no one told him about the Jeep wave. So there he was driving and a very attractive woman in a Jeep waves. He is shocked and isn't sure what to do.

His thoughts:

Do I know her? No, I don't know her. did she think I was hot and wanted my attention? Should I turn around and follow her? Then what? Get her number? Ask her out for a drink? Fudge, she is long gone now.

LMFAO

He told me this story and I laughed at him for hours.

Do you have a funny Jeep wave story to share?

I followed another JK into a car wash and on our way out, he asks me "hey do you ever notice people waving at you? what's up with that?"

I say "yea it's the Jeep wave, we all wave to each other."

"Ohhhhhhh"

Derp.

haha yeah when I got my Jeep I instantly noticed the wave and I always wave! My hubby was riding with me the first time and was like what are you doing? I tried to explain to him but he dont get it. I told him Its A Jeep Thing You Wouldnt Understand! He thought I was crazy. When he was driving and I seen a Jeep coming I told him to make sure he waved and he was no I dont see the point I got so mad at him. But as the Jeep got closer the other guy waved first and finally the hubby waved back. It still takes him a minute. He makes sure to point out when they dont wave back

My BF didn't know about the Jeep wave for some time. He thought he was pimpin for awhile, until his dad told him about the wave. His dad laughed at him too, so I wasn't the only one.

It only to took 10 days to pop my Jeep wave cherry! LOL

i think the 'wave' may be dying with the JK/JKU crowd. i now own a jku (i used to own a '97 tj) and on my way to work, 1 out of 6 jeeps waved back. the 1 that did wave i have a feeling wouldn't have if i didnt wave first. i have, or am developing a 2 part theory here... the JK/JKU owners are ignorant to the tradition, so they dont wave, thus the tj/cj, etc peeps dont bother if they see a JK/JKU... AND THE TJ/CJ/etc peeps may think "awww, the hell w/ it", in general.

I see a wrangler, I wave. I have waved 6 times in the last 10 days and the only one who waved back at me was the hot blue Jeep guy. Not sure if he would have waved at me first but he still waved. My Jeep waves was not returned mostly because people were on their cell phone . Seriously people, get off your phones when you are driving. Pay attention to the road and enjoy the ride.

And the guy in the white Jeep, get off your ipad. You shouldn't be on it while you are driving. It's people like you who causes accidents.

At first when I had my YJ years ago i didn't know about the wave, then all of a sudden others in Jeeps waved at me and I thought where the hell do I know them from? Do I owe them any money? are they cops? then I caught on that it was a Jeep thing lol!

Now I wave to every jeep that I see weather it's modded or stock, 2 door or 4 door!

I thought it was for just Wranglers. When I had my Liberty, no one EVER waved at me..of course I was super heavy back then. Maybe people didn't wave because I looked like Jedi the Hut (I'm Asian, to help with the mental picture here) behind the wheel. I use to be 250 at 5'3", I wasn't exactly pleasing to the eyes.

There is an official wave thread here: Offical Wrangler Forum Jeep Wave Thread.

Threads on the wave topic are usually closed quickly and posters referred to the official thread, where posts on the wave are more than welcome.

The only way to know about this is to post a wave thread, or witness someone else do it, and see what happens.....

It's no biggy. No reason you should know, that I know of.

NOPE, the Federal Government has a "Top Secret" designation for the
acronym "WAVE" and we're forbidden to useit forum/publicly-

For some reason you must do the wave but you cannot discuss the wave around here outside of that thread.

LOL, I don't know. I got in trouble because I typed the word "a**" and a mod edited my post and gave me a warning. No big deal. I enjoy this forum and don't want to be kicked off, blocked or whatever.

As I was waving to a Jeep coming toward me today, there was another one a few car lengths behind him, so I just kept the wave going...longest Jeep wave yet!

Coincidentally, all 3 of us were black JKs!

I don't think either waved back. Must be because I'm still on OEM wheels/tires

Hey Daggo.. Aren't you a devils fan? You must be loving what they have done to get where they are

Have to say I usually only wave at Willy's and up style Jeeps (anything the top can be removed on) but will wave back to any Jeep owner that waves
