I think Jeep should put instructions on the sun visor letting new Jeepers know what the Jeep wave is
I wave at ALL Jeeps even when I'm driving my pickup and it's a Chevy

I continue to wave to every jeep! I would not say I have one particular wave, it may be two fingers, it may be 4 off the steering wheel, it may be my whole hand in the windshield. I also, don't think the non waving is due to JK vs CJ, TJ, etc. I do think the theory of folks buying a jeep for other reasons could have something to do with it. For me, I continue to wave and hope I get one in return. No biggie, I just brought it up because I was surprised by the non wavers.

I have noticed that a built-up off road jeep will more likely wave than a stock one.

Here there are soooooo many Jeeps running around, I see moms in JKU's all the time, they never even look at other Jeeps (they dont get the whole Jeep thing) I do get random waves from older Jeeps. Many JK's dont even look at me. Maybe there are too many Jeeps on the road? Its not as special anymore? People buy them as "cars"? I have each time, and so does my other half

I bought my first Jeep Wrangler X in 05, loved the "community wave"! Missed it when I went back to a "civilian" car. Back in a 2011 Wrangler Sport now and have noticed the wave isnt returned as much. I drive a school bus for a living and all I do is wave all day long to other bus drivers! Geeze my arm is tired!

The best part of the spring and summer is how easy it is to wave with the top down and the doors off. I get a lot more waves like that.

I really like it when the female passenger waves while her husband/boyfriend just glares ...

I always wave at every Jeep I see, I love being a Jeeper! Sometimes I dont get a wave back but I think its just a matter of the other guy/girl not noticing me.. Just means I need some more mods!

Here's one: do you wave at another jeep at night? Once in awhile I try, but i'm sure i'm wasting my time.

I heard about the Jeep waving thing long before I got my JK. I will keep the tradition going as long as I'm driving it.

BTW, is the tradition just for Wranglers, or all Jeeps?

I wave to all wranglers stock or modded. And I also wave to Cherokees and libertys that are definitely modded for trail riding.

I have been waving quite a bit since I got the Jeep in October (I looked the other way when passing a JK on 20" chromies). Not one wave returned. I have given up, I think the Jeep wave phenomenon does not exist in Australia.
I got my hopes up when I saw a modded Rubi, but nothing (modded Jeeps seem to be a rarity around Melbourne).

I wave no matter what....

When I had my TJ and driving down the road I always waved some didnt respond. But as they saw me every morning they started to wave back. Now I have had the JK for a couple of years any Jeeps I see passing always seem to wave back as well. It doesnt bother me if they dont wave back. Even riding my MC some don't wave back either....

I've always thought it was a Wrangler only thing and have acted accordingly. To each his own though. IF someone driving another model of Jeep waived at me, I would waive back.
