Jeep Wave Poll

Just for fun, I drove around town during lunch in my TJ and waved a 2-YJ's, 2-JK's and 3-JKU's. Guess how many waved back. I made it a point to wave though all were windshield waves - none hanging out the door!

Poll ends in 7 days.

I get about a 50% response in winter, but 70% response this spring...

I'll guess 2... The yj's?.... Drove around topless today running errands --- the soccer moms in JKs were to busy working their blue tooth and Nav to notice the beautiful weather. Honestly, screw the. "Jeep wave" thing... I'd settle for people just being human and waving back at someone who took The time to say "Hi" them. We're running a society here people.

I waved to about 6 Jeeps today, 4 were JK's two TJ's all but one TJ waved back (though I'm pretty sure he didn't see me)

I learned the "Jeep Wave" from a friend I knew back in '02 who had a Jeep. I've owned my TJ for about 4 months now and have given up all hope I don't even wave anymore cause I just end up looking like a tool. However I do follow the Jeep out of the corner of my eye waiting...just waiting for someone to restore my faith in Jeeple, but alas it has not happened yet.

There's this one orange 4 door jk in my neighborhood and I wave at this mom EVERY time I see her. And every time she just stares at me like I'm crazy, it's funny at this point haha

It's always hit or miss with Jeep waves.

I wave at all Wranglers even if they think I'm stupid. They just have to deal with it.

Me too, me too, I think I get about half of them to respond.

Generally I throw my hand up and keep my eyes on the road. I don't know if they waved back and I don't really care enough to get upset about it. I do it because I want to. I don't do it to get people to notice me.

+1. Even if they don't get why I'm waving, I know why... Some will learn and some will trade it in after a 3 year lease and let us Jeepers buy it.
