I tend to wave early to jeeps when I see them. That way if they dont wave back, my wave turns into one of these.

EVERYBODY IN SOUTHERN KY WAVE OR AS WE CALL IT (SPEAK) TO EACH OTHER . YOU DONT HAVE TO KNOW THE PERSON. IF YOU DO WAVE AT SOMEONE YOU MEET ON THE ROADAND & THEY DONT SPEAK WE USUALLY SAY SOMTHING LIKE "DAMN YANKEE "!!

Well, I am a Yankee, and I have yet to get snubbed on the wave by my fellow New Yorkers!

I'm brand new to Jeeps, just unloaded my Harley for a TJ and am very excited to get it looking the way I want! I have a lot to learn I can already see. Give me the etiquette for waves - seems it's about the same as the bike, newbs never wave and us old bikers just gave up. Ok, I'm not old, tomorrow is the big 40, but still!

Wave first or wait, two fingers over the steering wheel, a hand out the door, doesn't matter...just make sure its more than one finger.

I know how you guys feel. Had my jeep sitting for a couple of days because the rear upper control arm broke loose from the frame. Anyway I was driving a friends tacoma (thumbs up to him for letting me borrow it because he understood and only asked for dinner in return.) But it was weird that I would see other jeeps and not wave. Coming from a bike I understood the whole cultural thing completely. I think other bikers will go a little further out of the way then a jeeper to wave in the panhandle of FL.

Sometimes I still wave to Jeeps when I'm driving my wife's car, just out of habbit.

this is all too funny..my buddy(who owns a jeep) got on my case after not waving to him one day in passing right after I got my jeep..I just didnt see him or I would have done the "jeep wave" lol.. after talking to him I finally figured out why some dude in a jeep waved at us when we were test driving the one I bought

Just wave. That's on you. If they don't wave back, that's on them. The rest doesn't matter.

You guys all need to google "the jeep wave" there is a entire scoring system. A must read for all jeepers. So funny I have it framed hanging in my office at work. (I run a car lot) so it fits in with my jeep decor

Thumbs up Re

This totally cracks me up. I've owned a Grand Cherokee for about 4 years and have never been waved at by other Jeep owners (that I'm aware of). A couple of weeks ago I bought a used Wrangler and during my first ride we passed another Wrangler and the driver waved at me. I asked my wife if she knew him and she said no but maybe he knew the previous owners and thought we were them. Then we passed another that waved. I caught on quickly. I'd say 4 out of 5 Wrangler drivers will wave.

I remember letting my friend drive my old tj home from vacation about 10 years ago. We had a 12 hour trip and about 30 minutes in of his drive he thought it would be funny in my jeep to start

Oops... Wrong button... Contd: He thought it would be funny to start waving to everything that looked like a box on wheels... From semis to uhauls to tractors... It was funny for a split second... Then i kicked him out... Made him ride in the back seat... And drove the rest of the way home... He hasnt driven any of my jeeps since...
