Oh No!!! My son has started and had me ROFL!!!

I bought my son the 02 Wrangler X 3 weeks ago and we have been working on it. He only has his permit right now, so I drive with him everywhere. I pointed out that the other jeeps we pass wave. He has started doing this....to all Jeeps and they all wave back

Today we ran some errands and he is doing great. No more stalling in first and no more whiplash. Lots of jeeps out today. several did not wave. When we passed the 3rd one that did not wave (out of 7 or 8), he got pissy. His comment was "What is wrong with these guys? Must be a bunch of pricks!" I was laughing so hard!!! I had to explain to him that some here have posted their displeasure with others not waving back. He understood why I laughed. He did draw the conclusion that the "non wavers" were all in much newer jeeps and probably yuppies who think driving their jeep on the grass in the front yard is going off road

Or not looking as they passed. I don't wave sometimes when I'm in traffic. I would rather pay attention to the road. I see what you are saying but most new jeepers take a while to come into the fold. :/

I think you definitely notice a lot more jeeps once you start waving at all of them. Ha. I think you're doing that parenting this right op.

That's funny. I was driving w/ my wife the other day in the minivan, ( 2 big dogs, 3 kids, and 2 adults are not fitting in ole' blue ), and I saw a nice TJ go by. As usual I said, " nice Jeep" as I waved. My wife just laughed. She then told me all 3 of my boys say the same thing when they see a Jeep go by! I've trained them well!!

First mod was to get ALL the maintenance done. Since I paid for the vehicle, the maintenance and the new(ish) tires, he is making the list of "wants". I have bought him a steering wheel cover and ordered some "zombie response team" stickers that he liked. I have the cans of rustoleum bed liner spray for the front grill and fenders.

Now, his want list in this order (will have to wait for Christmas & birthday).

New stereo CD player (w blue tooth)
New front and rear speakers.
New amp and sub for the center console.
Waterproof seat covers.
Rugged ridge diamond plate rear covers.

He's a kid, you know he'll probably bring it somewhere he doesn't belong to showoff to his friends. Santa should bring him a winch.

He'll be wanting that 3" lift, 33" tires and new gearing, SYE/CY, oh yeah, I forgot lockers, and probably a new front bumper and winch before he turns 18. He will definitely want to get all that in, before he has to pay for it himself. Just sayin'. And, you probably don't want him to read this thread.

Spoiling is not a bad thing, if he learns to appreciate things, and works hard to get them as a man, on his own. Then, he will want to give those same advantages to his children. I just wish I still had my mom, even without those advantages. Thank you moms and dads, we wuv you.

All his friends first words when they saw it were "Lets take it mudding!!!"

I think he will need to hit up grandpa for the winch. My youngest is a freshman in HS this year. We have bought each one of our kids a new instrument for marching band for Christmas as freshman. No more crappy school instruments if they stuck with it from elementary to HS. Just my luck they all play different instruments. My youngest plays the tinner sax. That will be expensive to buy her that.

Maybe grandpa can pick up a used one and rebuild it like he did the one he put on his truck...

Well, this did start out as a wave thread. You could ask the admins to delete this thread for your own economic safety, and tell them you will post it in the appropriate section. Might work, they are nice.

It's all good. He is not a needy boy and already has his dream vehicle. He didn't even want me to spend more on the 31's I just put on it because they cost more. He said the stock tire sizes would be fine to save on cost.
