Jks are usually driven by spoiled or snobby people that don't appreciate the jeep and its culture. Hense not waving

Easy way is electrical tape! That way you can peel it right off. That or plasti dip.

Some people even spray then with window tint.

Be sure to check your local and state laws to check the legality of covering your headlights with something like that though!

You know I live in LA and there's lots of Jeeps but none of the drivers do the wave! But if I drive a 1/2 hour out of town I get the wave again. It's a travesty I tell ya!

When you get to take her downtown and you park it at the very top of the parking structure so you can look at her - and not for security reasons!
