Welcome to Oregon!!! I'm originally from Tualatin but now living downtown.
On a side note however i agree with what most people are saying as well, i dont really wave at the *cough* mommy missles *cough* haha i mean jks, because its just awkward. Most the time its middle aged women dropping their kids off at school or soccer practice and when i wave they probably think...
A) im confusing them for someone else i know that drives a similar van err i mean jeep
B) that im hitting on them hahahah
So for now i dont wave at JKs but i always wave back if one waves at me. even if they do have onstar! hahahah just kidding i bash on them because im really just jealous of the rubicons with their electronic swaybar disconnects.
however im totally content with my TJ, when i break anything, its still relatively affordable to find and replace. even if i had the money id feel a little eerie driving my 25k 30k car over rocks etc.
