jeep smiles

I was just wondering, when I drive around with my jeep, I am aaaaal smiles
and when I see other 2-door jeeps, they all wave or thumb up etc. but when I see 4-door wranglers, they do not even look up smile or anything. it was just an observation from here in south florida, I hope not to offend anybody

Thats called The Jeep Wave!

I noticed that the majority of 4 door owners don't know about the Jeep wave and therefor don't wave

Yeah, it's not all JK owners.. these non wavers will eventually move on to a smoother riding, better on gas SUV and we'll all have used JK's to buy and love...

All of the above, unless it was mean, (cause I didn't read all of em) But seriously, mostly I think it's due to the fact that several JK owners don't care about the Jeep community thing, it's just cool transportation for them. Also I'd imagine in FL especially that a lot of them are rentals, so not even real Jeep owners..... JMO.

Please don't think this is TYPICAL 4 DOOR people. I have a 4 Door, and I get so excited every time I see another Jeep just to wave at. I think the main problem, and I've talked about this with other jeep people is that quite a bit of 4 door Jeep owners aren't Jeep enthusiasts. They bought the 4 door, because it was just like a bigger SUV, but don't realize the excitement behind the community.

When I pass someone in a jeep who doesn't wave, I get very annoyed. lol.

I think the reason most ofus JK "unlimited" owners don't wave is--

It takes both hands on the steering wheel to keep the instantaneous horsepower, under full control !!

Course, thats just me and my RUBI !!

well, sort of. graduating does, in a way, imply getting older. so yes, when we "graduate" into senility and elderly age, we will move onto the JK. you know, when we need that squishy suspension and room for our walkers .



just kidding, bud.

I agree that most people buying the 4dr are new to jeeping but please don't group all of us together. I pass plenty of TJ's that don't wave. It's like I tell my wife. If enough of us keep waving at them they will catch on. Keep waving.
