Quad Citys Area Iowa

Have had my YJ about a month now. I have noticed this is not a real Jeep friendy area. I wave and get very few returns. Hope it is not my breath?

I live just outside of des moines, and its the same thing. I get a good amount of TJ's and YJ's to wave back, an occasional JK, and no one else.. It's kinda depressing.

I wonder if its the people or if they don't like your commie theme?? haha

I'm from the qc area. I get a fairly good return on waves. Except yesterday for some reason. Waved to 6 and only got one in return.... Normally I get a pretty good return.

Southern Iowa here. Same thing. I wave at all and very few wave back. Is it my 4 dr JK or that most around here are perfect makeup, soccer mom's? I'll keep waving.

Waver

Flying to Colorado to pick up my white 99 TJ next week. Once I get her back, count on a wave if I see you.
