I bet that made the difference! I bring the kids with me for the same reason. They love it.

Took the kids sledding Saturday morning and on the way back took the long way through a Tobacco field trail that was not plowed. The kids loved it and the jeep had no issues going through 10+ inches of snow. To your point the end of the trail was a pile of snow the plow truck left so I just gave it more skinny pedal and went right through!!

I will be waving once again when I finally get my ordered 2014 JKURX. This will make jeep number 4 that I have owned over the years.

Congratulations in your JUKRX. That's going to be a sweet Jeep. Have fun with it! Which dealer did you ordered through?

I'm hoping for some good snow tomorrow to drive through. As long as there's no ice like last week.


And got snubbed by another TJ today :/ our JKs are jeeps too!

Branford, Ct the worst

I work in Branford, live in East Haven, and have noticed most Branford Jk owners dont wave.
Also noticed most people wave around Cheshire, Southington, and there are a ton of Jeeps in those areas.

Today I passed about 6 jeeps after work around the Hartford and Manchester area and all of them waved. Combination of TJs and JK. 😃

I am now finding a significant increase in waves Probably 80% now. It probably does not hurt that the town is smaller so after 10 months of waving folks feel obligated to wave back :-)

Since I got my JKURX last month, everyone I have waved too has return the wave except for just a couple of jeeps. It is awesome to be back in a jeep once again.

I'm in Wallingford and get about a 50/50 mix of waves. Most of the non wavers seem to be older guys, soccer moms and younger girls. It does seem like its more of a JK thing though, almost all of the CJ,YJ and TJ's wave. I just keep waving and don't let the non wavers bother me much. My 6 y/o daughter even waves and points out the people who don't wave back. All she says about them is "They just don't get it daddy" LOL!

I know every Wrangler on my commute now, still wave to the non wavers. I will say there are more wavers in CT than RI.

SWMBO and I day-tripped RI last Saturday. I was got maybe 1 wave for every 3 Jeeps we saw, and there were a bunch. Meh, whatever. I waved.

I live in Branford and travel to Milford and Wallingford a lot for work. I get waved to a lot. Over 60% of the time. I'm noticing a lot of Cherokees owners been waving. What's up with that??

If you can moon, and still manage to keep the wrangler under control, then more power to you. Your technique might catch on and it's a wave to wranglers, moon to Cherokees.

I'm in Trumbull and I got my first wrangler about 2 months ago - 2010 JKU Mountain. I love it! There are quite a few wranglers on the road here, especially on nice days. I get waves about 75% of the time, and I wave when I'm not zoned out (playing with phone/radio). I'm thinking sometimes oncoming wrangler drivers don't see me wave, just a few fingers off the wheel.
