When I first got my Jeep two summers ago it seemed like everybody (including CT) waved. This winter/spring it seems like everyone stopped. Not sure why. I've still got my hand out there in the wind tho'.

I hear you.. Just got my 2013 wrangler and been waving with only about a 10% response. Hopefully with the warmer weather the % responding will increase as I am starting to take it personal.

Dont ever take it personal. I know I've caught myself zoning out before and only after they passed noticed "Damn that was a jeep. I hope I didn't miss a wave". I think in the winter it's easier to crawl into your own world and miss them going by. Warm weather and tops down I think the rate goes up.

This past week has been such awesome weather. Cruising around top down and doors off. Happy to report the ratio of waves is way up!

i'm over here in Tolland County (where I do most of my Wrangler driving) and although I have only owed my TJ since last July I'd say I am experiencing about a 90% wave from the YJ/TJ drivers and about a 20% wave from the JKers.

......and I too am guilty of zoning out and missing the ocassional complimentary wave.

I'm definitely guilty of zoning out on my drive home from work, but I feel like I have the opposite luck for waves!

When I see them I wave to every wrangler, but there's a couple tj and yj's that never seems to wave back, every JK has waved back though. I think it's entirely location dependent, back in MA, it's hit or miss, regardless of the model. More wave backs the further away from Boston though.

Since I am new to the club I have been waving to everyone on most roads. I would say about 80% wave back. I can also say even after 5 days o owning my new JK I am hooked. I love this thing!

I've got a new JK in Columbia, CT. I get probably a 60% wave hit. My 4 year old yelled at me from the back seat today for missing waving to a black jeep, I was zoning out, he was really riled up about it!

I got my first Jeep in January and have been waving ever since. The weird thing is when I am driving my work van or wife's Honda and I wave at a Jeep out of instinct! I have gotten some strange looks!

Just keep waving.

When I got me first jeep I had no idea about the wave. Almost every wrangler was waving at me for 2 days before I decided to look into it. Now I wave all the time, you never know if there is a first time owner that has no clue about the jeep life.

Here in Southwestern CT I've got about a 50% success rate, but i don't let that stop me from wavin' at every wrangler I pass! Just to be clear it's only wranglers right? I'd go nuts if I had to wave at Libertys, Cherokees, etc...

Had a YJ for years and everyone waved. Just picked up a JK and the percentage has dropped dramatically. Still a wrangler owner guys...no need to be petty, we're all still a tight group.

You guys don't even understand how much this bothers me. And I think people don't wave to JKs, because most don't expect a wave back. A lot seem to be first time jeepers in CT area, and unless you wave out your window, they won't even see you. Makes me want to pull the ebrake, turn around fast, hope I don't flip, and chase them down to teach them the ways.

Well it's unfortunate that I'm viewed as a new jeep owner. I should put a decal on my grill that says seasoned jeep owner.

I don't wave at JKs, same reason as others usually don't get waves back. Plus I work with a couple of lady's who have JK's hardtop and full doors never come off and the jeep never leaves asphalt. whats the point?
