Yesterday 12:28 AM
flowerfistandbestialwail Got my first ever honk the other day. Was waiting at a red to make a right turn east and when the oncoming eastbound traffic stopped at their fresh red there was a lil stock JK at the front of one lane who honked when I didn't wave, figuring them to be too far away to notice even if they did care. Promptly made an enthusiastic albeit awkward wave while turning away from em and all was well

Huskie About 2,500 miles during the past few days, from MN to CA and back. Not many waves, and I even passed though Moab.

first was a 4 door driven by a woman who didnt even acknowledge me

2nd was a 4 door driven by a man. he started tooting his horn and flashing a peace sign at me.

cracked my wife up and made my day

sduphily I ran completely stock (on the outside) for a good year...small upgrades until last weekend (2 1/2 years old) and I must say that 90% of the time here in Delaware I get the wave.

I have noticed though that it is very rare on separated highways. Mostly get waves from the guys with no doors on the seperated roads. 2 lane highways...it's happening...doesn't matter what year, upgrades, or who is in it.

What I have noticed more recently though are the blacked out interior ones and it's difficult to see anything inside...not sure what those guys/gals are doing.

I don't recall seeing a single post on here that says they don't even wave back to stock JKUs who wave first, so don't be discouraged lots of folks have given up waving to jk(u)s but will gladly return any wave they receive from one! Also just keep in mind not everyone "gets" the wave, or pays attention to other vehicles on the road. Most wave snubs for me have been from drivers who weren't paying attention

ffpd266 I have two pet peeves. One is people that do not use turn signals. The other is other jeep owners that do not wave back. I wave to all. Does not matter if it is stock (mine is for now), xtreme set-up or in between. But what is worse to me is jeep owners that do not use turn signals AND DO NOT WAVE!!! C'mon people, it is not rocket science. OK, I know using a turn signal requires manual dexterity, but a wave??? It's natural and it brings a smile to your face!!!!

LoL. Well of course! More friendly than some of my generation. they were rocking their mods too!

gburkett Think I have finally have all my locals trained to wave back. I give and receive from most every jeep I pass on my daily commute now.
09-12-2014 07:51 PM
ivantate I would rather drive my shiny stocker that is muddy and scuffed underneath than a budget boosted posing pouch.

Everyone gets a wave from me.

Good choice, 2014 Sahara Unlimited here too.

I do agree with the chrome aspect of this, though I typically write it off as a HS/college girl or frat douche (I live near SMU . . . ha).

I drive a Sahara (with stickers removed, TF 2.5" lift, 35" Duratracs, bumpers/tire carrier, etc.) and always wave. Stock Saharas, again, are typically girls.

YMMV

nboucher98 I Jeep Wave every time I see another Jeep, and I have an Unlimited. I get them back from all sorts of Jeeps. In fact, unless a high school of college girl is driving, I get waves from everyone. It's not just a 2-door (or YJ, or TJ, or CJ) thing. It's a Jeep Wave.

ffpd266 Had my 2 door since May plus owned a YJ in the '90's. The salesman back then told me about the wave when I bought the Jeep. Been waving ever since. But when I bought the Willys in May, I knew more about the history of Jeep than the salesman We were talking about the history and I mentioned the wave and he looked at me with a puzzled look and said 'Wave?" This guy wasn't more than 25 yrs old. So I believe that it is more of an education of the past traditions that the sales people need to bone up on to educate the newer owners of today.

I wave at all I come by. Not to insult soccer moms (my daughter is one) but she learned the wave from me in 1995 she now owns a Jeep of her own and waves just as much. The tradition has to be passed down and should be part of the lore that sales people need to be aware of.

Just my 2 cents.
09-10-2014 08:23 PM
marslim I generally only wave to modified jeeps or wave back if they wave first... Too many soccer moms driving bone stock 4drs around my area, I'm not waving to them all.
09-10-2014 08:23 PM
rdgshooter I had a 2 door for like a week but the dealer screwed everything up so I ended up buying a 4 door last week at a different dealer. I do the Jeep wave to both 2 door and 4 door it seems around my house I haven't got many waves back in the 4 door, but closer to work they usually wave first or wave back. I did seem to get more waves in the 2 door though.
09-10-2014 08:20 PM
NC Rob Just got my 4 door, 50 50 on the wave.... But they ll catch on!👋
09-10-2014 08:16 PM
JackDaWack I see MANY more 4doors daily, and 85% of time i get a waive back... even from the soccer moms! they seem more excited then most actually... I drive a 4 door and i always waive, mods get a thumbs up.

Midas_Touch 4 doors here, and happily wave to fellow jeepers
09-10-2014 08:10 PM
Gumbys69 I noticed the same thing except if the 4 dr is full of mods then they wave.

09-10-2014 08:06 PM
