I hate to read posts about how JK owners never wave, some might not, but many do!
I admit there are alot of JK's (and older Jeeps) near me that do not wave, they don't wave back either... it's gotten me so down that I don't initiate a wave to anyone anymore but I do look for a wave from all Jeeps and happily return those waves!
These guys buzzin around in Jeeps flipping people off have problems... seriously, to flip a stranger off for no apparent reason is sick, and in Detroit can be dangerous!!

|stabs05||I was passed, rather angrily, by an XJ a couple of years ago. It was on a 25 mph road coming out of a community park, he was right on my tail, there was a city lawnmower cutting the side grass up ahead, half in the road. I had to move over a little to avoid the lawn mower, just as the XJ was apparently trying to pass me so he can go double the speed limit, he got pissed and floored it passed me after we both passed the lawn mower. I pulled up behind him at the light that was 500 feet down the road.|

I don't think it had anything to do with the wave, and everything to do with the speed. Depending on the street around here, if I got 5mph over (which is what I almost always do) I still get tailgated and passed a lot. But like George Carlin said:
"Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?"

Waving is a jeep thing, you either do it or not, has nothing to do with what jeep you drive bro....
As for having other jeepers acting unbecoming a jeep owner, has'nt happend yet..Its mostly the people new to jeeping that dont wave, but just give them time and they will come around.

My friend drives an XJ and had a similar incident.
He works the graveyard shift and was leaving work around 2 am. Hes got a lifted white XJ with 35s, custom roof rack, lights, etc. Well he pulled up next to another white XJ at an intersection that was stock. My friend looked over at him, and the guy just looked back and gave him the finger...all they were doing was sitting at a stop light Apparently this guy was a little jealous.

This 4dr owner waves at every Jeep he sees. I quite getting bugged when other Jeepers don't wave back and just wave to the Jeep whether it has a driver or not. Remember, Jeeps can't always pick their owners and it's not the Jeeps fault if the owner is stupid!
It's a Jeep thing, I understand

Maybe he was giving you the thumbs up and has an exceptionally long thumb.
Maybe he has had 4 fingers amputated on that hand and the only one left was the middle one.
Maybe he was telling you that you were #1
maybe he was pointing to the sky (as in "watch out for low flying aircraft)

|GoldenSahara00||Yep anyways dont worry about it people are always gona be idiots for no good reason. I would like to see him get out of his car and flip you off Im a calm guy until someone gives me a reason not to be.|

|BLEGAN||i could see that. as to the hummer thing, so funny. and i agree that the vast majority of us are chill. one of the many reasons i love this community|
|02-03-2011 02:54 PM|
You were driving fine, dont worry about that. Perhaps he though you flipped him off for following close if he couldnt see through your rear window? who knows. personally..
Its probably someone who wouldnt afford a Hummer. 99% of jeep drivers are laid back, amzingly awesome people, but theres always those other kind...

Typical 4 door JK owner.. Nuff said
I've learned to just to look at them to see if they initiate the wave first.. If not then so be it.. For the most part 4dr JK owners Dont' get it.. Let me also add I say this in no offense to those that do.. Just the way it is
