flowerfistandbestialwail I definitely wave at the odd modded Cherokee! My ex's first jeep was a lifted Cherokee and only when that thing bit the dust (at least, until someone more willing to put in the work picked it up) did he get his Wrangler. But the wave was something we learned about from our time with the Cherokee, so if they look like trail rigs they get a wave from me!

The poll above has a misleading category of "To all Jeeps" when it really should be revised to (or another category added) Jeeps similar to yours such as YJ, TJ, CJ JK. It has been my experience that these are the ones that most frequently wave back. I don't wave to ALL Jeeps but do wave to all in the list just mentioned whether or not they are modded. Although I will admit that I usually only wave to a Cherokee that has been either modded or seen trail activity.

And what's up with those that say the four door does not wave back? It must be a local thing as most JKU's return the wave to me in my area.

I have only seen the wave from other Wrangler owners, but I will start looking for the modded Cherokee. I have also understood that the wave is only a Wrangler thing (the true Jeep)

I only consider Wranglers actual Jeeps.

I've commented in the past that I've done the same thing. It started because I had a couple do it to me.

......... I've had jeeps my whole life, then I bought my first wrangler when I was stationed in NM and kept getting the wave and thought it was a NM thing. I just bought a TJ here in RI and got my first wave and it felt like I was back in the family!!! Haha I love it ... My lady thinks it stupid so I upped over and kicked her out!

sorry...am I in the wrong thread for that?
I forgot Wash ever said that. Lol.

As for the wave, if you want the wave to stay alive, just wave to the jeep, if its owner waves back sweet, if not, no harm no foul. And lately its the cjs that wont wave (im in a tj)

It wasn't confusing, it just seemed hypocritical. And that's why the stuck up mindset drives me nuts.

I mean, I know it's not you specifically,cause you wave at everyone. It's just the mindset there that bothers me.

Are they waving because of the jeep or because I'm pretty?

1monday I wave at all Wranglers...hardly ever get a return wave...oh well, their loss
08-25-2014 06:29 PM
roberthleeii People who don't wave to the JKUs are more to blame than the JKU owners for killing the wave because you know better.
08-25-2014 03:36 PM
krbshappy71 How are you folks labeling/screening the so called "soccer moms"? I would hate to be jilted wave because someone pre judged me. I have to look nice for work but my jeep is naked and my kids are grown and gone and I wave. Oh and my foot is out on the side, does that help? I am snickering, don't take me seriously I just want to make sure I get my waves and not mislabeled.

If you see a tiny brunette with rainbow sunglasses and her hair flying all around...WAVE!
08-25-2014 03:29 PM
krbshappy71 I got a Peace wave yesterday, I was so happy! It matters, keep doing it.
08-25-2014 01:17 PM
flowerfistandbestialwail If we keep waving though we might get through to some of them. A friend (who doesn't drive a Jeep but "gets" the Jeep thing) has a friend who bought a Jeep and asked him recently if he waves. He bought it without a clue and eventually googled "why are all these people waving at me??" And now he gets it. And waves.
08-25-2014 01:10 PM
Jeffcs I look at this way (I drive 2-door jk) I wave to all wranglers some do some don't
Just not gonna stop waiving just because some yuppy thought a jeep thinking it would be the coolest SUV on the block and will never get the jeep thing still I wave

Gord P I get waves from lots of 4drs here. I often initiate but that's because I just wave when it seems like it's an appropriate distance where they'll see me. I'm not going to try to categorize those who don't wave because it would no doubt be flawed. There are too many to really say for certain that they never wave. It's entirely possible that one who didn't wave today waved the last 3 times and this was just one of those times where it didn't happen for any number of reasons. Meh. I'm waving anyway.

I'm a new JKUR owner (8 weeks) in Los Angeles and have been totally disappointed by my fellow Angelenos. I wanna keep the tradition going but it's such a fail every time a I try. My girlfriend thinks I'm BSing her about the wave because I never get one back. She just laughs.

I will keep trying.

Unfortunately for you, Ontario does have vanity plates. It seems that Quebec does the opposite of Ontario strictly on principle.
