|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!|

|RoadiJeff||The poll in this thread is a bit flawed. I wave at all Wranglers but not all Jeeps. However, that is not one of the choices.|

Jeep Wavin' At Night
I seem to find myself seeing alot of jeeps at night. Obviously, you cant see if the driver waves or not. I started flashing my fog lights to see if others will get what I am trying to do. Anyone else have a different way of throwin out that outside the box wave?

|.........||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!|

I used to wave to all Jeeps (this is Jeep #6 for me) but over the years have realized that some Jeeps seem to be in a category by themselves. For example the Liberty, Patriot, and/or Grand Cherokee very seldom return a wave.
A sad lesson I have learned is that there is a difference between "Jeep people" and "people who just happen to be driving a Jeep". (Yep, there's a story there).
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.

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's a wave. it's is certainly not mandatory but if one wants to be part of the 'family', it's is understood...and yes, I do, Thanks

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

sorry...am I in the wrong thread for that?

That's what keeps me wondering.
Are they waving because of the jeep or because I'm pretty?

|Moonrider||I wave to most wranglers and the most exiting is waving to girls. Recently i waved at naked jeep (not girl) and she looked at me and smiled. Its obvious she didn't know about the wave and thought i wave to her because she is pretty. Well one time i may get her phone number who knows. I"ll keep waving|

|1monday||I wave at all Wranglers...hardly ever get a return wave...oh well, their loss|

|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.|

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!

|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.|

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

4 door owner here and I keep thinking about quitting the wave because all you uppity 2 door owners don't wave. Me and me trailer have Ben through 8 western states and very little waving. Sheesh!!!

|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.|
|08-23-2014 06:55 PM|
I will keep trying.
