Funny, I've never gotten a return wave from a doorless Jeep, even with my windows open and top off. But I'm also in New England, home of the people who think they're better than you because why not.

I agree, I've seen those Jeep Wave hierarchy lists and I hate them too. Based on one I read, the newer or more stock Jeep initiates the wave. Heck, if I followed that I would almost never start the wave in my JK and never in my Willys.
Youíre not waving at someone to compliment their Jeep! You are waiving at a person the enjoys the Jeep spirit. Granted some people keep their spirit on the pavement but none the less Iíll always endeavor to wave at any Wrangler(ish) Jeep!

It's not a salute, it's not a show of respect to your manliness. It's the idea that one jeep should be waved to first is what would kill it off in the end. As new people start driving jeeps not knowing about the wave. And jeep people (Jeeple?) not waving because they are waiting for their show of respect.
Ok off my soapbox now.

My lesson from fellow Jeepers, the TJ is not a real Jeep. The only capable Jeep with round headlights is the CJ. CJ owners, for the most part, hated both newcomers. Sometime in the early 2000s, the YJ finally got its respect as a trail worthy Jeep, despite its misshaped headlights! Pretty sure the TJ actually earned more respect before the YJ. That being said, I love the 4 door JKU. I actually plan to buy one. The problem with, what seems to be the majority of JKU owners, is that they bought a family SUV (in their minds), not a Jeep, or the lifestyle, and many didn't buy it for the history, camaraderie, or trail capability. They bought it because it was cooler than their other option...like a frikkin Kia Sorrento. Salesmen get younger and take a job selling vehicles that sell themselves without learning a thing about them so they don't even know about the wave. At the end of the day, they climb into their Toyotas and head home. Put it on the cover and throughout the owners manuals in side notes...problem solved. Or even print "Don't forget the Jeep wave!!!" On key chains that come with new keys!
Yeah, this point actually carries across many products out there where a company updates the product, bringing in hordes of new users/enthusiasts but invites derision among the vocal previous consumers for the new product not being authentic or true to its roots.

Itís a tough point for corporations to balance but when it comes down to pleasing their original fan base or pissing them off, the company is always going to pick the option that brings in more money. Heck, many of those who were scornful end up eventually being converts anyway.

No way! I considered a JKU myself for a fleeting moment but being an old school CJ guy back in the day, I was truly drawn to the LJ instead (and love it!). I think a lot of people are like me in that are just conditioned that a seemingly majority of JKU drivers, especially stock machines, donít participate, either out of not knowing about Jeep Wave or just donít care to be involved because they don't feel an affinity for the culture.

It would be great to see more owners like you away this line of thinking!

= vicious cycle. Like I said we CJ owners said it about YJ's. Then we YJ owners said it about TJs. Now we TJ owners are saying it about JKU's.
What we don't say, some of us that is, is that we are currently shopping around for a good JKU! Either way, who cares what you drive. If it's a Jeep and the top comes off...wave. (And wave to the modded XJ's)

By the way, 80% of all statistics are made up. Just pointing out the fact.
I didn't say you were attacking them, you just happen to be reading my comment in a way other than intended. It was relevant because basically everyone has noted that JKU owners wave less, which is exactly what I've noticed as well, in addition to seeing more and more JKUs vs 2 doors. I was merely trying to show how prevalent the JKU has become (which the production numbers support).

Nope the PO put in round LEDs

A loaded JKU Rubicon does a lot more than a tricycle to justify its price. A trike isn't like riding a bike at all, I just don't see the point. It's more like waving at one of the new Cherokees.
Yep, like I said in my previous post, "jerk"!

laollis Sept. I drove to Seattle area, from Idaho. No waves in Idaho. Lots of Jeep waves (about 22 outta 25) around the northern towns, Everett, Snohomish, Marysville.
Oct. I drove to Reno. 3 waves outta 17 Jeeps. 30 yr olds with auto 4drs and 'baby on board' stickers. ugh!
10-19-2014 06:20 PM
thedawgshow A rather older man in an orange JK gave a hardy wave to us in our old TJ. I must say, that when I do see a wrangler around our little town and the country side around it, they do tend to give waves, and my boys love to wave at them!!!!
