JMO69 I usually only wave at CJ,YJ,Tj's not the Cherokee SUV types. I would wave back at them if they waved. Usually only CJ,YJ, and TJ's wave to me though.

I have been driving my jeep for the past 3 or 4 days, however today I took my 335i. I waved out of habit this morning. Luckily the guy in the fully modded jeep didn't notice!

Rock Kicker Going to look at a 2011 JKU this afternoon. Purchase or not, I'll have to school the dealer on the Wave (not a Jeep dealer).

Love this... Have to agree...

justin_nj This morning I was driving my daughter and her friend to school. My daughter's friend's dad has a JKU. So out of nowhere, she started talking about the jeep wave and that her dad waves to other jeeps also. So now they are on the hunt for other jeeps and of course we pass 2 and get 2 waves!

So ya, I guess it does become a habit.
I was that guy a few weeks ago when I had to tow my jeep home from the mountains with a uhaul. Naturally I only spotted a handful of fairly stock jeeps on the way down while actually driving my jeep. On the way home in the van, towing my jeep? Lots of built, beautiful rigs to wave vigorously at from inside the van....

Senayski Sounds like everyone has to move to PA , i get waved at by almost every jeeper. If they dont wave, i rip the e brake turn around and chase em down.
11-20-2014 09:01 AM
Retroman1969 Actually, to be fair, I sometimes have something else on my mind, or I'm fiddling with the stereo or GPS or something, and I don't notice a passing Wrangler is waving at me until it's too late to wave back. Now I try to keep that in mind when I don't get a return wave.
So if any of you guys are on here, a big belated wave to all of you!

Thank you.....Exactly my experience. ..

It's not rocket science, we're not trying to build a piano or split the atom....
Its real simple.....We're just seeing other people that have a similar interest and saying something like "Hey, how's it going" via the wave

We just have to hope that maybe some of those people who buy a Jeep for "just transportation" will enjoy it the way that we do. So I will keep waving at every Jeep I see.

Yup.
Just bought my first in August (after an 8-year delay...) and didn't know a thing about it until the "addiction" kicked in and I was Googling everything I could. Ran across a YouTube video about the wave, Googled some more and am an avid waver 'round these parts.
More importantly, the above mentioned "delay" sits in the back and is a better waver than most.
"On your left!" she calls out.

Yes, i've read your previous posts. We need more jeep owners like you for keeping/passing on this tradition for us(noobs).

Let me tell you my story. First, when i got my jeep in 2013 i never knew about the wave, neither dealer mentioned anyth about it. While driving around in the new jeep i saw other jeep drivers waving at me. I was like why do they wave? I thought about it and i realized something is going on in a jeep community. So i quickly learned that i suppose to wave back. Then i was slowly picking up, but i would not initiate first. Then, i found this thread, and learned a lot about waving. Now i wave to all wranglers and i wave first no matter what. And i learned to not get upset if i don't receive a wave back.

its very entertaining and exciting tradition.

She has never gone back there and anyone that asks us about that dealer we tell to go elsewhere. Personally, I would have gone straight to the owner!

I know this is not true per statistics, but there have been massive amount of JK's sold in the recent years. Also, 7 out of 10 jeeps that i see daily in my area are JK's. My point is not all of the JK owners know about wave or want to wave. But there are lots of jk owners i met that waved without hesitation.

Idk...I got my first CJ in the early 90s and was oblivious for nearly a year till my "All Things Jeep mentor" heard me naively say, "I think people think I'm the previous owner. He must have been popular on the trails cuz I get waves from other Jeeps all the time!" After a harsh verbal attack on my stupidity, I was schooled.

Perfectly said! I for one am not going to whine or have my feelings hurt if someone doesn't "wave" to me... If everyone waved to every Jeep, they'd all figure it out.

There is a flaw in that logic, most of the Jeeps they notice don't wave because they don't know and a lot of others won't wave to JKs because they have been burned by JKs in the past and it is not worth it to them.
