I always get compliments on my JK from the teens at the drive-thru windows. (Don't judge my unhealthy eating habits! )
The other day, two kids were talking to me at the Chick Fil A window, and one said, "one of these days I'm going to get a Jeep like this!"
I smiled, told him about the Wave ("Google it--it's a real thing.") and his buddy pipes in with....(get ready...)
"Subarus do that too! Subaru drivers have a special wave to each other too!"

|Yoga-Mud-Sand||Thanks everyone. I was starting to get discouraged that I wasn't getting the wave returned. Some weren't even looking at me. But I've determined to wave at every jeep. I tell myself that I'm waving as a salute to the history and sacrifice of the jeep. Not the driver. If they return the wave or not is no longer as big of a concern.......BUT I SURE DO GET HAPPY WHEN THEY DO!|

|andymac40330||I definitely seem to get more response after I got the 33's and leveling kit installed earlier this week.|

|Mad Mac||Hmm. I too have had the impulse to wave to Jeeps when I am driving one of my non-Jeep vehicles. I'm new here, but maybe the Jeep wave should be expanded to include when not in your own Jeep. Then Jeep drivers would know that the other person is also a Jeep enthusiast, just not in their Jeep at the time.|

|Jus Jim||Exchanged the first wave today (picked up my ruby monday). Still have to train the brain to pay attention.|

|Gabylee||Without going back over all the treads, Does raising the four fingers, with keeping the thumb on the wheel, still count as a wave?|

My wife noted the other day that she now gets more waves since she installed the reindeer antlers and Rudolph nose on her Jeep.

|Kadonny||I probably get 75% response back...pretty good I think.|

|Jancie||I am getting return waves when driving my mail delivery jeep now. I think I throw people off because they don't expect a mail delivery person to wave especially since I am driving a stock JKU with RH drive but even the modified jeeps are waving back to me now.|

|muchomacho||I am so glad to hear all of you jeepers are keeping the wave going. I just moved to South Florida and bought my 4th Jeep. I wave to everybody. tj's yj's four doors, stock or mod I love to wave. But I'll be honest people down here don't wave back. Maybe 1 in 15 is waving. The rest are stuck on their phones or look at me like I'm trying to start a fight. Keep the wave going.|

|janiem||Love the wave! 5 for 5 today! I wave even as the passenger. Figure i have the "right" even if mine is at home in the garage")|

|marktaylor||Got to be on the receiving end of a wave today on my way to lunch. Had a coworker with me who asked if I knew the other guy when I waved back...I told him, "it's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand".|

|flowerfistandbestialwail||Jeep waves are slim here in the winter. We get crazy long daylight hours in the summer but in the winter it's the exact opposite, so unless you're out during working hours from October - March (and most folks aren't because they have jobs to pay for their jeep obsession ) you're pretty much SOL. I've gotten maybe two waves in the last month as a result|

I actually went five for five the other day. I was blown away. But then number six totally ignored me.

|jrork||Hah! Today, we just picked up our first Jeep after looking at them for years (test drove a new CJ5 in 1979) and couldnt believe the "Jeep Wave" we were getting. Lots to learn for sure|

|elise||Jeeps at the Beach are good wavers! and Southerners are natural wavers. When I first got mine it was such an uplift to just go for a ride and get waves. Don't over-think it folks, just wave ~ ~ ~ \\wavey//|

"make that person’s day so much better"
This poignant article from the Westport, Connecticut Staples High School news site
reflects on a "good self esteem day completely ruined":
The Jeep Wave Uncovered
We know the feeling.

Found this in the Jeep Memes thread. I totally disagree especially with the year that it supposedly died.

Wave threads come up often. We try and keep them all in one place. You'll notice the post was merged in with the official wave thread. I left a 1 day redirect.
