stumpbuster ^well its good to know that you are zoned out fiddeling with yer phone while driving

nickbrody I'm in Trumbull and I got my first wrangler about 2 months ago - 2010 JKU Mountain. I love it! There are quite a few wranglers on the road here, especially on nice days. I get waves about 75% of the time, and I wave when I'm not zoned out (playing with phone/radio). I'm thinking sometimes oncoming wrangler drivers don't see me wave, just a few fingers off the wheel.

If you can moon, and still manage to keep the wrangler under control, then more power to you. Your technique might catch on and it's a wave to wranglers, moon to Cherokees.

SWMBO and I day-tripped RI last Saturday. I was got maybe 1 wave for every 3 Jeeps we saw, and there were a bunch. Meh, whatever. I waved.
04-09-2014 07:57 PM
Ptrowski I know every Wrangler on my commute now, still wave to the non wavers. I will say there are more wavers in CT than RI.
04-08-2014 04:11 AM
tazz888 I'm in Wallingford and get about a 50/50 mix of waves. Most of the non wavers seem to be older guys, soccer moms and younger girls. It does seem like its more of a JK thing though, almost all of the CJ,YJ and TJ's wave. I just keep waving and don't let the non wavers bother me much. My 6 y/o daughter even waves and points out the people who don't wave back. All she says about them is "They just don't get it daddy" LOL!

arah1 Since I got my JKURX last month, everyone I have waved too has return the wave except for just a couple of jeeps. It is awesome to be back in a jeep once again.
04-07-2014 07:32 AM
kuge21 I am now finding a significant increase in waves Probably 80% now. It probably does not hurt that the town is smaller so after 10 months of waving folks feel obligated to wave back :-)

Get a water ballon ready and throw it at their windshield. That'll get their attention.....

JoseRubicon Today I passed about 6 jeeps after work around the Hartford and Manchester area and all of them waved. Combination of TJs and JK. 😃

WillyWheeler Got snubbed 3 times in Fairfield county yesterday, glad that's only where I work and not live.

Branford, Ct the worst

I work in Branford, live in East Haven, and have noticed most Branford Jk owners dont wave.
Also noticed most people wave around Cheshire, Southington, and there are a ton of Jeeps in those areas.

scooter185 I'm hoping for some good snow tomorrow to drive through. As long as there's no ice like last week.


And got snubbed by another TJ today :/ our JKs are jeeps too!

Congratulations in your JUKRX. That's going to be a sweet Jeep. Have fun with it! Which dealer did you ordered through?

I bet that made the difference! I bring the kids with me for the same reason. They love it.

Took the kids sledding Saturday morning and on the way back took the long way through a Tobacco field trail that was not plowed. The kids loved it and the jeep had no issues going through 10+ inches of snow. To your point the end of the trail was a pile of snow the plow truck left so I just gave it more skinny pedal and went right through!!

Monday I had some fun in the back of a parking lot though ;-) oh and as far as waving goes, I wave at every wrangler I see. I'd say 3/4 wave back. The majority of JKs do, it's the older TJ/YJ guys that usually snub me.
The older guys snub me also. I thought it was for other reasons at first. Lol. But I guess that's just how they are. I seem the same Jeepers where I'm from and most of the time when I'm paying attention I wave and they wave back.

Dncnbear1 Not any better on Long Island!! Maybe you can't see out of the windows in a Jk so they can't see us waving?? I don't see one with the windows open too often either even on the most butiful get this top n doors off kinda day!!! I wonder if removable doors n top is an option on a Jk?
02-07-2014 10:21 AM
WillyWheeler Have had my JK for about 2 weeks now, and have gotten quite a few waves from other Jeeps 2 door and 4 door, but there have been a fair share of snubs as well. I guess it's just a matter of whether or not people are truly into the way of life or just think of it as transportation.

3rdJeep I'll always wave unless I'm spaced out. I bought my 72 CJ5 in 1981 off my brother. He told me about the wave. Been doing ever since I’ve owned a Jeep. I notice that the JKUs are the biggest slackers. No offence to JKU users who do wave! Regarding the hard top....All I had on my CJ5 was a ragtop. My YJ came with a hard top and I bought a ragtop for it within 6 months. Loved it in the summers until the kids were born. Now my oldest is off to college and I treated myself to a new JK....with a hard top. If we get an extended forecast of good weather, I'll try to get the top off of a day or so.

Buddha12 Not all CT drivers are snobs. I happen to know a lot of Jeepers and we all wave. As posted earlier in the thread it's the Jeep driving soccer moms and wannabes that are the ones who refuse to wave.
