|SerenityNow||It kind of saddens me when I read that unModded Jeeps aren't worthy of a wave. I have a stock JK that I LOVE! I would love to be able to take it off road, but right now my money is tied up. I'm also an older female with no access to anyone to help me learn, that's why I'm on this forum. However, I wave at all Wranglers and think the point systems is a lot of fun. One day, my points will raise, but until then, wave at me! I love you Wrangler wranglers!|

|Michel347||I was in Turks and Caicos last week and rent a JK while we were there. Saw a couple of other Wranglers, not sure if it's because they don't see too many on that small Island, but you should have seen their waves, they get really exited, they were almost coming out of their Jeep to wave, half seated, half standing-up, one hand out by the window the other over the windshield, ... I was so surprised when I saw the first one getting so exited that I forgot to wave back, he must have been really dissapointed, ...lol|

|1monday||ooo ooo ooo...I got a wave today!!! ...from a modded TJ in the yuppie side of town (I think that's why I never get waves...I'm either in the hood, or in yuppieville...no waves from either crowd, not that there are any Jeeps in the hood (sorry, no offense meant to anyone living in the aforementioned places))|

But seriously it's awesome to see how many people here do wave. I am not kidding when I say one of the things I enjoy most about driving a jeep is waving at other jeeps. I'm waving at everybody!

|Pittsburghwrangler||Yesterday I waved to a jacked up JK that I see around here all the time. He always waves back and he did yesterday... but so did the girl in the Malibu in front of him! Lmao I guess she thought I knew her but it just made me laugh.|
|Yesterday 05:39 PM|
I wave regardless...but only to other Wranglers.
I was working in Ottawa for a year and a half before moving back here end of March. Good trails there or close by?
I may be heading up this weekend.

Anyway Wens am on the way home from work got the left hand up and out while doing a "right on red" and a stock shiny JKU with the very "Yuppie" looking driver, waved and he did a double take and turned it into a made my day I admit it!!
So some are learning!!
|Yesterday 04:55 PM|
Seriously, I'd have ALOT of explaining to do to my husband if Jeep wave = flirting! Then again, maybe I'm not getting return waves because (gasp) I'm old & no longer hot?! Bummer
& I agree FlowersWail did nail it!

PEACE! I'm switching to peace wave.

Small sample size of 2 weeks experience but so far in South Carolina, the Jeep Wave is nearly non-existent.
It seems to be pretty pointless to even try when passing guys in shiny new Unlimiteds with hard tops and doors. They don't even ever notoice my "old" 06 TJ Unlimited!

|flowerfistandbestialwail||It's weird how many dudes have worried about ladies thinking they're hitting on them or something by waving. It's probably happened, sure, but I don't think as often as guys worry. I've been leered at a lot in the jeep and normally you can tell really easily when it's a "whoa nice rig" leer vs a "whoa nice lady" leer, or even a "whoa a lady driving a sweet rig" leer. Those come from people driving all kinds of vehicles. A jeep wave has never once seemed like anything more than a jeep wave, though. Even when you catch a dude doing a double-take cause he sees you're not also a dude, the wave itself has never seemed like anything more than a jeep wave|
|Yesterday 12:56 PM|
so Peace wave eliminates that ...more peace, more waves

I wouldn't disrespect them by wiggling my foot while they had a hand out.

|jeepergurl67||I wave at every Wrangler I see. 2 door or 4 door. I seem to get waves back most of the time. I used to get upset if I didnt get waved at but I dont anymore. I get the feelling like someone leavin ya hangin in a high five though... kinda lolol|
|Yesterday 07:58 AM|
I probably get waves back 1/3 of the time (see a lot if them around here) but still happy to see them regardless of wave-back.
|Yesterday 07:56 AM|
Just do the wave and feel confident they are doing the same!

|ivantate||Leg wave ftw.|

|wingerdinger151||Not a soccermom, or a female for that matter, but I roll windows down everywhere I go due to the lack of A/C in my jeep and every jeep I see gets the full hand out the window cant miss it wave. Still get snubbed. I have huge hands. Seems like most of the soccermoms dont know what they have in a Jeep and dont realize its special|

Jeep Wavin' At Night
I have noticed that I see a lot more jeeps at night than I do during the day. It sucks because you cant see a jeep wave when driving at night. I have started flashing my fog lights at them hoping they will get what I am trying to do. Does any one else try something like that to keep the wave going in the dark?

|gburkett||I'm a soccer dad, but most waves I get are ladies. Guys don't wave much here. My 11year old girl will spot jeep before me and tell me to wave.lol|

There was a guy showed up to a lake late in the afternoon. One of those fishermen who was born on the wrong surface. He just looked natural on the water. Started out for an evening and bumped into a disabled boat. Used his fishing boat to haul it to shore as custom demands. Technically he could have begged off as his boat was smaller. When they came ashore, the rescue-ies discovered his whole time was towing and apologized. He smiled knowing that they didn't understand. He said "fishing, towed, being towed. All the same. Never a bad day".
Jeeps are medicine to me. The community, an asylum (with me included, hospital seems lofty ).

|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!|

|Dueeast||My theory is; You get waves or waves back only if the other Jeep see's you. People excited about driving a Jeep tend to see other Jeeps, (hence the wave). But, if your just going through the motions, fixated on the car in front of you, you won't see another Jeep, much less someone waving.|

|kmrboston||I'm here!!! I'm a soccer playing soccer mom of three girls and I wave! Only get waves back about 50% of the time and always from the men. Not sure if the other moms are just in their own little world while driving. My husband says I'm a little over zealous with noticing the other Jeeps though!|
