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|

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.
|Today 07:56 AM|
Just do the wave and feel confident they are doing the same!

|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!|

You are not a JKU driving Jeep-waving soccer mom by any chance, are you?

This made me laugh. I remember when Apple became popular. The long time Apple users were so upset. Even my die hard Apple fan boy buddies had this "we got before everyone else" thing. In the end, they see what bigger markets did for their Apple products. If there was such a thing, they would wave. Room enough for everyone.
The coolest wavers I've seen are the die hard jeepers. The guys with the beat up hard top... if any at all. The scratches and dings. The nicest part will always be the new tires. The old shirt and scruffy shave. Smiling like an advertisement. Oh yeah. They wave like they mean it. I smile thinking of them.

|Cameraman||Yesterday I got two waves from soccer moms in 4 doors and they initiated the wave. Guess I'll start waving at all wranglers again.|

|SlightlyMoto||I knew they existed!!!|

Plenty of waving soccer mums and mall crawlers round this way.
Its the modified ones that dont wave.

|RoadiJeff||The poll in this thread is a bit flawed. I wave at all Wranglers but not all Jeeps. However, that is not one of the choices.|

Jeep-Waving Soccer Moms Unite!
Reading through the Official Jeep Wave poll thread, I began noticing a common theme - soccer moms driving JKU's don't wave...EVER. What? Hold up - I'm a soccer mom - I drive a JKU - I wave - what's everyone talking about?
So I got to thinking, could I really be the only one of my kind? Or maybe Jeep-waving soccer moms are just elusive (like Jason Bourne) or hidden in plain sight (like Waldo), but I believe they are out there!
So Jeep-waving soccer moms this thread is for YOU - step forward, confirm your existence, and help me clear up our reputation!!!
(God, I'm really hoping there's at least ONE more - lol!!!)

Jeep Wavin' At Night
I seem to find myself seeing alot of jeeps at night. Obviously, you cant see if the driver waves or not. I started flashing my fog lights to see if others will get what I am trying to do. Anyone else have a different way of throwin out that outside the box wave?

|.........||I've had jeeps my whole life, then I bought my first wrangler when I was stationed in NM and kept getting the wave and thought it was a NM thing. I just bought a TJ here in RI and got my first wave and it felt like I was back in the family!!! Haha I love it ... My lady thinks it stupid so I upped over and kicked her out!|

I used to wave to all Jeeps (this is Jeep #6 for me) but over the years have realized that some Jeeps seem to be in a category by themselves. For example the Liberty, Patriot, and/or Grand Cherokee very seldom return a wave.
A sad lesson I have learned is that there is a difference between "Jeep people" and "people who just happen to be driving a Jeep". (Yep, there's a story there).
The poll above has a misleading category of "To all Jeeps" when it really should be revised to (or another category added) Jeeps similar to yours such as YJ, TJ, CJ JK. It has been my experience that these are the ones that most frequently wave back. I don't wave to ALL Jeeps but do wave to all in the list just mentioned whether or not they are modded. Although I will admit that I usually only wave to a Cherokee that has been either modded or seen trail activity.
And what's up with those that say the four door does not wave back? It must be a local thing as most JKU's return the wave to me in my area.

As for the wave, if you want the wave to stay alive, just wave to the jeep, if its owner waves back sweet, if not, no harm no foul. And lately its the cjs that wont wave (im in a tj)
