do i have to acknowledge...
 
jeep libertys
the other day i recieved a wave from a liberty driver, and i didnt know them, not to be a jerk i waved back but i really did not want to cause to me its hardly a jeep? so...?

AzTJ 08-08-2007 03:25 AM

Its still a Jeep... just be courteous.

C'mon! IMHO, someone waves at you or your JEEP, you wave back! Even liberty's are JEEP's! They were probably saying "wow, what a cool Wrangler! I wish I had one!" Real Jeepers aren't snobs! (They may have had a Mr. CLIFFORD type beast in the garage!) Encourage others in JEEP love, it'll make the world a better place!

haha QFE. Jeep's/Wranglers don't have a monopoly on the wave! Where I come from, you wave at everyone. :D

jjseel 08-08-2007 06:02 AM

well said, OC, you da chick!

02Prove 08-08-2007 08:43 AM

I've seen a few built Libbys and they did wave.

erickpl 08-08-2007 08:53 AM

I even wave to Jeeps when I'm in my non-Jeep.

Levinoss 08-08-2007 09:21 AM

I'v been waving at other non-wranglers a lot more sence I got a wave from a range rover few weeks back. I try to wave while im in my mustang but most jeepers cant see me way down there with the tinted windows!

If I get a wave, no matter who it is they deserve a wave back.

I had a guy in a lifted f250 with 44's wave at me the other day. I was really taken back. If its a jeep wave back no matter the type. You never know when the KJ might have to pull you out.

tiny terror 08-08-2007 10:37 AM

Yes, you have to wave back... and for crying out loud get your finger out of your nose while you're doing it.

it was just a question and it has nothing to do with being a jerk, its an acknowledgement of one jeeper to another much like harleys and vetts. i was just wondering if libertys applied, thats all, you all took this and ran with it

tiny terror 08-08-2007 11:11 AM

I know, ain't we fun. (we're just teasing you, twelve)

I barely have any jeeps wave to me so I've not had to make the choice whether to wave or not. :D

#12 08-08-2007 11:30 AM

sarcasm is difficult to translate via written communication. i know your teasting, its just that i really dont feel like waving to every little 16 year old with a liberty, it kinda seems like the acknowledgement should be reserved for those who have an true knowledge, understanding and appreciation not just something they saw happen and they and thier friends picked up on it.

You may be right, but...I know some jeepers who are so elitist that they won't wave just because another jeep is stock. Somehow I find that wrong.

tiny terror 08-08-2007 11:50 AM

That's why I'm one of those who waves to wranglers and waves back to the rest if they wave to me. At least I don't have the bewildered "who the hell are you?" look on my face anymore. :D

#12 08-08-2007 11:57 AM

yeah i remember when i got my first jeep, and other jeepers were waving at me i didnt get it. i was just a rookie and thought they must have had a all jeepers drinking session and they were just super happy. it took about a month or so to catch on. my friends dad had to tell me

4point 08-08-2007 12:01 PM

I wave, If they don't wave back? they get this :flipoff: :flipoff: :flipoff:

Coulda been? ..................and put that phone down while your driving. :D

Tj Bunch 08-08-2007 04:28 PM

Naw it's mor interesting that way, Hey I did have a new 07 wrangler give me a wave but I was late on the return I checking out his rig and went right past w/o looking at the driver. My said "he's waving to you" oh well nice Jeep.

daddyjeep 08-09-2007 12:35 PM

I don't wave first at other types of Jeeps unless they are modified. If it is modified you know it is a real Jeeper. I will aknowledge any Jeep wave though. I wave at Jeeps when I am driving my Chevy Venture or even the Chevy Aveo I deliver Pizza in.

I do the same haha.

MOz 08-09-2007 01:13 PM

I mess with the Toyota drivers and wave to them all the time. I also wave to other Jeeps when I'm not driving my Jeep..(my wife thinks I'm a nut).

Look at it this way, flip it around to the other side. How would you like to be treated? If you wave at someone and they do not wave at you back how does that sit with you? You would most likely not feel completely OK with that...

Being part of the Jeep culture brings opportunities sometimes. It also brings responsibilities IMHO. If we all carried on like a bunch of elitists (which I'm not trying to imply you are) it would not cast the Jeep culture in a very positive light. I'm not saying we have to hand out flyers and sing songs all day but there is a general perception that Jeep people are friendly, generous people.

If you chose to perpetuate and contribute to that image that is your choice. All we ask is that you do not detract form that image. Hey, did you think maybe it was some hot chick trying to get your attention?

02Prove 08-09-2007 01:40 PM

I wave at everyone but I'm fat and ugly and need all the friends I can get.

Levinoss 08-09-2007 01:40 PM

Well said moz, every time I get out of my jeep any where people always stop and ask me questions about it. Im more then happy to stop and talk for few mins.

crafty 08-09-2007 08:27 PM

I feel bad in the mornings because not many jeeps get a wave--not before my caffiene lol. In general though I wave at all CJ, YJ, TJ and JK's. I will wave at other vehicles also if they are built and USED! :wavey:

Brian V 08-09-2007 10:11 PM

There's wayyyy too many yuppies in my area that drive wranglers, and dont wave back. I swear if it rained they'd all drown.... (think about it)










nose so far in the air......

Levinoss 08-09-2007 10:41 PM

LoL, I know what you mean Brian same with my area. I wave at them anyway never know they might not know.

~Lev

blueroo 08-09-2007 10:58 PM

It's the same way with older cars. I get a lot of waves with my Fairlane from other drivers with older cars. The first time I got a wave from a guy in a 66 or so Chevelle, I didn't wave back because it was a Chevy.

Thinking about it though, we are in the same "community" by driving older cars, just like Wranglers, motorcycles (ever notice how guys on Harleys and Yamahas/other sport bikes even wave to each other) and school buses.

Yea, the KJ may not be a Wrangler, but for that matter, a CJ isn't a Wrangler either. What other brand uses a seven slot grille, squared off wheel openings and sponsors a camp for owners of all its vehicles, both past and present.

Plus, without the Grand Cherokees, Liberties, Patriots/Compasses, etc, there would be no Wranglers.
