Offical Wrangler Forum Jeep Wave Thread
 
Not sure if this is just a North Carolina thing..(most likely NOT!) but theres def. this unspoken Jeep Wave.. so i was just wondering what your wave consisted of?

Mine is slinging my arm out the side of the Jeep in an upward angle..gets there attention :wavey:

I only wave at lifted Jeeps or return a wave if initiated by stock Jeeps. When I lived in WI Wranglers weren't that common and I waved at everyone and they returned the wave. Here in NC everyone and their grandmother has one so I don't bother waving at stock Jeeps because they all end up with that confused look. I also wave at any other vehicle that obviously sees off road duties.

It's an off road thing, not a Jeep thing.

Jeepin4life05 06-07-2008 08:50 PM

Yah def agree there..I don't give stock Jeeps the wave either unless they initiate it... as for other vehicles..I only really wave at other Jeeps..i.e cherokees that are lifted cause lifted trucks around here don't impress me at all..everyone and there brother has one lifted and they all seem to be really good at getting them stuck too..and it doesnt take much to spin the tires and throw a little mud on it...I'm going to keep it a Jeep thing..

HAHA..well around here you're middle fingers would get really tired then...

bpowa 06-08-2008 12:57 AM

i got tire and a bb lift the first week, just to wave, or ger one in return.

Smeghead 06-08-2008 10:35 AM

Ive noticed only people with modded Jeeps wave. Sometimes I left a finger on the wheel that way when they dont wave back (and 90% dont around here) its not such a bummer. And I only wave at Tjs and Yjs

rebelBullDawg325 06-08-2008 10:40 AM

i think the general wave here in GA, at least south GA is just to lift your hand off the steering wheel be flexing your wrist upward and picking up your pointer and birdie finger. thats just for some reason how everyone i know waves at other people when ridin down the road. when i'm in town i wave at all the jeeps i see. but when i'm in the country you dont see a car all that often so we kinda wave at everyone.

Triple88a 06-08-2008 10:50 AM

over here some people wave and most dont. There are many modded wranglers that DONT WAVE. I gues they think of me as competition and look at me pissed off. Chicago's ignorant people make me sick.

[TheYJGuy] 06-08-2008 11:51 AM

I'd say that about 98% of the Wranglers around my parts wave, 1% are just not paying attn. to wave, and the other 1% are too busy "being awesome" to care. Buy most of the Jeeps here wave. And for me, it's my left hand/arm out the window, rain or shine.

Yeah, I'm originally from central Mississippi, its the same way there, you wave at everybody.....

rthdtj 06-08-2008 02:21 PM

Here in Fla I'd say the wave is for the Modified Jeeps, the new JK's dont have a clue...

Jma20a 06-08-2008 03:39 PM

90% of the JK's around here look at you funny when you wave. other tj owners wave back but there are a few that don't. its still no reason to not wave at a stock jeep, eventually they might catch on. as for my wave the i just lift the pointer and middle finger off the steering wheel.

Jeepin4life05 06-08-2008 03:51 PM

I'm not a prude or anything I just don't go out of my way to wave at a stock Jeep..that is usually a sign that they didnt buy there jeep for the same reasons i did..but if they wave I wave back...

REUBER 06-08-2008 03:53 PM

HAHAHA

I was gonna start a thread about this....to show my wife...she doesnt believe me because no one waves here in MN...

We were talking about it today when i ran up on one and he turned off from being in front of me and waved...so i threw the arm out and over the top.....he had TX plates though :(

vin211 06-08-2008 04:02 PM

The SHOCKER!!!! :punk:

REUBER 06-08-2008 04:06 PM

i was reading the point system....

I get points...

Just wanted to point out that i had BOTH kids ib the back and forced the wife to keep her window open along with mine despite the whining from the back that there was to much wind and when that didnt work the girl resorted to saying she was cold...which i gave her a sweatshirt to cover up and the boy heckled

slf41002 06-08-2008 04:32 PM

I am in a small town and everybody waves at everybody else but when I am going down the road out of town I just kind of throw up a hand unless they wave first then I stick my arm straight up if the top is off.

tarheel 06-08-2008 05:00 PM

I just got a wave from another TJ as I was driving up the main drag at Topsail Island. We both had top off and no doors. The wave was full arm out where the door would be normally. No matter what the state of the Jeep I wave. Got a wave from a Willy's yesterday as I came over the bridge. Made my day since he beat me to the wave:D

Lemme see...I don't have a lift but I do have grill guard,rock rails,tinted windows,stickers and P235 Bridgestone AT Dueller tires on mine.

So you wouldn't wave at me????-----

If I wave at you and you don't wave back- I'm making a u-turn and hunting you down for a good old fashion---:bottom:

Lol..Oh you'd get the wave..I was referring to that fact that allot of people especially around North carolina ..theres just tons of jeeps..everybody owns one..and allot of people with the stock jeeps dont understand the wave..soo with that being said and being really tired of getting a dumb look when i wave at another jeep..i usually only wave at jeeps that are jacked up or actually look like there set up for something other then running to the grocery store.. but if you're really feeling left out..then maybe you should put a lift on it.. and as for the woopin..I highly doubt that you'd do something like that but you def made things entertaining...:wavey:

NOPE! I'll never ticket a Jeep. Hell, if I could have a YJ Police Interceptor I would! :punk:

And I hate when a Jeeper doesn't wave back...it doesn't bother me with stockers, because alot of people have them as DDs, but if it's modded and they don't wave, I really wanna follow them to their destination and beat the hell outta them :D

my point exactly, for a few years i didn't have a lift or any after market parts but i would still wave. a jeep owner is a jeep owner whether he has a stock jeep or not, non reason not to wave. if they don't wave back who cares.

bpowa 06-08-2008 09:13 PM

man on motorcycles its like quick draw mcgraw.. Wanna see who can throw the first wave.. Stock jeeps are like harley riders they barely wave back.

too into the image u know.. a jeep snob or a tough harley rider.
