I answered "Yes, sure. It might be someone that knows me, or they just forgot they're not driving their Jeep". I think it would be rude to not wave back.

Any opinions???
I'd wave back. I've reflexively waved at Jeeps a couple of times when driving my Explorer, so it can happen.

Most other Liberty owners that I saw appeared to be soccer Mom drivers. LOL (I am a woman myself, but don't look like a soccer Mom. ) Anyway, I traded the Libby in on a TJ Wrangler and thought for sure I would now get some waves. Still nothing. So the Liberty theory went out the door. LOL I have seen several men driving Wranglers and not one waves, neither do the women. Course, I do admit, I am not an aniciator when it comes to waving. I wait to see if they wave first.

I also own a MC and always get waves from other MC riders. So the Jeep wave must not be a think in my city in CA. LOL
I would say I have to initiate 70% of the time. Not a worry. I just do it.

I did wave to a really young girl once and she didn't wave back. Our area of town has a four lane "main street" that isn't busy at night. It was just her and I going in same direction. I waved as I passed and she just looked shocked like "old many offering candy" or something. I laughed it off. When we both stopped at the next light the intersection was wider so she was 2 lanes over. She must have realized we were both in jeeps. She real sheepishly but cutely waved to me this time with a big smile. I would miss my jeep if I didn't own one.

Well, I learned to drive in my uncles Jeep Scrambler. Drove those gravel roads thinking I was something special with my drivers permit in that Jeep. We waved, one index finger unless you knew them then it was 4 fingers.


But it's less prevalent with more and more relocated city folks and younger people. But for the most part, around here in the country, we still wave. Jeep, truck, Suzuki Samarai, Taco, old Crown Vic, whatever. You drive what you can afford and we're all enjoying the outdoors usually in the same vehicles we drive to work in.



I can't understand the "Snooty" attitude about what you're fortunate enough to drive? Just because you can afford a modded out Jeep to play in on the weekend doesn't mean you're better than others. But that's ok, I'll wave at YOU anyway.

There was this guy driving an old pick-up truck at a parking lot and he smiled at us and was waving like we really know each other.

My wife and I waved and smiled back at him and so my wife asked who the guy is.

I said no idea but definitely owns a wrangler.
