See lots of stuff around about the Jeep wave. The wave is alive and well locally here. In fact, when I'm driving my Dodge Caravan, I wave at the Wranglers I meet, out of habit. CJs, YJs, TJs, JKs, they all wave most times (when I'm driving my Jeep - not when I'm driving my Van).

How about understanding the Jeep better and knowing what is going on under your feet, to really appreciate the deeper meaning of the wave.

The following Chrysler Jeep site has a lot of basic and useful informaion Jeep - 4x4 Basics - SUVs, Sports Utility Vehicles, 4WD, Off-Road 4x4s including:

What is the Part-Time 4WD system?
A Part-Time system locks the front and rear driveshafts together. With a Part-Time system, 2WD mode should be used during normal driving conditions and 4WD mode is to be used only when off-road or on wet or slippery surfaces.
Can I shift into 4WD High Range at any speed?
Shifting into 4WD High Range can be made with the vehicle stopped or in motion. If the vehicle is in motion, shifts can be made up to 55 mph (88km/h).
How fast can I drive in 4WD High Range?
You should not go faster than road conditions permit.
Now, doesn't that Jeep wave mean a little more. If not, maybe this will help.
