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.

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..

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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

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.
