While I did score 70, but I have few questions.
1) MUD??? I live in AZ I do not have mud I have Rockrash!
2) 33" tires score the same as 40's???
3) SOA no point gains for going 4 link and spring over?
Nice work on the page:)

Jeepin' Wave Rules
These rules are an attempt to make it easier to facilitate the mandatory wave when coming in contact with another vehicle of the Jeep nature. Though there are several variations of the waving rules, the following were designed as an easy to remember guideline for when to wave and who should wave first.

Rule 1:
If you are a driver or passenger in a Jeep vehicle, and you come in contact with another occupied Jeep vehicle you should wave. If the vehicle is not occupied, the wave is optional.

Rule 2:
Be the first to wave. Don't wait, just wave.

Rule 3:
Be forgiving. Sometimes the occupants of the Jeep receiving the wave are not paying attention, distracted, or are paying attention to driving. We all know how you can get lost in the euphoria of driving a Jeep and forget about the outside world.

Rule 4:
Wave vigourously. When cruising at 55mph towards a vehicle going 55mph it is sometimes difficult to see the 'over the steering wheel' wave. Get that hand out and make it seen!

Rule 5:
When you are the recipient of a wave, return the wave.

Rule 6:
Sometimes Jeep owners forget they are not in their Jeep and wave by habit. When occupants of non-Jeep vehicles wave, returning the wave is optional, but usually a good idea.

I'm like you........I don't buy into the hierarchy thing either - they all get waved at whether they like it or not :eek:

Curse you people riding in your Jeeps waving at each other while I don't have a Jeep. :flipoff: :flipoff:</joking>
It's good to see Jeep people are friendly... I can't wait to get a Jeep.. I'm throughly obssessed now. I'm having dreams of Jeeps.

I shall brush up on my waving skills for the glorious moment I sit behind the wheel... Thanks for the post.

I don't know if anyone else sees this, but living in the Los Angeles area, the wave is iffy. Most drivers are so involved with just getting from point A to point B without playing bumper/fender basher with the next person on a cell phone while trying to lookout for the guy on a crotch-rocket-motorcycle-guy-fatality-waiting-to-happen weaving in and out between cars, that it's hard to react quick enough. Usually I wave to another Jeeper after we've passed and I see them in my rear-view mirror. I would say the wave is shared in 1 out of 50 or 60 meetings/sightings, and both of us are surprised that it happened.
SoCal traffic ettiquitte only allows a quick glance at other motorists, just to see if they are attractive enough to try and get a good look without them noticing. Or if they are driving a pre 1970 show quality car, and you are a complete car freak.

I would love to live where a wave could be exchanged and it not be seen as a "gang-sign" / be assumed as an offensive gesture / be assumed that one was wierd.

I'll be sure to wave at you on the trail.

Don't forget the car on fire on the shoulder and the six hundred people who slowed down to look at the guy changing his tire.

I wave, but I'm not from around here ;)

That's a cool link, Tiburon. I like Kat's guidelines a better though. No rules, common sense, friendly, "if you see a jeep, wave!" :D

And for you SoCal jeepers, get out of the city and into the dirt. Plenty of time to wave that way.;)

New Wave by Kat

Kat, thanks for the "new" Jeep wave plan. I'm well aware of the "old" wave hierarchy and what you have proposed makes far more sense. Thanks for a job well done! With the old way one had to think too much about it if they attempted to follow it to the letter.

I wave at just about every Jeep on the road around here... and get maybe 20% returned. Most every TJ up here is owned by some old fart(no offence to any one really) driving a stock Rubicon with a winch thats part of the "Rim Country 4Wheelers"... and for thier trail runs, its basicly a dirt road :( So I'm trying to form my own club up here. But when I wave they either look at me awkwardly or get offended or just don't even do anything.

My first experience with the jeep wave was a guy waving (which I returned), him then turning around and following me to the gas station. I was a little unnerved by it.

It probably wouldn't be as unnerving now that I know more about the Jeep community, though. :D
