I have no idea what the 'Wrangler Sign' is, but in my head, I imagine it looks a lot like a moron flashing gang-signs.

I tell offended women that my shocker t-shirt is actually just a Jerry Garcia shirt

(He was missing half of his ring finger on his right hand, perma-shocker)


EDIT: Oh yeah, Ive never seen a "wrangler sign", just Jeep waves, which around here are usually 2 fingers off the wheel or 2 fingers extended out of the side where a door would usually be, kind of like the motorcycle wave.

LOL, I've never seen anyone give the "wrangler sign" but I sure as hell wouldn't be throwing the shocker around... you may tick off some people. & I especially wouldn't want to do that to the large guys that may be letting their girl drive the Jeep!

I'm in Central Florida also, maybe they are just giving the two finger lazy wave!

I get a lot of people that wave, and a lot that don't. But they are slowly getting it.

A 2 finger wave at an angle is nothing more than a I think I'm cool/lazy wave.

Wragler wave

i now have all three kids waving at every jeep, my wife hates it when she is in her van and the three kids wave and scream "JEEP - I waved first"

The 2 year old unfortunately thinks that every tool shed shaped vehicle is a jeep, she will learn
