Lol, the search button.

But I wave when ever I see a wrangler. Pretty much only wranglers, but if I see a nicely lifted xj, I'll wave.

Haha, I just think it's funny. There is a numerous amount of threads. Haha but I guess most are talking about people that don't wave.

You know, it's actually kind of confusing to own a Jeep these days... IFS jeeps might as well not exist because no true Jeeper will ever admit that the bloodline was somehow tainted, everyone who owns a ZJ or WJ gets crapped on unless they're running 4+ inches of lift and boggers because Grands aren't "real Jeeps," apparently you have to prove that you're a true Jeep enthusiast if you own anything newer than a YJ, and the poor bastards that own YJs get crapped on for having square headlights of all things, lol. IMHO, you don't have to be a CJ owner to get the waive,

I'll freely admit that I do, however, get a little pissed when I see some dude step out of a blinged-out JK with $10k+ worth of trail-riding upgrades that he'll probably never use because I know I'd be on the trails all the time if I had the same setup. Hell I even get a smirk/head-shake from some guys when I step out of my JK in a suit and I grab my briefcase out of the back (attorney), but being able to own my dream Jeep to go trail riding, camping and fishing as much as possible is part of the reason I went to law school and incurred an astronomical amount of student loans! Lol

I'm just tired of it all at this point... it's all a dick-measuring contest to those who would refuse to waive back at any fellow Jeep owner, and I for one will waive at anyone who waives to me first, even a KJ owner! All I know is that I still live by the Jeep slogan of "it's a way of life." I can't wait to take my family where no Town & Country minivan will ever be able to go, which is what I think it's all about.

I will generally initiate a wave to another modded Jeep. If I see a stocker, I'll wave back. Not that I'm an elitist or anything, I just get sick of waving to soccer moms and getting nothing back.

I always wave (unless spaced out). I don't care what kind of wrangler. I wave at toyo rock crawlers too, as well as lifted XJs.

No big deal to wave and not get one back. Good karma and being neighborly are good for the soul.

Hell I sometimes find myself waving at jeeps when I'm in my BMW. (I love jeeps I guess).

Exactly what he said..... Way too many soccer moms up here in Canada!!! I'd say about 70% of JKU drivers are women that consider there Jeeps as minivans.

I always wave. When my girlfriend is in the car she usually asks if I got one back. Usually the answer is "nope, rejected again"

How did we go from waving while driving the Jeep to "in the car". We don't care about waving in cars... we're Jeepers!

One of the first posts i read after joining this Forum was one about how 'it's a shame, no one even waves any more'. So being a newer Jeeper I decide to try and continue the tradition in my own way. I limit it to Wranglers only, any kind, otherwise I'd be waving all the time here in SoCal....




Hehe, I just got the sp thing

Haha, I do that too when I'm driving the wife's car. Kinda just get used to doing it. Of course right after I wave I remember that I'm pretty much in a mini van and they've got to be wondering WhoTF is that guy?

Haha. This is a good idea to post up a wave thread. I always wave at jeeps unless I forget. I wave at JK's on Mondays, LJ's on Tuesdays, TJ's on Wednesdays, YJ's on Thursdays and CJ's on Fridays. Now on the weekend I wave to everyone including XJ's, Yotas and BJ's...lol

The way I see it is that as Mr. Hand waves and others wanna be douchebags, Mr. Hand knows how to turn into Mr. Bird. Besides that was one of my pledges so I try to flip someone off everyday as well as keep up with the masturbating. Of course only some of you will catch that one.

To be honest I can never wave till the other jeep has already past. The jk is my 3rd vehicle, and driven maybe 4k a yr, so I never think of it till it's too late.
