Stub, I'm pretty sure that you just said the word, "Yanni." I'm afraid that I'm going to have to ask you to hand over your 'Man Card' right now!!!

Hey! It wasn't for me. I have better taste than that. I had to get Pop-n-Fresh in the mood. :)

Can this thread be hijacked anymore than it already has?

HIJACK. RC- Got the Reid Racing knuckles installed. Sandblasted the orange and powder-coated them in a grayish-silver color. They are tits with the Dynatrac Pro-Steers. You're going to love 'em.

LOFL... Buuuuuump

New Jeep owners soon discover a tradition that has been around perhaps as long as Jeeps, the Jeep Wave. Some may think it strange or even silly, but before you judge perhaps take a moment and consider this:

During World War II the Jeep was always on the move, often running back and forth from the front lines delivering vital supplies or urgent messages, or to carry wounded soldiers, attempt rescues or bring reinforcements. Some say this is where the Jeep wave began as a way to know friend from foe or to acknowledge an officer without a salute that might alert enemies of a high ranking official. Or perhaps it was just a simple gesture from soldiers in one Jeep to another Jeep as they passed. A sign of camaraderie and respect between courageous souls in dark and dangerous times.

Other's say the Jeep wave began after the war when the soldiers returned home. During the war the Jeep had earned a place in the hearts of many soldiers and as a result, many of those who made it home, wanted to own their own Jeep. Often the drivers of Jeeps passing on roadways would wave at each other, as they knew most likely each other had served.

Finally some claim the wave began only when civilians started buying Jeeps and taking them off road. The shared fun and excitment of tackling seemingly impossible trails and obstacles in the nimble Jeep, naturally builds a kinship with other Jeepers. The wave acknowledges that shared understanding and appreciation of the Jeep's amazing capabilities and the enjoyment ownership can bring.

So next time you see a Jeep, give a wave and if you don't get one in return, don't be offended, just consider it a wave for the 'One and Only Jeep' and what it represents, our freedom and the brave souls who fought for it.

Holy Shit! Blast from the past. At least you didn't start a new wave thread.
