I love the Jeep wave, lets face it Wranglers are unique. Not trying to exclude other types of Jeeps but the fact is there not Wranglers. I do wave to them, but most don't seem to get it like Wrangler drivers do. Around where I live here in FL it is easily over 80% return waves.

My wife didn't get it at first and I had to explain it to her. The weekend we went to Jacksonville there was something going and there were Wranglers everywhere. At one light we stopped at I said to my wife look right, look left, look behind us, we were surrounded by Wranglers. She was like OMG my arm is getting tired. LOL.

In my area I see an average of 2 to 3 wranglers every single day going home for lunch and back to work, 4 miles each way, and then again another 2 to 3 going home after work. I wave to all of them, and almost al of them wave back.

We need this type of comradery/brotherhood among all drivers, if there was there wouldn't be near the crazy shit happening on our roads. Just MHO.

If you're of the finer gender, waves and smiles.

... others get a yard nod with some heavy psychoanalysis as to what happened to you that you need attention?

You don't know me, I could be really messed up, looking for my next project... :devil:
Bet you’re fun at parties.

Waved to folks on our country roads, waved to fellow motorcyclists, waved to subie drivers (after they vaped), waved to fellow runners, now a wave to fellow jeepers 😒 Sometimes it's okay to be antisocial.
A year ago my stable was 2 Subarus, 3 motorcycles, and a Jeep. Combined with living in a small rural Texas town. I just wave at everyone. It’s just an involuntary action 🤣

Boston, almost no one waves. Immediately outside of the city, most people wave. I can't help but feel like a rejected fat chick whenever I wave and get nothing in return.

Chicago area here and we're not all old guys who are bitter because younger kids have newer models. I wave at young and old and if they dont wave back it's ok with me. Honestly most of the time I just wave and don't even look at the driver.

Waves are hit and miss here in Ft Lauderdale. Sometimes I even get odd looks back, ...some 'get it' tho. Waves seem to improve as you go up the east coast to central and north FL.

Waves also popular with corvettes, motorcycles and boats, and all seem to improve when I cruise up the coast of FL, ...Vero Beach, Daytona, St Augustine etc.

Yes sir! Jimmy is the man ...

Repeat customer as well. This is the 3rd vehicle he's done for me.
Ya man Jimmy and Justin are characters. Hopefully we can meet up sometime.
