Who says it has to be legal. My tires are sticking out and i dont have mudflaps either. Cops dont mind
You’re lucky if cops don’t mind where you live. Here in SoCal, I’d get pulled over within a mile of leaving my house if I had any tint whatsoever on the front windows, let alone the windshield.

New Jeeper here.
With forward collision radar a thing Jeeps could be able to wAVE @ each other in passing...via a headlight flash? etc...patent pending.....

I wave all the time specially to Nacho or Dozer? Jeeps. But my wife and daughter drive it more than I do. I doubt that they wave. So maybe it is owner vs borrowed?

I bought my JLUR with the 6-speed manual and my wife can't seem to remember how you operate one (after driving a standard for 15+ years) and for some reason I am not in a big hurry to retrain her. My Rubicon is called my mistress by my kids for a damn reason and I want to keep it that way! What would they call it if she drove it ... the pool boy?

I've been driving Wranglers since my TJ in 2001. I would definitely say the return waves have gone down since then. For me it seems like the 35+ crowd returns waves. I don't even bother waving at White Wranglers with painted fenders anymore, they never wave back.
Damn Saharas...

So I'm noticing a definite double standard in the waves when driving my 2 JLs. My punkin Jeep is pretty well modified with Wheels, 35" tires, 2.5 lift and Halo headlights. When I drive this my hand gets tired due to the amount of waves I get, and not wanting to leave anyone out. People go out of their way to overtly wave when I'm in this thing. However, I've had had my Nacho JLU for little more than a week, and it's still pretty stock. When I drive this one it's like I don't exist. Waves that I received are down 90%. I can even initiate the wav and people just blow right by me as if I'm not there..lol

I was in St. Petersburg yesterday with my soft top all the way back and I must have gotten a million jeep waves. Seem like when I'm living the #JeepLife, people are more likely to wave than when I look like I'm "going somewhere". Maybe I just look more when I'm having fun.

Better fix that! I already told the wife, if she wants to borrow the Jeep she has to commit to the wave. No waiting to see if they wave first, no discerning between years or models... no excused, just carry on the tradition.

Once I asked a rich Asian mom why she drives a Wrangler.

She asked, what a Wrangler?

I point to it, your car.

She replied Oh because it look safe.

Don’t think she’ll be waving back.
When she got home she told of a crazy white guy approaching her about her Jeep.
"I did the old what a Wangler?" in my best Asian and he walked away.... thankfully.......😎
