May be a silly question but I’m new to forum and Jeep-waiting on delivery date. Anyway, what EXACTLY is the Jeep wave?

There’s a video literally a few pages back.

Pass a fellow Wrangler owner and use you hand to wave to them.

So, I've read repeatedly about the Jeep Wave and thought it was kind of cool. A fellowship of sorts between like-minded enthusiasts/fans. Having ridden motorcycles for years, I figured it was similar to what I experience on two wheels. I have to say, I'm starting to think it's a myth. It seems no one in my neck of the woods is eager to wave from their Jeep to me in mine. Any of you in Southern California consistently waving and getting waves? Maybe I'm doing it wrong. It's half your body out the window with both hands outstretched and enthusiastic jazz hands, right? I'm going to be so embarrassed if it's supposed to be spirit fingers and I've been doing it wrong this whole time.
I was Newbie when I bought my Jeep. I did notice other Jeeps waving to me. I finally asked around and Jeep owners wave to each other. I live in Texas outside Dallas some and we all wave.

In Vancouver every second vehicle is a wrangler. I’ve seen one wave since purchasing.

Newb (to Jeeps - first one purchased this past weekend)... We noticed it as soon as we left the lot! Lots of Jeeps in this area of Texas, and everyone seemed to wave. At first we thought we knew them but did not recognize them, but then it hit us... all were in Jeeps. I should have known being a motorcyclist... Now should I wave a Gladiators and Renegades?

How long have Jeeps been prominent up there?

I live in So Cal, DONT JUDGE! I'm CO raised ;) . . . anyway, I live close to the Mission In San Juan Capistrano, and the majority of waves I see are from anyone with a < 10-year old Jeep, with at least minor modification. Some of the heavier Mod'ed Jeep won't even look at me.

I think they’ve been popular here for some time. Everyone in BC wants to look like a true outdoorsman at all times. Ready to hike up a mountain the first chance they get, or fight for the release of whatever the latest marine life shows up at the aquarium. It’s pretty hilarious.

A guy in a GMC truck waved at me yesterday morning , I figured his other vehicle must be a Jeep. I waved back. Go figure.

I tried it at first, then stopped....seemed silly. Just because we own the same type of vehicle, we should acknowledge it? They wave, I don't. I like and appreciate the ones that don't wave more. Means they don't buy into the BS either.

Need a bobble hand in the middle of the dash. With LED lighting to be seen at night.
