I like the wave - I think it shows an appreciation of owning such a unique, fun vehicle. I will always try to wave at a fellow Jeeper and when they wave back, it does make me smile and makes it a little easier making that car payment.

Two hour drive on a two lane highway in a super heavy Jeep populated state....I zone out and miss quite a few, but not intentionally.

Is it wrong not to do the Jeep wave?
It depends if the oncoming Jeep has an angry grill. If it does, I NEVER wave.

Also, stock Sahara and Sport Jeep owners often don't know about the wave and don't wave back. I still will wave at them, though.

After over 25 years of doing the Miata wave, the motorcycle wave or or general wave because everyone knew my distinctive vehicle, frankly my arm/hand is tired.
Not meaning to seem rude to other Jeep drivers, is there an acceptable manor to say high without the wave?
No problem but do not forget you can always buy a Hyundai and become completely wave free .

I always get a kick when a Jeep driver goes waaaaay out of their way to give me the wave or flash their taillights as I’m towing my jeep behind the motorhome. Can’t help but smile and wave back.

I'm a first-time Jeep guy, and I have a lightly-modded base Sport. I try to greet everyone. Two off the wheel, or down and away motorcycle-style if the doors are off.

I'm particularly delighted when a big-time rock-eater waves back (I feel like I'm obligated to salute the superior officer first - and some rock eaters may rightly expect that I'm too much of a noob or suit to wave). But I don't wave to get the wave back - I do it for me.

Look - some of you may watch different cable news shows and vote for different candidates and have different beliefs than I have. But we agree on our love for this vehicle, and for two seconds to not be anonymous, anxious, angry commuters but to have something in common makes me feel a little more connected with you, even if you don't see me or wave back. It's worth the effort to me.

If you don't wave back, that's totally cool.

50+ years ago when I first started riding motorcycles, I waved to other bikers as there were not a lot of us on the road. Now that there are bikes everywhere I stopped. When I bought my first Jeep this spring and had it for about two weeks, my son asked me if I wave to the other Jeeps. I didn't notice other Jeeps waving to me till he pointed it out, but with every fifth vehicle on the road I think it's silly and choose not to participate, but that's just me.

I try to wave whenever I can, but in traffic, with the MT, I may miss someone.

Recently I was in western Massachusetts, and the wave is alive and usually waving there (the Mohawk Trail). That goes for old and new, stock and not. Down here in NYC, not so much. The stock Jeepers tend not to wave.

Is there a special form of wave or just any will do. Just got a HellaYella 2dr JL. Don't want to send the wrong signal. LOL

I wave at most jeepers that I notice, it just makes me feel good inside. Although I have noticed that most teenagers and women don't wave back. But that is okay I do it for my self and if it makes someone else feel good then that is a bonus. Same for when I ride my motorcycle.

Dunno if i'd tell others what to do, but recommend waving, gotta keep the cool parts of the jeep culture alive. I sure always wave, happy when I geta wave back, don't worry if i don't get one... Nice to get the wave on the road, nicer still if I get it on the trails.

I have never owned a Jeep Wrangler but when I test drove a JL a couple of months back the salesman told me to take it out for a couple of hours. He said to take it home and take the wife and kids out if I wanted. Right around the corner from my house with the family inside I started to get waves. I excitedly waved back and my wife and kids started cracking up.

You do you, but I found it very cool. My JLUR is due early September.
