Was down in Florida last week in a rental JLU and went from Tampa to Lakeland to Orlando. Waved at everyone I passed and not one wave back the entire time I was there. Sad!
the problem is with the JLs is that with those loose steering boxes if u just take one second to wave u could end up in an accident.

I have family in upstate NY and Jeep drivers there just don't wave - so much so that it's noticeable. Of course, that also may have something to do with my MA plates. ;)

The problem with the Jeep wave is that there are so many Wranglers on the road. The "kinship" feel works better with less ubiquitous vehicles. I gave it up a few years ago when the return wave percentage dropped (way) below 50%.

As a new Jeep owner, I haven’t experienced a single Jeep wave yet! I waved to almost all the Jeep’s I’ve seen and I think they just look at me strange. NY area. Guess I should stop waving - lol. Anyone in a 100 mile radius of NYC get/give waves?
In NYC I have gotten 1 in 2 yrs. Anytime your out of the city, you get more waves. Lol.

I regularly get waves. Most of the non waves are from stock wranglers.

Have you tried waving like this?

When I got my JL early 2018, I was getting waves left and right in the NYC/LI area. Over the last year its been non existent. Don't know why.

I get ur point. When I get a chance I will take the thing to the dealer ( still under warrante) but I already know what they'll say ...Oh there is nothing wrong with the vehicle it drives like a jeep should. One has to be weary of mechanics at times too. Especially when they tell u these kind of things
