So I am trying to figure out if Gladiator owners are either.
1. Truck People not understanding a Jeep Wave and just wanted a cool truck.
2. Stuck up because they have a Gladiator.
or
3. Just don't care or pay any attention.
(These only go out the none wavers)

I ask these things because I have passed at least 10 different Gladiators in Ohio and have waved at each of them and do not get so much as a nod from them. This is of course while driving my 2018 JLUR so driving head to head you cant really tell the difference between them. I am still waving just not getting it back like I do the other Wrangler owners.

All three.

Its the same with the Wrangler:

They don't know
They're stuck up over the perceived "realness" of their jeep compared to yours (Modded angry bird JKURs on giant tires...)

or

Texting...

4. Irritated by incessant waving and just want to drive to where they are going, not act like they are in a parade.

wave if you want to don't get butt hurt if they don't wave back same as every other wrangler/cj

most new owners don't know about the wave they are first time buyers so you wave and they learn and figure it out or don't, or they were not paying attention and see you.

I wave at quite a few but the percentage is the same no matter which Jeep. Gladiators are badass. I’ll wave at any Jeep. Saying you won’t makes you the stuck up one.

When my wife is in the Allroad , she says she waves at Jeeps anyway. She assumes theyll know she is a Jeep owner. She has a masters in psychology . She thinks she knows what everybody is thinking.:facepalm:

Well to be completely honest when my Jeep broke down and I had to drive a Fiat 500 for 2 weeks, one of most liberating thing is not having to wave every 5 minutes, because where I live Wranglers litter the roads.. :CWL:

There is no way you can fit a wrangler owner's ego in a Fiat 500.... :giggle:
