My buds wife used their daughters JK 4 door while her car was in the shop. Her daughter said dont forget the "jeep wave". Her mom said what's a jeep wave? It was explained and she said "I'm not doing that to every jeep I see!!". The daughter was pissed! lol

After telling me the story they asked if I do it to every jeep. I answered yes out of habit, but I never look to see if I get a wave back. I really dont care honestly. I get why many dont do it. There are so many out there now it's one big stadium wave after even a short jaunt.
That's funny, I was just going to say around my area there are a lot of Jeeps driven by young girls that were bought for them by Daddy. They have no idea about the "wave". :)

Your buds daughter renews my faith that the 'wave' may just live on through the younger generations.

I barely get wave back in NYC. I did notice however if you give the finger you get more of a response.

I'm originally from NJ so I agree the one fingered salute is highly effective in the Tri-state area. Guaranteed to get a reaction from that!

Dang, nothing worse than fake Jeeper's! :)
No such thing as a fake Jeepers!
I'd like to suggest that these people took the opportunity to realize a dream they otherwise wouldn't be able to. Jeeps are expensive to own and not every family can afford one. But by renting they can have the jeep experience at least for a little while. Some may even end up buying one in the future.
Let's not get all uppity.

"Can't Afford one" That makes no sense what so ever. If you can't afford to buy a jeep and that's the reason for not owning one, then how can you afford to fly down to the keys for a vacation and rent a jeep? Every car is expensive to own and you can buy a Sport for just as much as many other cars on the market. People who live paycheck to paycheck do not fly out on vacation and rent cars. It's not about every family being able to afford one, not every family wants to own one.
