Jeep Wave

So how did you find out about it? I was lucky and my stepdad has a wrangler and I bought my jeep from a used dealer who deals almost exclusivly with them. I didn't feel like an a** the first time a jeep drove by..lol..

One day...one day...

I try to be social, just do not get the same respect driving a ZJ. Every once in a while I get a return, I am probably the biggest a**hat for doing this in a ZJ, however try to uphold the tradition anyway I can.

Never really knew about it, just something I did, WRX owners do the same thing 95 percent of the time I get the wave first or get a return wave.

Yeah.. I tried to wave at other types of jeeps, but I found out if it looks nice on the outside they prob aren't real jeepers and I just let it go..lol..

Most Jeeps waved at me (excluding JK owners) when I had my YJ. Some Jeeps wave at me in the JK, though nearly not as many.

Yeah, that does tend to happen.

Wrangler folks think they are better than us lowly Cherokee drivers but I tend to wave anyway. Like stated above if it looks all shiny they don't wave and younguns don't either. I was always told the least nice jeep waves first but nice is a matter of opinion. I like the way mine looks but I don't have a straight body panel left so most would think I need to wave first.

I got that Jeep thing now it hurts when I pee.

Jeep should distribute a flyer with every new jeep on jeep wave instructions. Promote the jeep lifestyle in the ad campaigns.

LOL!

Glad I am not the only one in this situation, I feel better about my ZJ wave now.

Was fueling up a company vehicle and noticed a Rubicon 4 door pulled up to the pump next to mine, my first thought was to ask out loud, "what mods do you have in mind?" I thought better of it as I had no Jeep Forum cards on me at the time, just took the wierd look from the owner, finished up and left. Had I of been in the ZJ, maybe would have said something.

I never get waved at while driving my YJ, except by other YJ's, CJ's, and occasionally a TJ or two. Never gotten the "wave" from a JK, XJ, ZJ, KJ, or WJ. I only wave at "Other" Jeeps (XJs, KJs, ZJs, etc.) if they are visibly modded and obviously used the way they should (covered in mud, for example), and most times, I get a wave from anyone with a lifted vehicle on big tires, regardless of make.

The day I got my Jeep, I was driving it home, and a guy in a CJ going the opposite direction on a two way waved at me. I didn't think too much of it at first, but then it happened again at a light, and again in a parking lot, it happened on the highway, at gas stations, everywhere I went people were waving at me. This had never happened in my Honda, so I was really confused at first - till I realized that having a Jeep puts you in "The Circle". I wave at every Jeeper I see, apparently Dallas has a really good community!
