I wave at anyone who waves at me first.
I feel kinda silly waving first. I don't know why, I just do.
Congrats on the Jeep.

I wave at all Wranglers, I've noticed that more and more JKs are waving back. If enough jeeps wave at them, eventually some will figure it out.

Same here in Rome, Italy! I bought my TJ almost 2 months ago but no from any Jeeps yet....may be because here most of the Jeeps are Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Compass. Do you guys get waves from all kind of Jeeps or only from Wranglers and CJs?

Imagine a world without Willys and CJs!

Wranglers mostly, I only notice the others if they are modified for off-road.

I've had more waves in the first 4 weeks of owning my JKUR than waving at all models of Jeeps for 4 years in my WJ. FB is bang on about non-wranglers, unless they're modded... good luck!

FWIW, I've been in the Aspen area since Monday night and am stuck here until next Monday morning (work). Just for fun, I've waved at nearly every Jeep I've seen, about 20 so far-mostly JK's. Only one TJ has waved back.

An old Wagoneer waved back today, but that was on a trail and doesn't really count.

I get an give plenty of waves, both in the YJ and the CJ2A. People seem to enjoy it.

Sometimes wave to other like minded stuff (especially in the CJ2A): early Scouts, etc. The other day I exchanged waves with a 70s vintage Myers Manx dune buggy
