OK, so 10 years ago, I had a 95 YJ, and nowadays I love my 99 TJ. It's my DD and my weekend mud-toy, and the reason for probably 75% of my swear words.
I've waved and been waved at for years, and I know about it. It's exciting to see another Jeeper with obvious pride in his/her rig out on the road. CJs wave, YJs and TJs wave, even TJ Unlimiteds and X drivers know about it. I've been conducting my own not-so-scientific experiment with the JKs, because they DON'T SEEM TO KNOW ABOUT THE WAVE.
Am I missing something?
PS I know this isn't a "technical" issue, but this is where I post and reply more than anywhere else, and the people in here seem to have more answers than elsewhere.
JKs, because they DON'T SEEM TO KNOW ABOUT THE WAVE.
I agree. Out here almost all the different versions except the JK wave. There are even several old Willy's running around here, and they will even wave at us "modern" TJ drivers. Not the JKs. Not sure what's up with that?
some do some dont i also have a 07 jk unlimited and it waves weather the wife or i drive it. some jk owners ar oblivious to the (jeep wave) but some do it, all depends ! my neighbor bought a 09 jk (truck ) she calls it and she said its cool that a lot of people in jeeps wave at her . and i explained it to her.
Another WAVE THREAD....They said the RAPTURE will start when another WAVE THREAD was started. Everybody run...
Agreed - The end is near
2004 TJ Rubicon - 3" lift, 1" BL, Brown Dog MML with Super brackets, 33's, Warn Winch, VanCo BBK - (Thanks MisfitSeven), IronRock tierod, Ten Factory shafts.
Future upgrades - Too many to list
1999 XJ - DD with 228k
2007 JK Unlimited - The wife's ride.
I moved here(lansdale pa) and did a wave test, not knowing the jeep wave. no one waved for four months. I mean no one. Back were Im from almost every person you waved at would wave back for no reason. It was sad until I got a TJ, now every jeep waves (Except JKs). Its great. I remember first jeep waved at me and I didnt wave because of shock. He then looked at me like he was going to punch me because I didnt wave back. You guys that are tired of a wave thread I get. But please dont let it die, Jk owners are bad enough.
Has anyone ever counted how many wave threads there are? I wave at all Wranglers and CJs. Never seen a pre CJ. I also wave at all modified Jeeps (XJs and ZJs usually).

X2 for waving at the Jeep and not the driver. Once JKS start aging a bit and the newer owners start adding parts and breaking things they'll catch on to the wave. But as long as someone else is doing the service on their jeep they'll never know. They probably call it a "car" too
Chris. I miss driving my Jeep. Can't wait to get into another one.
Folks used to say the same (they never wave, they aren't real Jeeps anyway, etc...) about the TJs when they first came out. I suppose all new iterations with the word Jeep on it will suffer this malady in the initial stages of the life-cycle, and wave threads will never disappear for this reason.
