It gives them the authority to buy the Jeep Key Fob, Jeep Hat, Jeep Shirt, Jeep Umbrella, Jeep Lawn Chair,...etc.

Yuppies are now moving from Harleys to Jeeps.

If you waved at me, and I knew you had started another "technical" Jeep wave thread I would wave back with one finger from each hand.

The PS disclaimer does not change anything.

There are separate forums for a reason. I'd rather not have to move threads unnecessarily.

Jeep Wave Rules
These rules are an attempt to make it easier to facilitate the mandatory wave when coming in contact with another vehicle of the Jeep nature. Though there are several variations of the waving rules, the following were designed as an easy to remember guideline for when to wave and who should wave first.

Rule 1:
If you are a driver or passenger in a Jeep vehicle, and you come in contact with another occupied Jeep vehicle you should wave. If the other Jeep is not occupied, the wave is optional.

Rule 2:
Be the first to wave. Don't wait, just wave.

Rule 3:
Be forgiving. Sometimes the occupants of the Jeep receiving the wave are not paying attention, distracted, or are paying attention to driving. We all know how you can get lost in the euphoria of driving a Jeep and forget about the outside world.

Rule 4:
Wave vigourously. When cruising at 55mph towards a vehicle going 55mph it is sometimes difficult to see the 'over the steering wheel' wave. Get that hand out and make it seen!

Rule 5:
When you are the recipient of a wave, return the wave.

Rule 6:
Sometimes Jeep owners forget they are not in their Jeep and wave by habit. When occupants of non-Jeep vehicles wave, returning the wave is optional, but usually a good idea.

my policy is to never wave at TJ's


that way when the mods FINALLY get sick and tired of all the whining tj'ers and ban ALL "I didn't get a wave" threads that result from my intentional snubs my diabolical plan will be have reached fruition.

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.
Lansdale?! I'm about 15 minutes from you! Souderton/Harleysville area. Sadly there are so few REAL Jeeps around here if you know what I mean.

As for my theory on the JKers, I think that the Jeep wave is a "Jeeper" thing for the most part. A "Jeeper" would be a person who has, to put it simply, been bitten by the Jeep bug. They have a Jeep because they want a Jeep and it's capabilities, not because they wanted a nice SUV to tote the family around in. So I don't think that it's just something about JKers, I think that the people who treat their Jeep as a car, and not as a JEEP, aren't going to wave, regardless of their model. Now of course this whole theory is thrown off when you enter waving at the driver...instead of to the Jeep if you catch my drift

Ridiculously true. I haven't seen a mudded-up JK unless it's on the cover of the Quadratec catalog...to which JK owners don't subscribe.

When my wife got her JK Unlimited she was told about the wave.
She waves at everyone in a jeep, and she complains when the youngsters don't wave back at her.
She has never been on the Forum so it was up to us to tell her.
It should be put in the manual or something.

First off

Secondly, the JK bashing, been around for a while, I've gotten used to seeing it, but it's ridiculous... I've driven jeeps for the past 9 years. I loved my TJ and I wheeled the **** out of it, but I just couldn't keep up with the rust and the constant repairs while in school. Made the move to a larger wheel base and stronger factory axles while I saved for D60's. I've been able to spend money on actual mods, not repairs. My JK hasn't seen the dealership or anyone's hands but my own since I drove it off the lot. It sees the beach and / or trails at least twice a week if not more and I plan on heading to Moab next spring.

But I deserve no respect from fellow jeep owners because it's 4 years newer.

Sound logic. Find somewhere else to flex how stuck up and snotty you are...
