Hell yeah I get waves from XJ's a lot too and of course I wave back. I think it's a "jeep" wave not a wrangler wave and that's simply because on the trail I see plenty of Cherokees to and they'd help me out if I was stuck, they sit at home on the toilet for hours and read a quadratec catalog just like I do lol

The other factor is the fact that the jks are selling more than ever. Many non-enthusiast types are finding the Wrangler as avehicle they want to drive.

These people don't care about or crowd lol.

I've noticed that I get more waves/responses from same modelled Jeepers, than anyone else. If 2 YJs pass and they don't wave to eachother, then one of them must be blind...First things I look at when I see a "Wrangler" on the horizon are the headlights and windshield wipers to see what model it is. If their round, I may or may not get a response. If they are square, I'm assured to get recognition.

That being said, more times than none, a JK will NOT wave, or respond to a wave. It's usually a female driver, with 4 full doors, a hardtop, and no modifications. It's a cool minivan for her, that's it. These people probably do not even look at any of these Jeep forums, have no idea that there is a "community" out there at all, and have no sense of "belonging" to anything. It's a car, simple as that.

I also ride a motorcycle, so I've been used to the "wave" for years. Bikers do it as a sense of respect, concern for safety, and ackowledgement that you are there. BUT, there is also a debate in the biker community, due to the "Harley Mentality." Do "real" bikers wave to crotch rockets? I drive a 1977 Honda Goldwing. The naked kind with no saddlebags, fairings, etc. I get weird looks, because it's a Jap bike that doesn't look like a Jap bike. Most bikers will wave to me simply becuase they realize how dedicated I must be to ride around on a dinosaur. Some look at the bike like it's a playboy playmate when we're stopped at red lights, letting me know that they approve of it's condition after 35 years.

I agree that it's not the reason you buy a Jeep. But. It is one of the few traditions that still exist, and you're right, it is pretty damn cool.

I notice this a lot around where I live. Although, I did get a wave from a cute chick driving a doorless JK. That was pretty nice.

It's usually the soccer moms who drive a stock 4 door that is spotless and never been off a paved road that don't wave to me, other than that, most other wave.

I was waving so much that I bought one of those plastic hands that rock back and forth when you pull on it...attached to my dash and got a few laughs with it until it broke
to the wave

What makes me the most angry is when I see a lifted jeep of any type and I stop to talk shop and they have no clue as to what went into making there jeep as awesome as it is or how it works
PS work with a guy with a 10000 pound warn winch unused I asked him if it was new and he responds oh that I don't use it I don't know how to

You forgot the 70 year olds that have a JKU as their end of life car. End of life car is like change of life but they have one foot in the grave..... Last weekend it was 5 JKU Saharas with 70+ year old guys in them. I got waves from several soccer moms..... Ok so I know them

Over the last couple of weeks, I have initiated some waves. The majority waved back that weren't mesmerized by the 10' of road, in front of them, or who weren't afraid to take one of their white knuckles off of the steering wheel.

This morning, while I was coming into work, 2 bikers passed each other, and neither one of them initiated a wave. Without doing any research (waste of time), do you think that motorcyclists have "wave threads" complaining about the lack of waves they recieve?
