XJ owners are friendly, JK owners are not...

I have to admit I love my Jeeps, LOL ... who doesn't!!!! But one thing i have noticed since we got my wife her new JK, and get rid of the old TJ. The JK owners aer not as nice as the XJ owners, I mean I go onto their forum, and it is always someone being nasty about something, and you guys here are like buds I have know my whole life. LOL Is it just me? I wave to other Jeep owners when I am driving the JK, and I hardly ever get a wave back, and I wave driving the XJ and do it to any modded Jeep and they are all waving back? LOL have any of guys noticed this behavior?

we xj owners have to stick together, imo other jeepers look down on the xj until we pull them out on the trail. but that's just the impression i get anyway. XJ's forever!

I've seen that with other Jeeps too. My MJ gets the wave from guys driving older XJs, but not the newer XJs or Wranglers, etc.

I've noticed this with Harley riders as well. They'll throw a sign at fellow Harleys, but if a Honda guy throws a sign they usually ignore them.

Its all part of being in a group. My group is cool. Yours sucks.

LOL I sell Jeeps for a living, and LOL they are not the atypical Jeep buyers, to say the least. I actually can't stand dealing with a good protion of them.. LOL. The really sucky part is, I rarely get to really talk about a Jeep for what a Jeep can do. You know I can talk about ABS, and rear DVD, and so on.. But I want to talk about lockers and Dana 44's and lifts, and the rubicon trail and so on.. LOL I can affirm the buyers for sure.. LOL, I actually sold Xj's new too, I am showing my age now. I drive the JK down the road, and the fellow JK'ers don't even wave, THEY DONT HAVE A CLUE, I beleive. I can get a few TJ guys to wave, and some YJ's. I wave to them all. The Harley thing too, I used to ride a crotch rocket and most of them would wave, and a few of them would star to wave and realized it was a rice rocket, and pull the hand down quick, I used to laugh my *** off...

the only ppl who wave to me in the XJ, are of course fellow XJ'ers, and other lifted Jeep models, but not always, and for the most part I have to initiate it...here is my wave to all you guys...LOL
