2 fingers above the mirror.

I need to get a CB still, will probably pick one up before my next run on the 13th. but I always wave to the oncoming, and if I'm the leader, telling people how many people are coming is usually my way of saying "Get outta our way!"

I've had as many as 23 jeeps on 1 run, and that's a lot of people to have to pass, so we were given the right of way.

I had to wait over 30min once on the Rubicon. Waited for the last two. kept waiting... we are like were the heck are these guys. So we started to roll and few minutes up the trails they are taking a "smoke" break. Cheech & Chong stly.

Some trails are very tight people might have to give way where they can.

I didn't read the whole thread but it seems its mostly the JK guys that are the non wavers more so bc most of em aren't jeep heads or offroaders. I'm a yj guy and I wave at everyone and its usually the cjs, yjs, and modded tjs that wave. I've even had a few yota guys throw up the props.

Really or maybe it's because we're too good to wave. That's not generalizing much. I wave at everyone. Sometimes I forget I'm not in my JK. Most modded Jeepers wave because they get it. Even the cherokees. So here is your wave from this JK owner.

Just noticed ur in PV. My good buddy lives in chino and I go up there pretty frequently. We should get together and hit some trails. It's nice to wheel somewhere it's not 110 degrees

Sounds good, let me know when you're here. 110 never sounds good.

I was in my Tacoma today and gave a nod and wave to this middle aged guy in a nice black expo/overland style Land Cruiser with a lift, ARB armor, etc. and he stared at me for a second and looked away. Not long after I saw a Sportsmobile in a parking lot and gave a big thumbs up to the driver and him and his wife both waved and smiled. Just depends on the driver really.

I generally don't wave on the road, unless there is a second or two of eye contact.

It may just be the country boy in me but growing up, when off the beaten path, we waved at everything. Hikers, people on horseback, tractors, or any other vehicle we came across on the miles of dirt before reaching asphalt. May have been just common courtesy. May have been people were nicer. Or may have been a slight sign of reassurance for both parties that the other wasn't a complete sociopath wanting to cut them up into little pieces and bury them out in the middle of nowhere.

My point is that I have never shared the opinion that the wave was exclusive to actually owning a jeep. That it was just how people out in the boonies acknowledged one another, that got carried back to the masses. Even now when off-road, I wave at dirt bikes, ATVs and passing camp sites. I always get a response from these folks.

That's how I was raised too! I grew up in South Dakota and on the rural farm roads, you did the two-fingers-on-the-steering-wheel-flip-wave I do the same thing here in MT now that I can drive, and even though I don't get it much driving in town, when I get out of town even a little, everybody waves!

As far as Jeeps/OHV's are concerned, I've only gotten it back twice in or around town; once from an older gentleman in a nice Cherokee and another time from a guy with a well-built 'Yota. Other than that, it's all been on trails. Those guys all know what they're doing
