Jeep wave

Hey all, I have just been wondering if I'm ugly or the drivers of the new jeep wranglers with the newer body styles are just angry.

I own a jeep TJ wrangler 03. So when I'm driving I give they jeep wave to the older model jeeps and they give me the wave back but not the newer models. Is this the end of the wave or is it just me, anyone else getting no jeep wave from the new jeeps?

Ah, another wave thread.

The Jeep wave tradition arose not from an externally directed decree that Jeep owners should wave to one another. It rose from Jeep owners waving to one another as a sign of recognition, friendliness and kinship.

Food for thought:

1.) You have to know about the "Jeep wave" to recognize one from some person just motioning in your direction. Not everyone knows about the "Jeep wave". The wave is unofficial, it is more of a club which you join by word of mouth.
2.) You have to want to participate in the wave. Some people know about it, but don't care about being in the "wave club". Some people just have bad days and don't feel all chipper enough to wave.
3.) You have to see a wave to be able to return the wave.
4.) Sometimes there are much more important things to be concerned with on the road than waving at other people who are driving Jeeps.

So, wave to show friendliness and Jeep kinship. If the other driver recognizes your wave and returns it then you just met someone in the "club". If you don't get a wave in return don't get your panties in a bunch.

Just enjoy your Jeep.

I don't wave at Jeep owners who start Jeep wave threads.

I only wave to jeeps with model year digits that add up to a prime number during the day precluding a full moon between the hours of 1648 and 2126.

1) yes, you are ugly
2) yes, it is just you, no one likes you
