Jeep Wave (full force)

I was out runnin' some arronds today and it was absolutely beautiful outside. I saw about 15 Jeeps in a 1 hour time period. Most with tops or windows down. I myself had al my windows removed. My arm was tired from all the wavin'. Takes some gettin' use to thatz for sure (comin from a 2500HD)...

Yep, on my way to work (NY into CT) I usually pass up to about 8 Jeeps along the way. I usually get blank stares in response to the wave but everyday I count. I was 1 for 4 today .

I went to maine this weekend and must have seen 40 jeeps on the ride up and back. Guess how many actually waved back to me...2. Needless to say I was getting annoyed by the end of the weekend.

Its good to hear that somewhere people are still doing it.

From what i have seen college students at UGA including myself wave quite often. I would say 99% of them wave. I love it. In my home town they are all dicks and dont wave! HAHA

I waved at every Jeep I saw for the first two weeks I owned my Jeep and I didn't get one back. Most just looked at me like I was stupid or crazy. Then one day I finally got one. It was pretty cool. Some people just don't deserve to drive a Jeep.

I waved today and got a wave back. The messed up part is after I waved and got a wave back I realized I was waving at a Jeep from my wifes 2001 Chevy Metro. I guess living in the south has it's advantages.

I get waves from most of the jeeps i pass,just keep waving and eventually they will figure it out.I bought my first jeep in 1983 a cj7 and everybody waved back then.I hadnt owned a jeep for about ten years.When i got my 99 last year i didnt know if anyone still waved,but they still do.Kind of cool to be doing it again.

Everybody waves at everybody on country roads. Even the lady in the Hummer waves to me. Our kids are friends at church. Since everybody waves, it kind of takes away from the Jeep wave. When I drive through Dallas I get a wave about %50 of the time.
