jeep wave

Noticed lately, most wrangler drives will give a friendly wave as you pass! Cherokees and such not so much.

amusingly enough, there's actually a website that is dedicated to this informal gesture of goodwill between jeepers! http://www.jeepwave.com/ to check it out!

I dont think the jeep wave is standard in my area. I never wave or get waved at. however one guy at walmart went as far as to honk and holler out the window to get a return wave. i wasn't looking for it so i didn't see it.

I wave at nearly all the wrangler i see, unless it's a gal in a JK unlimited..I waved at a guy this afternoon with 35's and other mods while he was at a light and he just stared at me as i drove by with what looked like a glaring face behind sunglasses.

unbelievably, I drive either the big truck or wife's Yukon and still wave at Jeeps.. like they see me and are going to wave back.. hell of a habit.. but it has become automatic now.

Ha Ha Ha, the wave.... I wave, yes I do. But, only to other TJ's, and I keep an eye on drivers of Cj's andYj's. If they wave I wave back to them also, becasue they are in the same category of the jeep family(well, kind of, but let's not argue semantics).
What I don't understand, is when Liberty's and Patriot's and other JEEP wannabe malcontents throw the wave.
They always have this look on their face like a picked on 17yr old trying to save face with the cool guy. Smiling way too much and probably wearing socks with sandals. I'm sorry, but to wave to these would be to accept them into the jeep family, and to accept them into the family would be like Sylvester Stallone hanging out with Ru Paul. I won't wave to these, that's just gay.

Really?...

I usually just return the wave nowadays, too many let downs from guys like bjorn here...

I don't think I've ever waved at a cherokee since I hardely ever see ones that are lifted and the ones that are stock don't wave back. Actually I haved waved a few cherokees but their my friends and actually have lifted ones.
