I'm in Alabama, so we all got lifted rides down here. Although, the majority of jeepers I see are young high school age kids driving around in a chromed out JK, none of them wave. Other jeepers, lifted trucks, and even bikers wave at me.

Where I live out in the boonies everyone besides those who have moved out from the city wave regardless of what you are driving. On top of that I can only recall about 6 modified jeeps that I've seen in the area. I see the modded liberty more than the wranglers.

Yeah, I came from Bath Co., KY. Everyone waves. My wife, who is from Ripley, OH, where we live, now, thought it was funny that everyone waved. To me, it was normal, at least, then, it was. Nowadays, whenever I go back to visit, it seems like only the older people wave. Friendliness seems to be going extinct.

I wave. I like to wave. Alot of others wave back if not first.
When they don't wave , I like to tell the wife it's cause their jeep was so shiny they were ashamed.

I'm not looking for a Jeep wave from newer Jeeps, especially not 4-door "Wranglers." Especially since they normally have doors on, and tint, so I couldn't see them wave if I cared.

A Jeep has to be relatively open (doors off, or open-top, or something) to be able to even see the wave. Expecting to see, or care about, waving from enclosed SUV to enclosed SUV isn't what the Jeep wave was ever about.

75% of modified wranglers wave, 25% of stock wranglers wave and 25% of other jeeps wave. The newer JKs, I have only seen maybe 10% of them wave around my parts.

I haven't noticed any waves, But I do think about waving but don't want to seem weird.. I think the main reason I don't give waves is because I'm 18 and the ponies.. Could also be another reason not to wave.. Have yet to have my Jeep keyed though.. I would have thought it'd be keyed pretty soon after slapping those decals on.. Funny enough I still have more to go on.. Just too lazy to do it..

I drive an XJ and see lots of XJs and TJs and JKs around here. When I wave I often get waves back, nobody seems to expect it though. I have never been waved at first.

I wave at every wrangler that I see. Sometimes they wave back, sometimes they don't. I don't always have my windows down but I can almost always see if they wave their hand from the steering wheel.

Ok, I am new to this jeep thing, and yes I drive a JKU AND take my kids to soccer (don't roast me), but I wave at all Wranglers and rarely get a wave back! Is it b/c I am a chick that I don get the wave back?

Is it because you have tinted windows, and/or your doors and top on, that no Jeeper can see you wave?

This is the problem doing a Jeep wave with the newer Jeeps, especially here in FL. Jeeps were traditionally open vehicles, so a wave out the side (after all, you don't have a door there, right?), or even one inside that was well lit from the sun getting in (open top, Bimini top), was easily seen.

I don't even look toward newer enclosed and tinted Jeeps now. Number one: you can't see them wave - or if you do you have to look too hard for it, and that's distracting away from safe driving practices.

And then there's this: (Now this is the ugly truth - don't hold it against me) Most are fully enclosed with doors and tops - Many CJ & Wrangler owners just see them as SUV owners, not open to the elements Jeep owners. They'd have owned something else affordable and enclosed if it was deemed 'cool' - like if they still made H2 and H3 Hummers, but sold them for the same prices as 4-door JK's. As it is, the Jeep JK 4-door is the only thing on the market like it anymore, and are affordable compared to what the Hummers were. But if an owners rides around like they're in a Hummer or a too-cool-for-a-mini-van mini-van, they'll get few waves. Open it up, get sun cancer like the rest of us, and I bet they'd get more waves.

I'm as friendly as can be to newer Jeep owners when I meet 'em. There's a certain closeness in meeting or seeing someone face to face, and that extends to those of us out in the weather; that closeness doesn't exist when I can't see them in their dark boxes. Case in point: Just last week I had a friendly conversation - a yelling one at that - with a black guy in the next lane over, but one car ahead, at a traffic light. He was in an open Jeep, and I was in an open Jeep. Jeep wave? Hell - Jeep yell and say "Hi!" (after all, he didn't have any back windows to hinder the conversation, and was looking at my Jeep just like I was looking at his) "Neat ride! What Year?" ... "Oh, you want wheels like mine?" ... "I like your color the best."

If you aren't able to do that, then you may not be using a Wrangler as a Wrangler, thus the wave just doesn't transmit as well.

I fully intend to pop the top on it, but it has been lows in the upper 20's and high's in the upper 40's & low 50's in N FL since I got it. I actually have a Spiderweb Shade installed on it-ready for the good weather.

I also sort of maybe took it off-roading a bit in my neighborhood last night on a few lots they just cleared. (I realize this is nothing like rock crawling, but I am not sure I will go that far with my jeep.) My friend and I saw a bobcat run across the road and decided to follow it for a bit.

I really want to put new tires, wheels, and new bumpers on it, but it only takes $$ - so down the road a bit. If $$ were no object, it would be totally jacked up already. I have 3 brothers, so I guess I am not the typical 'soccer mom'...

I do see your point about the majority of JKU mom drivers and the tinted windows - I am sure there are people that don't see me, but I try!
