Here in Miami... Every guy I wave at in a Jeep wrangler looks at me like I'm a freakin' ***, yet my jeep's the one with a lift, safari top, big 33 x 12.5 tires, and stick shift LOL. Chicks dig it though . Its a city thing I guess (full of A-holes)....up north, I get the wave or a honk almost every time.
When I'm in my CJ, most people in Jeeps wave to me... except for those wimmen in JK's too busy talking on their cell phone. But when I'm in my XJ, it's usually other XJ's and YJ's and select CJ's and of course modded ZJ's...

Remember: Owning A Jeep is a lot like having Herpes, sure it may act up from time to time but you'll never get rid of it...
The vast majority of Jeeps where I live are either stock grocery getters or mall crawlers who would never take it off-road b/c god forbid it got dirty or scratched. I wave to people who look like they'll return it but the only time I've experienced the wave is on a trail.
im a stock 2wd xj so people dont usually wave back lol. however i was coming back from wheeling some FS trails and i saw another older xj with about 3.5 lift and some 33s and i did the two fingers from the steering wheel wave and he waved back.
but the best story: a few days ago i was pullin out of a gas station and two younger guys in a 4door stock JK waved to me! it was pretty dirty and they were from NJ which is probably why because no one waves in Atlanta! all the wrangler owners look the other way when i wave...wtf?
I will acknowledge any Jeep enthusiast. The other day I was checking out a Wrangler at the light and right before he made the turn I noticed he was almost frantically waving. I didn't notice because his windows were so tinted.
Never Mistake Kindness for Weakness. What is desired in a man is kindness, And a poor man is better than a liar.
Sometimes if i cant see the person, say im on the highway and cant see over the barrier, i know people can see my roof rack. So ill flash my roof lights with the KC smiley covers on em. That way they see 4 yellow friendly smiles.
Theres a few jeeps out here in Rhode Island that'll wave, When I was in a cherokee Id just get scoffed at my this one guy in a street queen yj all the time, but my TJ gets waves. Theres also three JKs that return the wave, but most of them give me dirty looks like "You dont know me, dont wave at me." Ah well. I wave anyways. I remember the feeling of not getting a wave back lol
So now I wave to y'all!
