The day i got my TJ when I was 18 I got my first wave (but i was already used to the idea of the wave cause of when i would drive my dad's modded samurai and cause of riding motorcycles), that was when it was stock. Now that i've lifted and done a lot of other stuff to it, i get the wave mostly from guys driving the other lifted modded rigs, but there is literally like only one other girl i think who has ever waved back driving a wrangler...its weird how that works..guess most gals in southern oregon dont "understand" the jeep wave...probably think everyone who waves is weird..haha
So in my town there are probably like only 2 gals who wave at other jeeps...me and the other one who waved back at me lol
No offense but in my neck of the woods its always seems to be the woman that dont wave back, either in a TJ or the JK... dont get me wrong there are plenty of guys that dont wave as well... always the soccer moms. i think the decal of the mirror wud b a good idea but with 33x12.5 the tire sticks out past the fender and my mirrors are always covered in slush in the winter time.

I got the [COLOR="Lime"][SIZE="5"]Jeep[/SIZE][/COLOR] thing, now it burns when I pee.
I do like a few others have said and wave at all Wranglers, CJ's, and modded Cherokees, basically most Jeeps that have a SFA. What's the harm in doing so? It requires minimal effort, and if none wave back, then so what? It's their loss, not yours.
I disagree with putting it in the owners manual though. The Wave should not be mandated, it should be given freely. That makes it easier to differentiate the true Jeepers from the mindless lemmings who do what they're told without understanding the reason behind it.

I have tried the Jeep Wave for years now but it has never caught on in my "neck-o-the-woods". I am vowing here and now, that never again will I wave first just because you are driving a "cool" machine. Owning a Jeep doesn't allow you to waste several moments of my time ,every time I leave my house. If you wave first I will be more than happy to wave back. It truely is a community, wave at your neighbors!!!!
So they don't wave back, so what? Continue that friendly jeep wave. Don't let what others do, or in this case, don't do, dictate on how you will act.
