I only wave to Military Jeeps, CJs, YJs, TJs, JKs (yes I got a few back), and if I see any waves from another veicheal I will return the wave, but it was been my understanding that its mostly just CJs/Wranglers.

if i ever saw a jurassic park jeep strollin down the road as detailed as yours i'd jump out the side wiggling like a fish through the air.

that kind of jeep deserves a wave with my entire body, not just my left hand!

They are "ignorant" because they are not informed. If we opt to ignore all those who are new to the Jeep brand, they would never become informed. Thus, the Jeep community could slowly wither away into a miniature community.

I got a Jeep in 2008 and had NO knowledge of the community it had. A KJ waved to me once and I waved back with a questioned look, I had no clue who he was. But I eventually found JeepForum.com and learned so much more about the Jeep community and the wave. I am extremely happy that I have found this community. I drive a KJ, but I am just as diehard Jeeper as you or Joe Blow.

The "It's a Jeep Thing" isn't unconditional when you're born. Keep waving, someone will wave back.

if its modded then thats bull****, i got the rock on from some guy in a prerunnered out F150 today.

even the ford guys are giving me the approval. i wave at any jeeper thats looking in my direction and has a modded rig.

i also wave too the older folks because chances are they've owned that jeep for a long time or owned an older jeep and they know what the jeep wave is. respect thy jeep elders...

I wave at pretty much everybody... regardless of what Jeep they drive. I have owned a variety of Jeeps over the years. Mostly stock but all wheeled. From a old lifted CJ5 with no carpet, doors, or top to a stock grand wagoneer, a Jeepster, a ZJ, and others. I never know where someone is in live. Some ride stock because they don't have the money to pay someone to mod it, don't have the skills/tools/place to mod it themselves. Some mod them and never take them on the trails (they even sell stickers that look like mud for that "fresh off the trail" look).

Last night, I bought another Jeep... a used Liberty which will hold the 3 carseats. My budget doesn't allow for a 4-door wrangler nor do I have the tools to keep an older wagoneer up and running as dd and out on the trails. I doubt I will mod it much but will wheel it as much as possible.

I wave at pretty much everyone... 'cause I have been in both driver's seats of the Jeep wave.

I wave at them all, just so glad to have a Jeep again. My 9 year old daughter waves from the backseat - only at YJs though.

There are a ton of Wranglers of all vintages in my part of CT. Lot of college students in JKs, lot of soccer moms, etc. There are also a pretty decent number of sweet Jeeps out there. I saw one this morning that made my heart skip a beat. I waved to the guy and he didn't wave back.

In general this morning I was in a waving frenzy - probably passed 12 in a 1/2 mile stretch - and no one waved.

Then I realized. I was driving the Subaru. Which explained a lot.

I waved at a JK today as the driver was turning the corner. She waved back but with a really confused look on her face.
