Waving to other Jeepers on-road

Hey guys,

do you all still wave to other Jeepers when crossing them on the road?

After owning my first Jeep Unlimited for the past month, I noticed that not all Jeepers waves to the others.

Not sure if it's the 4door or just some people forget or dont care.. or it's not a trend anymore...

What do you guys do and think?

Frank Waving to alllll Jeepers !!! :P

Hate the wave - whether on my motorcycle, or in a Jeep.

I think it is a very cool thing that is unique to Jeep. We should make its legacy live on.... Hi!!!

I have a JK and a TJ. When I'm driving the TJ, I get the wave. When I'm driving the JK all I get are strange looks.

I wave.

Haven't received any back yet though.
Maybe because I'm in an "uncool" JK,

or the TJ drivers are jealous.

Yeah I've noticed that I'm not getting that many waves back. Still though I'll keep waving. I figure that there are alot of YJ and TJ owners out there that prolly dont wanna beleive that the JK is out and therefore ignore it.

I always wave...if they dont wave back then I just simply subtract a few fingers and let them know they are #1...quick and easy transition

All you guys better wave, us YJ and TJ owners want you to wave back... you are now part of the Jeep family.

I'm happier when I am paying attention to my driving, instead of looking to see if a driver coming the other way notices me waving at them, is waving back, or is giving me the finger.

It's not unique to Jeep - motorcycle people do it too.

Why? Oh wait, let me guess - because they are not REAL motorcycle people?
