An honor bestowed upon those drivers with the superior intelligence, taste, class, and discomfort tolerance (exception to 97 and newer Jeep owners) to own the ultimate vehicle - the Jeep. Generally consists of either a raised hand waving or 4 fingers extended upward from the steering wheel, but may be modified to suit circumstances and locally accepted etiquette.
being new to jeeps I didn't know about the wave untill I was driving home the day I bought it. everybody in a jeep waves around here. My wife and kids are getting into to. It's kinda weird but cool. I recently drove to Myrtle Beach and my arm got tired of waving around Jacksonville, NC:laugh:
I am new to this group and I must say, NM has some stingy wavers! I am trying to change that around here in my 97 ZJ, which, buy the way, is an exception to the usual "97 and newer don't count" rule! My baby has all-custom offroading additions made by myself! Bring on the wave!:wave:
More than 75% of the time I wave, I receive one back again. We do have a variation on the jeep wave some do the middle finger wave, but I believe this happens mostly when one has just got cut off. :wave:
yeh ive noticed the peace sign aournd here ( just soutj of chicago) the land rover wave was the same when i had one of them , its always the clean new ones that dont understand what they have brought in to lol
I wave at every Jeep I see,whether the driver is looking at me or not.I also get a lot of waves back.
Funny thing,last Saturday I was in my wife's car,she was driving,I saw a Jeep coming and I waved,my wife thought i was crazy,I just laughed and said "it's a Jeep thing" lol
