Am I a bad guy if I don't participate in the Jeep wave?

I have noticed that folks with 2 door Jeeps wave more than those with 4 door Jeeps. In my opinion, a two door Jeep is a JEEP. While a four door Jeep is just another SUV.

Yes, I know that there are those with 4 door jeeps that go extreme four wheelin', and those who have 2 door that never get off pavement, but to me, a 2 door is just more of an experience.

I drove my Jeep to the beer store yesterday. 4 mile round trip. Got no waves from the jk-jl crowd. About to turn into my into my street, a bone stock JT Sport was all up and waving. I feel bad that I did not wave back in time.

The next time you see that TJ if you're driving towards each other you could both hold up your beers and "clink" them together. That would show far more respect than only a wave, just make sure at least one of you is holding up a CAN of beer and not a bottle. According to a close friend of mine two beer bottles can't handle the speed of two Jeeps going in opposite directions even when on the trail.

I wouldn’t think of myself as a bad guy for not waving- But my wife thought I was a bad guy for walking into a post when she was nine months pregnant in front of Victoria’s Secret because I was distracted. She clobbered me with her purse.

If Victoria doesn’t get some clothes on she ain’t gonna have any secrets left.

I don't really look at the people in other vehicles when i'm driving. I just look at the vehicle as a whole. So I usually have no clue they are waving at me.

Plus there are a damn lot of Jeeps on the road now with the JKs and JLs. I would be waving all the damn time.

I'll give the two-finger wave to other TJ/YJs but generally no. I give the finger to Gladiator owners though...

My take on it is the Jeep wave never existed. It was a Jeepers wave. When Jeep’s were Jeep’s you were sacrificing a lot of creature comforts for a lifestyle. CJ’s had shit heaters, shit wipers, defrosters, etc, compared to all cars at the time.

We waved at each other as a sign of respect for our passion. You owned a jeep then because you used your Jeep as intended, while giving up a lot of comfort.

Those days are gone, I still wave to Jeepers, they are usually easy to pick out of the crowd.
