The wave

I could see the Jeep wave when Jeeps were a small group. In my neighborhood there are about as many or maybe more Jeeps than pickups. Then they are mostly mall crawlers. One local group goes "off road" meaning maintained gravel roads. I don't feel the connection with them. I'm not trying to be Jeepier than thou, but after attending a couple gatherings I found we had little in common and less to talk about.

I'm not criticizing anyone. I'm all for everyone doing what makes them happy, including me.

I'd be waving like an idiot if she drove by.

The wave is alive and well around here. Even the JKs do it (sometimes). Not a lot of JLs around here, and those that are rarely wave.

It's funny when you come across another TJ, YJ or CJ. They really wave.

yes the older Jeeps and Jeepers wave....I have yet to have JL wave at me...Not because they haven't waved just because we don't have any JL's in the country yet haha

Couple of kids in a lifted, beat up red cj passed me on the freeway last week. They were waving like crazy people. Made my day.

With the weather finally turning for the better here in Michigan, and coming off of one of the best weekend weather days we'll ever see, the Jeep wave has been in full effect. 99% of the time it's the 2 finger peace sign wave.

My wife used to call me a dork for waving, now she points out to me if someone waves and I miss it because I was looking elsewhere at that moment. She is coming around to this Jeep thing! :D

My wife is coming around too. She used to laugh at me when another jeeper and I would wave. However, she asked to use my Jeep the other day, and it wasn't 10 min before I got a text, "I just got my forst jeep wave!". She was pure proud...she doesn't laugh anymore.
