    Default Do you do the jeep wave?

    Do you do the jeep wave? Just wondering, because I have driven around some places where everyone seems to wave, and some places nobody seems to wave.

    Also, do you wave at all models of jeeps, just lifted jeeps, etc..

    Get far enough out, and it doesn't matter what you're drivin', people wave!

    I wave all the time, get some strange looks if I'm driving my wifes Saturn Vue!

    My thought is it was GI's that started the wave. The soldiers loved the Jeep in the service, when it became available to the civilin population, it was mostly soldiers buying them, so....back then,wave at a Jeep you're waving at a soldier. And we all know how that is!

    Military Jeepers started the Jeep wave!!!!!

    I wave at most of the Jeeps. I usually get a one fingered wave back in return(It's nice to be #1). About the only real wave I get back are from CJ's and YJ's. I got a wave from a compass once. That was sure confusing. I didn't know if I should wave or barf.

    Some folks don't have a clue about the Jeep wave and I luv it when I wave (my wave is the 2 finger piece sign wave from the top of the steering) and all I get back is the old 'deer in the headlights look'! Guess they are wondering, 'why is that old guy waving at me?' Then again, living in the city, you come to expect this reaction. Different story when I travel away from the city.

    So to answer the question, 'I usually do wave except when I'm shifting gears'...

    I wave mostly at other Wranglers....GC's and Libby's not so much. I have noticed that in Woodbridge not a lot of people in Wranglers do the wave.

    Clink on this link for the rules.

    Maybe Miljeep can get the rules posted up on here somewhere.
