    HOLY COW!!! Dude! Your sentences need punctuation!

    PFC Da4x4Rocker, you have it right. I don't drive a car, a truck or an SUV, I drive a Jeep. I wave to other Jeeps if they are a CJ/YJ/TJ/JK and or any other Jeep that at least looks like it has been off road to include all FSJ, XJ/ZJ/WJ/WK/KJ and XKs. Now I do not leave my Jeep covered in mud because I have learned over the years that it is much easier to do PMCS on a clean Jeep than on one covered in mud. Hence I also get questions from other 4x4 owners about if I ever go muddin, or did I just build it for show and or some will ask me about the accident that caused the damage and I usually have a smart @$$ re-sponse which comes from answering those questions to many times from people who don't understand that it is a Jeep thing.

    I believe it started with the cj's. The WAVE was a way for a jeep owner to acknowledge each other's unique vehical. It just kinda stuck over the yrs.
    And btw Jeep's with mud are SOP.

    This is a very true statement.. When you hear a rattle or a vibration, just turn up the stereo. My wife use to ask what was they vibration and I would respond "It's a Jeep thing" finally after a couple of months she figured it out... Especially when everyone waves at her in the Jeep!!! SO YEAH I DRIVE A JEEP AND IT IS A JEEP THING!!!

    This "Jeep thing" is like dating a smokin hot chick, who is crazy! Its alot of fun, you spend too much money, your up all night ending up sweaty & greasy from it, your friends are jealous, you get admission into some sort of weird club... but it gets mad at your for no reason, throws fits randomly, has unexplained issues that solve themselves after you throw parts at it, and yet you cant wait to drive everywhere.
