Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

I noticed a post a few weeks back where someone was complaining about snobs in their Jeeps were not waving to him.

A few days ago I had to go to my brother-in-law's house and on my way back (about a 5 mile trip) driving my 85 CJ7, I saw 8 other CJ's and Wranglers and ALL of them waved to me. And of course I waved back. It was a beautiful day, temp in the 80's and low humidity. All of the vehicles had the tops off, or windows out, etc. I guess they were all in a good mood.

So, the "Jeep Wave" is still alive and well.

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

I just hate when i am in my pick-up driving around. I see all kinds of jeeps, sometimes i wave and each received with a "What the fu$%" stare. When i drive my jeep i try to wave at all jeepers in my path.

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

I did notice over my past seven weeks up in the Quantico area that the wave was alive and well. Now down here in Albany, Ga, that's a different story.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

Joey-i get the same thing! Jeep chicks almost never wave back at me. i think its just because theyre so intimidated by us Jeep guys that they dont feel they're worthy to wave. or maybe they just think were dorks...i dunno...whatever.

It's not a CAR, it's not a TRUCK...its a JEEP-get it right.

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

Hey Deadeye,

I started the post you're talking about and I wasn't complaining about not being waved at. You must have missed the point...it all about what makes a jeeper? Its not the wave, nor the ride, its how they feel being in a Jeep or owning one.

I get waves from fellow Bimmer owners while driving it as much as I do from Jeepers when in my Jeep, but I consider myself a Jeeper as it brings me more happiness than the Bimmer.

As to waving, I find it amazing how many times someone in a brand new TJ (or KJ) waves at my old Jeep and how their faces glow when I wave back. That is the joy of the wave, not "proving" you're a Jeeper, but voluntarily sharing with a stranger your love for the freedom of a Jeep.

Jeep...need I say more?

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

Thought I'd let you know the Jeep wave is alive and well down under. Jeeps are so rare though, I usually get waved over to chat. Guys rave on and on about how great it is to see a cool jeep and usally the hood gets lifted for the full inspection etc etc. Chicks sort of giggle and go all shy unless they happen to be in a jeep (most often a TJ with a car bra). I always wave first.

I'll go first!

Re: Jeep Wave - Alive and Well!

This is an interesting subject. Whenever I drive my YJ Wrangler the waves are 75% of the time from other Jeepers However when I cruise in my '75 CJ-5 Waves are 100% and most everytime someone stops me to ask about my CJ.

The funny thing is that the majority of TJ's I've seen seen lately are driven by grandmothers. You see more and more senior citizens driving TJ's in this tourist town.
