Jeep wave - myth??

Is this really a thing? I have only owned a Jeep for 5 months but I have yet to to witness the alleged wave. I see jeeps with Hand wave stickers on them. Having owned a 66 VW bus and a Harley, they are all about the neighborly gestures. Maybe Washington is just lame although there’s a million jeeps up here. Is it just an old school thing?

I think there's so many yuppies buying Jeeps that it doesn't seem to happen much but the guys that waved ten years ago prolly still do. I do.

Seems like SJTD has it right. A lot of people out there buying Jeeps who may not know about it. Ive always waved and still do.

I have an old cherokee cheif that never gets the jeep wave.. but my daily is a new gladiator.... My arm gets sore from all the waving, go figure. I guess the jeep wave thing is just for the JK and JL crowd.

Back in the day, the CJ wave was pretty universal, seems to have carried over to the newer versions. Us SJ folks kind of got left out. But among us, still common, as it is with the XJ crowd.

Kerry, ditto with the old VW 57 van and 76 HD, the old Jeeps are an exclusive club I guess.
