Thread: Jeep Wave
A while back I was considering purchasing a Jeep. I decided to do some research on the net and discovered that jeep owners have some tradition of waving to each other. Is anyone aware of an OC wave? If not it may be time to lay out the ground rules for such a wave. If I'm not mistaken, old CJ's had some kind of seniority to newer jeeps, so maybe the 1911 would assume the roll of the CJ? I'm half kidding here, but seriously what's the etiquette?
I can tell you've been Rady8ed, you have a nice glow about you.
Never seen a jeep wave, but motorcyclists do all the time.
As far as an open carry wave,wouldn't that bebrandishing?
As far as the Jeep wave, it's definitely a Jeep thing... My best friend in High School had a CJ-5 (which he rolled) and then a CJ-7... Everywhere we went other jeeps waved at us...
The thing about CJ's being superier to newer jeeps has been fixed, kind of... When Chrysler bought AMC (parent company of Jeep) they made some changes to the Jeep... most of them bad and most of them made the Jeep a weaker vehicle... Those are the YJ's or Wranglers, the ones with square headlights...Then Chrysler finally got enough hate mail and made them better again with the TJ line in 1996, I believe... and put round headlights on them again... so the rule of thumb is round headlights on a jeep means it's a good jeep...
During the YJ years, a real Jeep guy wouldn't be caught dead in one of those square headlight things... They were wider to help with the roll problem, but that was the only good thing about them...
TheTJ Rubicon is supposed to be as good as anything Jeep has ever made... comes standardwith lockers and a lot of other things that Jeep enthusiasts add aftermarket... and from what I hear, the stuff is good, not just factory junk that you need to replace...

Ground rules for an OC wave? Is that like man law, but for women, too?
I saw a Land Rover the other day and the plate said "jeep h8r"...
Speaking of jeeps.
A coupld months ago I saw an '80s era Toyota 4runner - the two door model. It was lifted with some serious muddin tires. Also had the baddest river fording snorkel I had seen in a long time.
Emblazened across the windshield were the words, "You're right, I don't understand.":celebrate
Years ago I lived in an area south of Tucson out in the desert. Hard to say it was a "community" as there was no store or any other facilities - just a few dozen homes scattered on a few hundred acres of desert.
Everybody out there would wave at each other asthey passed - driving, walking, horseback, or on bikes.
As I did my daily run - either early morningor evening before or after work - I always ran with a rifle at port arms. Usually an AK or an M1A with magazine and loaded.The same rule applied - I would wave at anybody driving by and they would wave back.
I could always tell when the driver was nota local : no wave. Sometimes just a drop-jawed stare in amazement.
Around my neck of the woods, all the guys who drive vehicles like mine - think large people hauling 4WD - all nod/wave at eac other. Mutual Respect.
