Due to all the yuppies buying JK/JKU's and dragging them through the 4WD Parts catalog and becoming "elite" or snobbish I don't wave first anymore, it is not worth the effort. Jeep wave is now dead and the "Overland Wave" is now alive!! (I am the originator of that phrase! lol) If you have a modified overland rig or cool rig of any brand, I wave. IMO the Jeep wave, at least in its original form is now dead. It has become that there are too many "snobs" thinking their mall crawling JK makes them more elite than a WJ-XJ-ETC....

So, I propose this:
You see ANY vehicle set up for Overland/Expedition, WAVE!!! And not some half-assed wave, I mean hang out your window and wave at them!! They clearly put the time and work into building it, it should be recognized. The wave is no longer vehicle/model/make specific, it is universal between Overlanders.

Now, Overlanders- GO OUT AND GET YOUR WAVE ON!


JB,
Out.

I fully support this plan.

Yesterday I saw a guy in one of those old 1980s 4wd Toyota vans, covered in stickers (personal favorite: "0-60, 11 Minutes" done in hardware store lettering). He didnt just get a wave, but a full on "Nice rig face" and a thumbs up.
I like the decal, (I've seen on a few overland rigs), that says, "Sure, you can drive fast...but I can drive anywhere!"

This is right up our alley! Go forth and WAVE!

(I'm already guilty of the crazy wave, and I can get a little creeper/stalker on the road, too. Ask @Michael. :grin:)

Get plenty of jeep waves even though the main rig is not a jeep.

I did see a post yesterday somewhere about a Red Aveo wave movement starting and being witnessed.

Pretty cool to just wave in general like us country folks do.

I'm waiting for my first crazy wave...
Having grown up in the rural part of Georgia I can attest to this. We wave at everyone. Growing up it was rare to see another vehicle most places you went unless going to town. Waving was just friendly.
I grew up in Nebraska and everyone waved. Guess it is the changing of the time
