    My wife's best friend just got a JKU a couple weeks ago. My wife asked me to look up wave information and send it to her because the dealer didn't even discuss the Jeep Wave with her.

    One of my wife's co-workers just got his son a TJ and has said something about installing a mud run on their property (not sure how serious they are but his wife says she's on board.) I need to make sure he's told his son about "The Wave" although I'd be shocked if my wife didn't already mention it to him.

    I've honestly educated more than a few salesman on the wave, gotten some incredulous looks like I was pulling their leg. Really? OMG learn about your product and those you're selling to.

    I still get my fix of being waved to even while the Jeep is down because motorcycle operators all wave to each other as well 😂

    When I went to look at our JKU the salesman at the dealership brought it up as soon as I sat in the drivers seat.

    The wife and I both ride motorcycles too. I can tell you for sure I've waved at a few bikes while I was driving the jeep and a few jeeps while I was on one of our bikes.

    There are a ton of Harley’s, Canadians, Vettes, Canadians, and Jeeps around here I’m sort of not surprised that most Jeeps don’t wave. Heck most Harley riders don’t wave, but that may have to do with me on a sportbike...

    I have no idea why Harley riders hate rice rockets.... with me on a dyna and him on a r6 you would die with some of the looks we’d get especially if we both pop wheelies side by side... I swear we almost got into a fight a night during street vibes

    When my WJ was my daily, I would wave at any jeep that passed. Every now and then would I get a wave back.

    When I got my JK I felt like a kid in a candy store with all the waves I got

    Who Else Hates the "Jeep Wave"?

    Coming from a motorcycle street/race track background and having owned both cruisers and sport bikes I understand the wave there. Even between cruisers and sport bikes there's a stigma between the two that you don't acknowledge each other especially if you're "hardcore".

    Knowing I was going to buy a Wrangler I knew about the wave in my late teens. I rode with a buddy back in the 90's and he got super pissed when an elderly lady driving a Wrangler didn't wave and went on a 10min rant. Now that I've had my Wrangler for about two years I've accidentally waved at a few people since it was muscle memory from the motorcycles but I noticed even with Wranglers there's a stigma. You don't wave to ANY Jeep only Wranglers. Using a buddy as an example, he doesn't wave at any Wranglers that appear stock even though his has a bunch of zip tied and rusted free shit on it.

    I just don't get it. The motorcycle wave was shared because you're basically acknowledging the inherent dangers or consequences of riding motorcycles and ultimately it's an unspoken bond even between bikers who don't know each other but a fucking Wrangler? High risk of roll over yes but that's nothing to wave about, hell I live in Colorado and I can't spend more than 5 seconds on the road without seeing a Wrangler. Might as well put a fake hand on the driver's mirror.

    I refuse to give in and I can't be the only one! Out on the trail I'll wave all day regardless of the vehicle because we are both sharing the same experience but driving to Lowes I just don't care. I can't be the only one right?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
