The question is simple for those of you who participate in the Jeep Wave. For those of you who don’t know: the Jeep Wave is (usually) a shared greeting between Jeep Wrangler owners. It’s pretty simple, when you see a fellow Jeep Wrangler heading your way you wave. That’s about it. If they pull up next to you, you do the same thing.
I started getting used to it when I was driving the TFLcar’s Jeep Wrangler for Motor Mountain USA. It got to a point where I would forget I was in a different vehicle and I was still waving. Passing Jeeps in my Toyota as I’m waiving was quite a sight.
My waves were well practiced. I use the “Rock On!” wave, that’s devil-horns at the top of the steering wheel. I loved the “Hang Loose” sign when they were pulling up along side and the half salute wave when I was feeling frisky. No one else on four wheels does this and one Jeep Wave can make your day – seriously.
Here’s my question for knowledgeable Jeep folk: Is it cool for non Jeep Wrangler people to produce a Jeep Wave? I’m not talking about CJ-5’s or Willys Jeeps. I’m referring to everything from Jeep Gladiators to Jeep Renegades. If I see a current Jeep Cherokee and wave (if I’m driving a Wrangler) is that kosher?

By the way, I wanted to give a shout out to some awesome Jeep groups out there. @Jeepalooza, @TheJeepMafia, @TheJeepBoss, @JeepCheck/@ReturnCheck, @Jeep_Familys, @JeepVideoGuy, @JeepVideoGirl and @Jeeparmyusa and many others. These Twitter Jeep fans are very passionate about Jeeps and many of them are quite receptive to Jeep questions too.
