I pledge to give Renegade drivers the Jeep Wave.
My understanding (this is my first Jeep) is that the wave has always been a thing among Wrangler owners, specifically among Jeep enthusiasts really.why, you think they wont?
That's too bad.In my neck of the woods the "Jeep Wave" just doesn't exist. Wranglers, JGC, it doesn't seem to matter. I've given up.

I would never expect a response from a Liberty driver, just not the type of jeep for it to happen on, it's the mainstream jeep that just about anyone buys but to buy a Wrangler, you're just not anyone, you LOVE jeep.I have rarely gotten a response in the Liberty from any other Jeep model drivers. I think it is a Wrangler to Wrangler thing.
I will most certainly be waving at any and all Renegades that I see.Hey for S's and G's, as a Wrangler Owner(TJ - more $ in it then the retail of it) I bought the Renny for my wife who loves my wrangler and more especially, loves waving to all the other Wranglers(its the Jeep thing). I think since the Renny is a down played version of the Wrangler, the Jeep wave should extend its self to the the smaller version.
Just my two cents
Similar situation here by me. Jeeps are all over the damned place so most people aren't even aware of the wave. The built rigs are pretty good about it though - my XJ is lifted, fenders cut/folded and flat bushwhackers installed, 31x10.50 offroad tires, ION Alloy wheels, a Garvin basket with spare mount on the roof, and plenty of battle scars throughout the body. I can usually count on getting waved at at least once every drive.Yeah, mostly a Wrangler-only thing, at least around where I live. Actually more like a trail rig Jeep thing. I've seen Wranglers wave to big wheeled XJs a couple times.
When I had my XJ I rarely got any waves. I had really nice All Terrain tires on it but they weren't huge so I guess I was still too "stock" for waves.
I waved to fellow XJs, didn't always get a return. Some people don't "get" it or even recognize other Jeeps though.
Renegades should definitely start our own wave tradition. It's still exciting to spot one out in the wild.
