    So Weird, I get Jeep Waves in my Rubi...but not so much love when crossing paths with other Jeepers in the Gladiator. Anybody else? Gladiator envy? LOL

    Well since the Gladiator is THE ULTIMATE JEEP it requires a two handed Jeep wave and most Wrangler drivers are still trying to figure out how to do that and not drive off the road !!!!

    I get a lot of waves. 90% of guys wave. Maybe 5% of gals wave. I'm done waving at the ladies. It's either they are naive or annoyed with the concept. No offense to those female members or visitors that do participate ;).

    I have even been getting Jeep Waves at night in my Gladiator. Maybe because it's orange and it sticks out.

    I wave at every Willey's on up, if they don't I assume their focus was else where or hands occupied. Keep positive my friend! Positive thoughts lead to positive life.

    Maybe it's just me but I find myself forgetting to wave or wondering "Is that the same Jeep I just waved at a few miles ago?" and shrugging it off.

    Ever do a "late wave" and laugh at yourself after you realize there was NO WAY they could have seen your after-the-fact-attempt (especially if you have tinted windows!)? Yeah...I'm that guy.

    Lot's of jeeps in the beach town i live in. I get the same amount of waves I did in my JK. I give other Gladiators a real enthusiastic full kid wave, like a 5 year old waving at Mickey Mouse

    Living in Denver, waving at all the jeeps you see would not even be possible while driving in metro traffic, it's like one out of 10 vehicles. I tend to still wave to built/lifted jeeps or in situations where there is obvious eye contact. I'd wave at a Gladiator but only seen a few around parked so far.

    I was at a red light the other day, first in line to go. The cross traffic started to go and then I noticed a “wave” out the window... I was like sweet Jeep... oh it’s a gladiator! ... it’s a red rubi like mine!!! Shiz I need to wave back! Lmao

    Wave will come in different ways!

    Lmfao, my wife and I joked about me giving the jeep wave like GUMP. so enthusiastic.

    Now after a month, I do the cool bro dude 2 finger point.

    OH and you're doing something wrong if the ladies don't wave. I have ladies leaving digits on my truck, first time ever for that. Why didn't I have a Gladiator when I was 21?
