    My dad just bought a TJ, it's not so bad just to cruise in, i mean, it is a chick magnet, and from my other thread, you can tell i'm not driving the blazer, but i now understand the "it must me a j**p thing" stickers. . . every other guy or girl in a wrangler waved at me like they knew me. . . none of them did. . .wtf?!! i think they meet at cult meeting in the wee morning hours and soon my dad will be sucked into those meetings too! ahhh. . . .they thought they knew me, maybe there was someone else like me at those meetings, or they just assumed i was already in attendance. . .

    calm down? its funny, around here on a nice day if i take the blazer out for a drive between the Confederate flag license plate and the big red K5 on 33s every guy in a lifted truck waves at me. I don't know ANY of them but they do. Not just Chevy's, Fords, and Dodges too.

    Same thing happens to me when I'm on my motorcycle... every other guy on a bike waves to me. It's cool, nice to see a little comraderie out there.

    I had a guy in a built TJ give me a wave today while I was driving my Toy. Just a way of acknowledging fellow wheelers.

    Last summer, I drove a 76 Jeep CJ7 for about two months while the Jimmy was being modified. All I can say that they are nice to drive around in the city with no top and doors, easy to see around. And I also got the Jeep wave, yada yada yada.

    BTW, they are just to damn squirrely to drive around IMHO

    I just like my Jimmy more. I understand the Jeep thing, its why I drive a Jimmy.

    Most of the time, the only people that wave at me are truckers, because I see eye to eye on them /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    When I drive the K I usually get a wave from other 4x4's, but I've noticed when I get a wave from a Jeepster (rare) he/she is sportin a Koolaide smile to go with the wave. Whats up with that? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Heh...if you really wanna see a cult thing get yourself a SCOUT! Before I upgraded to my K5, I had an old 79 IH Scout II. Bright orange..hehe. Not only would I get waves from other scouters, but if I was parked somewhere eating for example, they would turn off the road just to talk and share some stories! Crazy stuff. Chix digged it too. I really think it was just the color.....BTW.... Would any of y'all have any pics of a k5 painted "Persimmon Orange"? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Nope, but mine is Allis Chalmers orange. If it wasn't so hard to find a non-rusted out one I'd be all over it. Of course, that is part of what makes them cool.
