The Jeep Wave Hierarchy

If you thought the Jeep Wave was just about a wave, then you thought wrong. In addition to the Jeep Wave, there is also a Jeep Wave Hierarchy. The Jeep Wave Hierarchy is based on a scoring system with three categories. The first category is based on the vehicle itself. This takes into account the nostalgia factor, the discomfort tolerance quotient, and the amount of owner dedication required to maintain the Jeep. For example, CJ models will rank higher than TJ’s or Cherokee’s.

The next category is based on what you do with your Jeep. Do you have your Jeeps top on or off? Is your Jeep covered in mud or sparkling clean? More points are scored for the dirtier your Jeep is and less protected the Jeep occupants are from the elements. Points may be subtracted for Jeeps which are sparkling clean and look brand-new.

The rest of the categories are based on equipment adjustments that you’ve done to your Jeep. Have you made any changes to the engine? Added any new tires or raised your Jeep farther off the ground? Does your Jeep have any additional accessories such as a snorkel or winch? This category is meant to separate the hardcore Jeepers that spend their weekend's rock crawling from the daily driver Jeeps.

The higher your score, the higher you are in the Jeep Wave Hierarchy. Typically a Jeep with a lower score is required to initiate the Jeep Wave, however, it is usually impossible to calculate another driver’s Jeep score in only a few seconds. What matters most is not how high your score is, or whether or not your Jeep is a daily driver or traversing the steepest mountains, it’s to be part of the Jeep family. And that is what the Jeep Wave is all about.
