    You see, many years ago, I test drove a Jeep TJ at a dealership. The sales guy told me that it was an unwritten rule of conduct, that all TJ owners waved or showed some form of communication (like the guy nod) to other passing TJ owners. Sure enough when I was out on the road for the test drive, other TJ owners were waving or nodding at me. Is there such a thing as a Tacoma wave? And if so do you do it?

    i started waving/"guy nodding" 2nd gen taco drivers in my area. and the ones that i've passed a few times seem to be catching on. it's kinda fun...i've found that it works better (they are more lakily to responde) if it's the same color or cab as yours.

    Well they obviously don't feel the same way about tacoma's as we do. If you're anything like me, you will notice them from a mile away. I don't care when I get mine, I am going to wave to everybody in a Taco. In fact I might start waving to people from my piece of junk civic.

    No. Too many douche nuggets drive Tacomas and I don't want them thinking I'm their "Brah".

    I do. I make sure I wave to any Tacomas with lifts, mods, etc. But it seems that half the Tacomas being driven around are by 40 something year old women. They see me wave and look at me like I have a d%*K growing out of my forehead. LOL
