The F250 "courtesy wave/acknowledgement"

I have always had my attention automatically programmed to acknowledge Ford F-250's driving down the road, but I constantly find myself lifting a few fingers off the steering wheel in a "wave like salute" to acknowledge other diesel owners. It's like the motorcycle riders always throw a hand out to the side when passing other bikers to say acknowledge them. Am I crazy, or does anyone else do this lol?

4" DP back exhaust, AFE PG7 Intake

I used to do it all the time in my Jeep. Never noticed anyone in Texas ever do it in a Super Duty.

I've done it some while driving, but get very little response. I've got better response if I end up pulling up next to a truck at an intersection. Usually do / get the head bob.

I've even tried to do it while towing my 5th wheel with other RVers. Similar, low response there too.

We do that here regardless of what we are driving. But its mostly with the ones with trucks. And the diesel drivers do it as well.

My wife says the EXACT same thing! Lol! I'll be in the middle of a conversation and then abruptly stop to say "look at that F250!" lol. She thinks I'm totally obsessed, ... And for once, she is right!

I'm glad i am not the only one who does this! I wish more people would wave back also, but I'll just keep on acknowledging them no matter what others do or don't do.
