Hey all,

All though I do see that this site is for great information on Jeeps. I originally looking for information about this Ducking Jeep thing going on. Since I have had a rubber ducky on my dashboard since 2002 coming out of a Walgreens and found that I ran it over, picked it up and put it on the dash of my TJ. Having never seen nor heard of anyone else having one it peaked my interest in how it all started out. My kids thought I was the "original" Jeep owner to start this craze. I don't know that to be true though and I do not go around leaving rubber ducks on other Jeeps.

I know this isn't a "serious Jeep question but if anyone would have any input it would be appreciated.

BR

Well, if you have a TJ, you should be aware this is a JK forum, so you probably want this forum:


As for ducking Jeeps, I have no idea. Probably just some dumb Instagram or social media thing for all I know.

Yeah, it's just a trend. I think it originated on tik tok or something. On one of the Facebook groups, I am apart of I stated that I would throw it in the trash if someone "ducked" me. Not trying to be a jerk (to be polite about it), but I don't like other people touching my stuff. I was always taught not to touch other people's vehicles (even if its a piece of crap) because it isn't yours. Right now its putting ducks on people's vehicles, next it could be something more permanent. Just my two cents.

I agree, I wouldn't want anyone opening the door of my Jeep even to leave ducky and I have duckies. My rubber duck "fetish" started just as a fluke you could say. So, you wont catch me putting ducks in anyone Jeeps. FYI: I love my Jeep! It's my third and I just love driving a Jeep.

I've seen it on FB Jeep pages a lot recently. Most of the ducks are left on the Jeep somewhere (windshield, step, etc) and not put inside the vehicle from what I've seen. A lot of people are excited to leave them and recieve them, and while I don't need to be "ducked" I wouldn't be put off if it was left on my Jeep somewhere, but would draw the line at opening a door and placing it inside. Just my .02¢

My wife has a Jk and we took it to a Jeep get together at a local winery a couple weeks ago. There she found a yellow rubber ducky on the bumper which we ended up losing because the dog distracted us from grabbing it.

Last week she came out of the grocery store and found a white rubber ducky unicorn with a rainbow striped tail. I'm not sure what the message is there.

Earlier tonight I was driving and we pulled up next to a 4 door JK. I kinda waved but paid not attention so they beeped their horn and the passenger rolled down their window and handed me another yellow rubber ducky.

I was slowly driving in a parking lot when another Wrangler drove toward me. He rolled his window down as I did. He handed me a rubber duck and said "You have been ducked". First I had heard of ducking.
