Requirements

Jeep Vehicle 

  • Any Jeep vehicle meeting the criteria defined in Article 4 of our Bylaws
  • If it doesn’t say Jeep – it’s not a Jeep!
  • The vehicle must have seat belts for all passengers, and roll bar or steel roof.

29″+ tires and a FULL SIZE spare!

  • While we welcome “stock” vehicles with at least 29″ tires (225/75R16), our club recommends having at least 32″ tires.  This size tire comes stock on Rubicon models and is an option on other JK models (either 255/75R17 or 255/70R18).  Most of the trails we run are quite difficult with 29″ tires and would subject the undercarriage of your vehicle to unnecessary damage.

Secure tow points front & rear

  • Again, this one is easy – when you venture off road you might get stuck. Without a place to throw a strap on – well…you might just be left behind!

A ball hitch is not a secure tow point for vehicle recovery!

Recovery strap (without metal hooks)

  • Not too tough here, either. NO metal hooks. They can become a “1 pound bullet” if anything were to break while the strap is under load. Choose straps with fabric loops appropriately rated for your vehicles gross weight. The strap of choice is usually 20 feet long with a rating of 20,000 lbs.

Fire extinguisher

  • Your Jeep is insured, but the forests are not. If a fire were to start it would be ‘extremely’ difficult for assistance to reach the fire. Your unit should be rated for A, B, and C class fires. That’s electrical, gas/oil, and wood/paper.

First aid kit, just in case!

  • No explanation needed.

FRS Radio

  • Beginning in 2018 our club will be officially using FRS radios.  These radios are widely available in most stores and online and require no maintenance beyond recharging the batteries.  
  • Having a radio is not only a requirement for safety, it’s a requirement to get the most fun out of the off road experience.

A good sense of humor and a big smile in case you get stuck!!!

  • We’re here to have fun!

Guest Jeeps are only allowed with the consent of either the club President or Vice President and must meet all of the above criteria!

We will work with you to get you on and off the trail!!
