PatriotJeepers, Inc was formed in 2002



As a member of Patriot Jeepers Inc. you will receive an email newsletter that will contain information about the next jeep run (meeting spot, time,...) and happenings in the club. At the pre arranged meeting spot a driver's meeting is held to talk about the day's events. You will be traveling old roads to see scenic areas and mountain top views, that one might not typically not see with a typical 2 wheel drive vehicle.

You will be driving your Jeep in 4 wheel drive low range with larger than factory tires that are aired down. (31"-35"+*) Jeeps with Dana 44's front and rear can now run up to a 35"+* Tire.).*See bylaws In order to fit larger tires some type of suspension or body lift will be needed. We recommend a minimum of 2 inches of lift (body or suspension ) be used.This is highly recommend for 4Door JK's.along with a min of a 32" tire. We disconnect our sway bars to improve articulation, and maximize tire to ground contact, for better traction.


You will be traveling over unimproved primitive roads over rough terrain, at a snail's pace. Seatbelts must be used for the duration of the trip. Most jeeps use traction devices, such as a locker or limited slip to clear obstacles that would stop a 2 wheel drive vehicle.
To keep in contact with each other, we use CB Radios. If someone were to get stuck in mud or hung up on a rock we would use the CBs to signal the jeep in front of them to back up, and use their 20 foot nylon tow strap to get them free. Some vehicles are equipped with a winch for self-recovery, which can also be used to free others.

After a day of jeepin' during the summer months we use local campgrounds to spend the night at a group campsite. During these times we gather around a fire, and talk about the run, tell stories, and have an overall good time.

 

We are one of many clubs that participate in cleanups to help keep these roads open for everyone to use. (See Landuse Section for more information)
