ABOUT

HISTORY AND GENERAL INFORMATION:

The Jeep Crew hosts Jeep related events that benefit other charities such as; American Cancer Society, Mission 22, Angel Warriors, Homes for Heroes, Smoky Mountain Area Rescue Ministries, St Jude's Children's Hospital, Sevier County and Blount County Animal Shelters, Appalachian Bear Rescue, Toys for Tots, and Back The Blue; Fallen Officer Kenny Moats Fund, to name a few.  

We are a well organized, family-friendly Jeep Club that specializes in Jeeping adventures in a fun and safe environment. We are not Jeep model specific, but do require Members to have a 4wd Jeep vehicle that is in good mechanical condition, capable of safe and efficient off road travel.  IF YOUR JEEP IS NOT IN SOLID, SOUND CONDITION YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO JOIN OUR TRAIL RIDES !

Our main Headquarters is in east Tennessee. We have Jeep Crew Chapters in Chattanooga TN/ North Georgia, North Carolina, southeast Kentucky,  southwest VA and the central Indiana area, and are quickly expanding to other states bordering Tennessee. We currently have over 3500 registered members. 

We have trail rides three to four times a month and socials at least once a month for our members to get acquainted.

Our rides are mild to moderate off-road travel.  Some trails are more challenging, but most are stock friendly. If we have a ride that is more challenging than usual we will inform our members ahead of time. 

 

We host 2 big charity events each year.  JEEPQUEST an indoor Vendor Expo, Jeep Show  and fundraiser for  US Veteran related charities on Memorial Day weekend, and JEEPTOBER FEST IN THE SMOKIES a Halloween themed Jeep show fundraiser for St Jude's Children's Hospital, held in October. Both in Sevierville, TN.  And two new Chapter events that include, CHAINED ROCK JEEP FEST, in Pineville, KY in June, and APPALACHIAN JEEP JAM in Marshall, NC in August.
