After a years worth of planning, AJE was founded in Feb 2005. As of July 2006, it is home to 75 paid members. In addition to hosting it's own weekend event, it is hosting the SWFWDA quarterly in Sep 2006. Members have worked to open up several private propertys to 4x4 access, and go out wheelin' two - four weekends a month. Members drive everything from new Jeeps right off the dealer lot to Monsters that never get driven on the street.
Austin Jeep Exclusive, Inc. (AJE) is a non-profit corporation which provides social, educational, and recreational family activities for the membership. AJE promotes, organizes, and hold outings, meetings, excursions, hill-climbs, cross-country trips, and similar events.
As a family oriented, and safety minded club, which endeavors to keep a good reputation for the club, Jeeps, and the sport of four-wheeling, drinking and driving (either on-road or off-road) will not be tolerated.
