Founded in 2005, Austin Jeep Exclusive (AJE) is the longest continuously operating Jeep club in central Texas. Our roots go back even further – AJE is actually the third Jeep Exclusive club in Texas, following the original club in Amarillo and the second in San Antonio.
We are a non-profit, family friendly club providing social, educational, and recreational activities for our members. AJE organizes and holds monthly off-road outings and club meetings, as well as other events such as social hours, beach runs, hill country runs, and out of state trips. We also provide support to local and national charitable causes, especially those with ties to our sport, such as Tread Lightly! and Wheelers for the Wounded – Texas.
How are we different from other 4WD clubs?
For starters, we’re all about Jeeps! We have plenty of friends who wheel other types of vehicles, but to join our club, you must have a Jeep. Another difference is that we’re an organized club!
We have articles of incorporation and bylaws, our members elect a board annually, we have scheduled wheeling and meeting events at least monthly, and although we have a Facebook page, we’re more likely to connect in person than online.
We really like to take our Jeeps off-road as often as possible and our more experienced members enjoy sharing their knowledge and insight with newcomers to the sport. The quality of our trail guides is fantastic so you’re always in good hands and many of our members are also skilled fabricators and mechanics.
Our interests are also diverse – whether you’re a rock crawler, overlander, or just like cruising your Jeep in the hill country, you’ll be among like-minded Jeep enthusiasts! And if you’re new to Jeep ownership or off-roading, you’ve come to the right place.
We love helping and growing the Jeep community!
