Membership Categories...

We'd like you to help us grow and invite you to join us. We offer several types of membership. To decide which one is right for you, take a look at the following categories:

  • CLUB - Our member clubs include many types of off-road vehicles. Lists of clubs are available on this website or by contacting our office. COST: $45 per year.
  • INDIVIDUAL - These members support four-wheeling without belonging to a club. Four-wheel drive vehicle ownership is not required. COST: $45 per year.
  • ASSOCIATE - These are businesses and other organizations who support and promote 4WD recreation. See {ln:associate membership 'this link} for more info. COST: $60 per year and up.
  • PERMANENT MEMBERSHIP - These members are especially concerned about the future of four-wheeling. A one-time, non-refundable fee of fifteen (15) times the current dues amount for the applicable class of membership. COST: $675. An installment plan is available by contacting the office.
