What we're about

Greetings!

Don’t want to tear up your Jeep Wrangler? Feel a little intimidated by the other 4WD clubs? Maybe the Desert Wranglers is the right group for you! We are a family oriented off road group which focuses on trail rides in the nearby national parks, monuments, and recreation areas. All the trails we drive can easily be driven with stock Wranglers, although 4WD may be required on occasion.

In general we don’t have any rules, except for the common sense ones: stay on the trail, stay with the group, and be safe…and you have to drive a Wrangler. We don’t require you to attend meetings or events, and we won’t require you to volunteer for anything. We dislike club politics and don’t do secret membership votes or meetings. Just sign up and you’re in. You won’t be “encouraged” to modify or lift your Jeep, and you won’t be stuck on the trail watching a bunch of guys crawling over the same rocks all day.

Membership fees not required! We have a great sponsor who has plenty of money to fund most aspects our events. Food/dinner and sodas are provided at the meetings. We usually have an unsponsored consolidated “refreshment” table set up at the camp site, and happy hour usually starts a few minutes after we arrive.

As mentioned before, we are family oriented, so bring your wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, kids, dogs, cats, neighbors, anyone! Our meetings are usually the second Thursday of every month, the featured day trip is usually the second Saturday or Sunday, and the camping trip is usually the third weekend of the month. Still not sure about our group? Check out the photos of our past trail rides. We’re just a bunch of Wrangler owners who have a common interest in riding the trails and seeing the sights near Vegas.
