About the club
Black Hills Jeeps was started by 6 friends in the fall of 2003 that all had a common love for the outdoors, the Black Hills and Jeeps. This interest was the basis for the Black Hills XJ’s. We soon found, there was a lot of interest for an all Jeep club, this is the reason we started Black Hills Jeeps and we incorporated in February of 2004. Our mission is to promote 4 wheeling as a fun family recreation. To keep the Black Hills trails and all trails we use cleaner than we found them. To offer the Black Hills Jeeps services to the NFS if asked, to help them for whatever task whenever they ask. To offer the Black Hills Jeeps services to any emergency management services, or any clubs in the Black Hills or surrounding areas when ever they call upon us for any need to teach and educate all who want to learn to 4-wheel and the fun that can be had.
