Fat Boys Jeepers, proud members of the Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association www.ifwda.org and the United Four Wheel Drive Association www.ufwda.org , has only been in existence since 2001. This fast growing club of solely jeep owners is based out of the Wayne County area of Indiana.
At that 2001 IFWDA Convention, Fat Boys Jeepers joined IFWDA with 7 core members. We now average over a 100 members at the end of each year. We probably have the largest number of dual members within the Indiana Four Wheel Drive Association with- Iron Horse, Ruffriders, Monroe County, Southern Indiana, JP Frog and 4WTF members using us as there secondary club. Being located near the Indiana-Ohio state line, we usually partner up with one of several different 4x4 clubs to host events throughout the year. They are mostly charity events.
The purpose of this club is to promote the fun and fellowship of enjoying the great outdoors in our jeep vehicles while helping others, especially children. One of the popular events we have gotten into is participating and hosting our annual 4XKIDS DAY trailride for the children at Camp Riley. Over the years, other charitable organizations Fat Boys Jeepers have been active with have been D.A.R.E., Special Olympics, Relay for Life and Toys for Tots. In past years, we have sponsored a raffle for the sole purpose to make it possible for other children, throughout the Fat Boys Jeepers membership communities, to enjoy Christmas. This may involve those children receiving either toys, coats, hats or gloves. What a wonderful way to start off the holiday season.
It is the "spirit" of giving instead of receiving, and the reward is in the feeling of helping others is what Fat Boys Jeepers is all about. Feel free to check out our website- www.fatboysjeepers.com . If you are into social networking, please Like/Join us on Facebook: Fat Boys Jeepers.
