Before we registered as the Road Legal Four Wheel Drive Association, we were registered as Wrangler Riders (Sheboygan) and Wrangler Riders Allenton. Wrangler Riders ran until Dec. 31st, 2018 when we then switched over to Road Legal Four Wheel Drive Association. Wrangler Riders is now run as a DBA of RL4WDA to avoid excessive filings and fees. On annual reports, Wrangler Riders is listed as a segregated account for SEWI trail efforts. Links to each of the non-profit clubs are above for archival purposes. Final paperwork for Wrangler Riders Allenton were filed 10/18. Final Wrangler Riders paperwork filed 4/19. While RL4WD retains the logo rights, If a local group of members wishes to restart Wrangler Riders as it's own entity, we've cleared the name to do so. If it's run as a chapter of RL4WDA, the advisory board will vote to allocate the segregated Wrangler Rider fund as seed money to help restart this.
