Jeep's Badge of Honor Trails
The Jeep Badge of Honor program was created by Jeep to interact with the off-road community. While the program is geared towards Jeep owners, it is by no means limited to Jeeps only, and any off-road enthusiast with the right rig is more than welcome to participate.
The program features a point system that allows you to rise through the ranks. Although anyone can join the program and rank up in the app, only Jeep owners are eligible for physical badges, referred to as Hard Badges.
The ranking system is as follows:
- Newbie: 0 points
- Trail Rookie: 100 points
- Trail Explorer: 800 points
- Trail Commander: 2500 points
- Trail Pro: 4000 points
- Trail Expert: 6500 points
Fortunately, points can add up reasonably quickly. For example, simply checking in at a trailhead will earn you 200 points. Sharing a picture is another 20 points. Finally, commenting on a trail page will get you 10 points.
Check-in is a simple process. Arrive at the designated trail and confirm your location in the Jeep Badge of Honor Trails app. This alone will earn your digital badge. If you are a Jeep owner, you can request a Hard Badge, and Jeep will mail it to you, free of charge. Proud trail runners affix the Hard Badges to the side of their vehicles, showing off their accomplishments for all to see.
The program features 61 trails spanning 23 states. If you’re looking to scratch off several trails in a short amount of time, look no further than Utah. Utah is home to 11 Badge of Honor trails, the most of any other state, and nine of these trails are in the boundaries of Moab, Utah. Both California and Colorado host six Badge of Honor Trails each. The other 20 states have one to four trails. You can find the complete list of trails (as of December 2021) at the bottom of this article.
The Badge of Honors Trails have diverse terrain, including rugged terrain, steep climbs, and tree-lined paths. The app provides information about each individual trail, with a link to the trail’s website. You’ll also get a live weather forecast and the opportunity to engage with other off-roaders who have already run the route.
A simple guideline for Badge of Honor Trails difficulty is listed below. You should consider your skill level, and how capable your rig is before attempting a run.
- 1 - 3 easy
- 4 - 5 moderate
- 6 - 7 demanding
- 8 - 10 very challenging
Preparing for Off-Road Trails
At DV8 Offroad, we understand that off-road adventures are loads of fun. However, preparation beforehand is required. Depending on what difficulty level the trail is, you've got to have some kind of lift on your rig. High clearance bumpers, skid plates, and rock sliders are also important features to upgrade. On-board tools and recovery kits are a necessity. At the minimum, you should have an air compressor, tire repair kit, tow straps, heavy-duty gloves, a fire extinguisher, and a first-aid kit. It is also recommended that you have an array of tools including wrenches, screwdrivers, hammers. You will likely want to include spare fluids as well.
For the Jeep off-roaders, we carry wheels specifically for the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, two of the most popular vehicles for the Badge of Honor Trails. The DV8 886 Wheel has two sizes and three bolt patterns available, and has been tested to the highest safety standards.
