Dues for most clubs is in the $50 range. Basically nothing.

Id be very careful wheeling a stock Grand Cherokee, the aproach angle, departure angle and breakover angle is not good and u may rip up ur new jeep.
Id stick to seasonal use roads and forest roads. U may want to sign up for a Jeep Jamboree that has some easier trails. I know the Bradford Jamboree (penns woods) has two low level trails that u should be ok on. I wheeled my stock liberty on the lower level trails, had an awesome time but beat up my jeep pretty bad. Needless to say, I traded it in within 3 months of the jamboree for a wrangler.
