well. now that I ran into this thread. I just want to throw something in. I know a guy, he is into landrover defenders for offroading, not in jeeps, yet. he owns a smaller used car dealership with repair shop in Waukegan, IL. he also has a lot of open property by his shop. He is offering his facilities for some kind of jeep/offroad club landing pad. He will be able to provide space to wrench, tools to loan and will have his mechanics available to work on your vehicles at some discounted rates. I don't want to be a middle man, if someone is interested in this, I can provide contact info. He is cool guy, he has an XJ on the lot that he is thinking about building up as intro to jeeps. He is looking for some exposure and good mojo to promote his business, that's his motivation besides the offroad passion
