Jeep clubs?
 
Does anybody know of any jeep clubs near Wheaton, IL

rjk5828 10-16-2011 09:32 PM

I think there are clubs in Des Plaines, Batavia and Rockford. Batavia would be the closest for you?

jkaufman_95 10-16-2011 09:33 PM

There is a "central Illinois jeep club" but I dont think it's very active. There is one out of effingham too. I've thought about starting one out of Decatur.

Illinois Jeep Clubs
 
I agree, there should be more of them. I live in Chicago, but also spend a lot of time on a farm in-between Dixon and Princeton. Would be interested in a central Illinois club.

We have a group Jeep Almighty that's out of Palatine. We're not crazy active and by far have a closed FB group and a public page, and a blog www.jeepalmighty.com. Everything is still in development phase. In any case, we're not really a CLUB but a group of people who wheel together from time to time and use FB functionality to announce events and post reports and pictures. If interested, shoot me an email, so you'll be getting alerts when we go somewhere.

Hey guys I saw there's a few of you around me looking for a jeep club. I live in Lombard and go legal or illegal wherling as often as I can but am still limited on where I can go. At the very least the few of us can try to get together and maybe get a little muddy and attempt to start our own club.

Are you a part of this group? Or know if they're on Facebook or something? Would love to be a part of them...I'm in Frankfort. Looking for places to off road! And some people to go with.

moe 03-14-2012 10:46 PM

Yes I am. Therre is a Faceplant page. We have a couple members from Mokena and Frankfort. You should be able to hook up with members out at the Cliffs in the next couple weeks , watch the blogs on fb and the club website

Laudthelau 03-15-2012 07:15 PM

Do me a favor and don't ask to be a member of my 4x4 enthusiast group. We do NOt support illegal offroading. Do me another favor and Stay OFF land that is not yours! If you don't have permission from the owner of the land than stay OFF no matter what the reason.

CORE is a good group of guys! TKO are also a good new 4x4 club of the south burbs, very nice guys aswell! My 4x4 enthusiast group outta the NW burbs(NorthWestChicagoRovers has a bunch of members who wheel alot as for M&Gs, I've been very busy we try'd to have our first last month but only two other people were able to come out so we might try again next month. I will be planning a group event come summer to one of the local parks.
