Just wondering who is near. Lets see your jeep!

Hey guys/gals, My name is Chad, I'm from Yorkville. (that is south west of Aurora)

jpdocdave 03-17-2008 07:28 PM

anyone else in the exciting state of illinois. corn fields aren't cool to wheel on:D

dogsnhorses 03-23-2008 12:39 AM

Illinois here, Kane county but we have a house and land out further west close to the Iowa boarder. Trying to sell this place then we'll head out there, which will give me more time to play.

jpdocdave 04-29-2008 09:49 PM

Here's My Jeep :D

The "Disney" logos are for advertisement :D
No one has it but Me =) and it's unique and one of a kind.

I been offroading for 8 years now and love this passion for offroading.
I love it so much I made a jeep club. WooHoo

Check it out:
It's a awesome friendly club and is getting bigger thought out the times.
I plan to have my club though out other states and someday design a Rock Crawler for our club and have the buggy sponsored.

I am also on another forum called " and fourm".
I been posting all my club events on the forum and will be posting our events on this forum as well. So, keep a look out for our events and I hope a few of you will join in and perhaps join our club.

I have put lots on time and research on my jeep and thats why its built like this and it ROCKS! I mostly love rock crawling and our club goes though steep hill climbs, steep drops, pass though creeks, deep mud pits, sand dunes and more. All we do is legal stuff and Thread Lightly.

I been going to the Badlands in Indiana for 8 years and play in the Cliffs in Illinois. Our club is based in the suburbs of Illinois and we have a regional leader for Indiana. As I mentioned, I am spreading my club though out other states and will be appointing regional leaders in the future. Someday some of you can be my regional leader of their state. That's one of the cool benefits of our club. We are wanting to wheel at other places but, gas prices are way to high to travel to other offroading locations. But, Someday we plan on driving to Moab and Tellico and We cannot wait.

Well, This is my slight overview about my club and myself.
If anyone has any questions feel free to PM me or you can email me at:

Thank You,
Club President

yea, i def will. Thing is right now i have two jeeps in my house my moms stock 2006 TJ. (This was my sisters until my dad realized that it wasn't what she wanted. He realized it when it came home a solid brown color instead of yellow:punk:.) My sister now has a 1990 Yj but it has a few problems that are slowly being resolved. The 4wd doesn't work(we belive its vacuum hoses:banghead:) and a few other problems. Do you guys trailer down there or drive? Cause it could be a long drive at 12mpg and 58 max mph :rolleyes:

welcome, i'm just a little north of ya. what kinda jeep ya got, put up some pics.

there's a great spot to spend a couple days camping and wheeling a few hours away.

check it out, we went this summer, and will probably go again.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxcharheep 01-13-2009 11:31 AM

Just bought it. Black, 4.0L, stick. Stock all the way around. I want to get through the winter before digging into it.

Ever been to The Cliffs Insane Terrain They seem closer than the badlands

jpdocdave 01-13-2009 08:13 PM

yup, that is closer, tons of mud, and not much else. badlands has a lot of fun stuff, and good camping.

and there is a trip put together for august, check it out, we'd love to have you come.

catITguy 03-04-2009 08:21 PM
