new from IL -- Chicago 'burbs

New to the Jeep community -- as of about 4 days ago I've become a first time new car buyer AND a first time Jeep owner (although knowing I was going to be the former, the latter was a given). I'm in a 2011 sport hard top, although I'm having the soft top installed today in preparation for the warmer weather.

I've already received some great advice on here, and am looking forward to having some fun with my jeep! so far I love it!

-Pat

Welcome Neighbor

Feel free to check in on the IL forum: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f107/wh...nois-9708.html
If you are looking for an off-road club - we have openings (click the link in my sig). We are a mild to moderate wheeling club so your stock JK will fit right in (until you start modding it - it's bound to happen - and then you will still fit right in). By the way, we plan at least one off-road event each month, and we have a meet and greet monthly in Mt. Prospect. Next one is on May 14th.

If you have questions, there are lots of great people on here willing to help.

Welcome aboard.

I visited Chicago in 2009 and loved it, especially the Cubs game I went to. Uno's down town served superb pizza and Ditka's Steakhouse was divine.

So are you Cubs or White Sox's?

Thanks all, from Lisle specifically -- right next to naperville. Thanks, Mb I'll have to check that forum frequently.

And Bazzer, I agree Chicago is awesome... try to get myself to a few Cubs games every summer. In addition to trying some offroading, I'm also looking forward to goin' for cruises around the city and along Lake Shore Drive. I love Chicago summers!
