Newbie from Illinois

I’m here in Illinois and you need one of these to get you out of the potholes! My first Jeep and lovin’ every minute of it. Got it the first week of July and have been “personalizing” it ever since. Went to WF many times before registering to see your opinions on some of the things I have added on or thought about adding. You all have been really helpful. Thanks!
In the past 6 weeks have added a Diabolical storage unit, Magnaflow exhaust, shorty antenna, Rugged Ridge sill covers, Weathertech floor liners, a Tazer programmer, and installed a ceiling mounted lift system for the hardtop. So far my choices have been good ones as I really like how they look, work, and sound.
Thanks again!!!

I’m in Peoria Chuff. Probably 100 miles or so north of where you are in Jacksonville.

Yep I know it. I work at a helicopter EMS base, our chopper has been up there on occasion. I did make it to Hopedale hospital a couple of weeks ago though.

I drive through Pittsfield to get to this base; I usually pass up to 6 Wranglers in that town. Never have I had a single wave from those miserable sods!

Chuff I have driven thru Pittsfield many times, not in my Jeep yet so no wave experience. We have a place at the Ozarks and take 54 off of I72 a lot. 54 will take you all the way to the Bagnell dam.
