I am up in central illinois and work at the Cliffs. The group of guys I wheel with go on at least one trip a month. usually 2. If you ever feel like hitting trails up here let me know. We are regulars at the cliffs.. the badlands.. and redbird. We just got back from the bantam jeep festival as well, so we do the big trips as well.

Hey, I'm in Carbondale and would love to go wheelin sometime. I am from the NW burbs but am down here for another year. Lifted my Jeep, got 35s, went wheelin once and then moved down here, lol.

Also, I am starting to get a bit of a death wobble, so I was hoping to meet some people with a garage. I left all my tools and stuff in storage up north since I won't have a garage here. May be replacing some suspension/steering components in the near future, but don't have any place to do it. :/

Hey Ket, do you know of any body shops around here that could paint half doors? Preferably ones you've dealt with or you know give good deals and do good work.
