Central Illinois jeepers

Im almost 17 and have an almost stock 97 cherokee and would really like to get into this sport. I would love to learn and wheel with anyone in the area and maybe pick up some good tips.

X3 I'm a stones throw from Joliet and there's only one place I know of, but its not even worth the risk.

ajxj: Sept. 28th my club (of 30+ Jeepers) will be making a run to the Badlands in Indiana. Plenty of XJs will be there and stock rigs are more than welcome. Mark it on your calendar!
