There's one in Wadsworth that's pretty nice size... not sure if it has any Jeeps there though, haven't been there in awhile.

It's easier to go down a hill than up it but the view is much better at the top.

The pick n pull at wadsorth right off us-41 is decent but I haven't seen many wranglers there. There is also City junkyard off of il-120 in waukegan. I goto Sturtavent in wisconsin its a bit far but much larger. Again not many wranglers if any. Wranglers get parted out really fast.

There's one just north of the border in Sturtevant, WI. It's on the I-94 frontage road north of Highway 20. I haven't been to it in a few years so I don't know what's available. Their website:

there are 3 or 4 junkyards all together in Lemont IL. Just take Route 83 south all the way to the cal-sag channel. They are on both sides of the street. Hub Auto is my favorite....
