Rockford ay? Thats about 4 hours from me. There are a few spots down here that my friends have every now and then. I'm in Alton btw. I really don't know of much to wheel in Illinois myself tho. Use to have Mississippi Mud in Wood River a long time ago, but they sold it, and now cops wont hesitate to take you to jail if they catch you back in there. It is a really good spot to wheel at tho.

I'm in Galena IL (10 mi from Dubuque IA) and I'd say cliffs is the closest public place worth the drive. I also attend some of the tri state stump jumper events...they are usually around the dubuque IA area on private land, but again, that's a 90 minute drive for you. PM me if you want stump jumper info.

Check out the great lakes jeep thing forum too. I think its www.gljt.org

What kind of rig are you running? That will dictate a lot about the places you can go. There are some local places down this way, but I liked the Cliffs when I was there.

I'll be making a trip to either The CLiffs or Badlands when I get the rig done later this summer.

I might be able to get a few guys to come out to rocky glen for some jeep fun...as long as you're sure the guy is cool with jeeps and trucks tearing up his atv trails.

PM me or email me at [email protected]

I'm in Central IL (just outside Decatur), and I've also been looking for places to go. I've been to the Badlands, and had a blast. Yep i broke something, but it was the exhaust manifold while going over some large boulders on a trail back to the trailer. Sure glad the break was at the end of the day. Difficulty wasn't too bad and I was able to keep up with the Jeeps I'd gone with, I'm in a Dodge 3/4 ton Weapons Carrier (M37).
