The Chicagoland Jeep Meet Thread !

There's a few of us here that peruse the forums daily. As I read this thread Midwest Members I realize that there are a lot of us in Chicagoland.

Let's meet ! The Subaru guys do it (and I know some of you)...every car club does it. I have already met fellow Grand Cherokee owners on the board. There seems to be a new Jeep club sprouting every few weeks, and even though I belong to one FOX RIVER JEEP CLUB , those folks run primarily Wranglers. They are GREAT guys.

Belonging to a Wrangler club is a major limiting factor as it restricts the amount of cautious, calculated fun that we could have with our vehicles. I've run with them at Badlands and I reassure you that the Grand Cherokee can hang out with the Wranglers on 95% of the terrain. Though 95% of us do not want the 95% of the scratches a car would incur driving through the trails there (thru the forest - sand dunes are OK).


Therefore, I propose to all of us, Chicagoland Jeep Grand Cherokee owners, that we hold that our own regular meets, discuss ideas, exchange car parts, educate each other on DIY projects, help each other and so on. I know that the vehicle platform (Grand Cherokee) does not lend itself to extensive mods (unlike a Wrangler or a Subaru) and the type of owner (likely middle aged professional) tends to be busy with family and work. But if you waste 2-3 hours a week on the forums, you surely can come to a 2-3 hour meet once every couple of weeks. And, as I found out over the years, car meets are just another venue for bringing like minded people together, for other hobbies and/or interest - even though you'll never wrench a single bolt on your car.

I would like to see what interest there is among the forum members for having such a meet. Most car clubs pick a weekday evening and meet for 2-3 hours at a restaurant/pub/bar of choice. I know Subaru NASIOC (Impreza) guys do it Thursdays in Schaumburg. When I ran the Subaru Legacy GT meetings, we would rotate locations between Downers Grove and Schaumburg in order to accommodate everyone.

So ...who's interested? My goal is to have a first such meet before the end of the year - 2 months away.

Fritz78 is on a distinguished road
Well I am down. My wife and I are fans as are my parents. This Sunday dec 8th, we are going to go on the JEEPS ON THE RUN toys for tots cruise. We both have Grand Cherokees 02 & 08. Looks like the majority of the others are going to be wranglers. Anyone else on here attending? Could be a nice ice breaker.
