Have a couple of buddies with old Jeeps, nothing formal, but we get together to work on each others' projects. Where are you located?

You could expand it to southern Wisconsin there are several of us up here who communicate and trade. Not much trail riding but we network pretty good when a part is needed or something technical needs attention....don't let any Packer /Bear rivalry bother you. We all speak jeep.

Damar2yxr, I'm in southern Wisconsin near Fort Atkinson. I see your profile says your in Watertown. It would be great to meet some other local Willys fanatics.

The Illinois patrol of the IFFC is up and running strong.  I suggest you hook up with them.  They have a great patrol patch now too.

I tried to search for the northern illinois club and could not find it. Can you help please? I would like to check them out.

Thanks!

Hey Guys!

This is Chris Mistrata, Lew had posted my FB info above. Myself and Eric Grendahl head up the IL patrol of the IFFC. I am in Lake County, not far from the IL/WI border. We started the IL patrol of the IFFC last year and have slowly added IL and southern Wisconsin people to the group. As the weather gets warmer I am hoping we can have some meet ups and rides for those that are local. 

If you are looking for more info and are on Facebook, check out the IFFC page, this is where most of the flat fender action happens: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1641202336209808/ ;

Here is the link to the Illinois Patrol FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/306990183037115/?ref=br_rs

Also, you guys can contact me at thewillysjeepman@gmail.com or PM me here on the forum. 

Again, as the warm weather arrives I hope to be able to schedule some meet and greets or gatherings for those in the area. If you have any shows, cruise nights, gatherings, etc taking place be sure to let me know as well. I attend many local car shows with my GPW and Willys Pick-up, and would love to see other flat fender guys out there as well.

For sure, Lew!  I have neglected the forums lately and have been spending too much time on FB, but I will definitely post updates here regarding plans for the warm months ahead. Everyone else please do the same as well!
