Tyler,Hey guys, new to the Chicago area (Logan Square) and trying to get back into camping, fishing, and off roading. I recently got a 2012 Jeep GC Laredo WK2 4x4 before I moved up and am looking to beef it up a little bit. I've already gotten the RR leveling kit in hand and will also be putting some new ATs on it some time this Winter. If anyone has any recommendations on a shop/installer for the leveling kit then please let me know.
As for camping and fishing I am working on building up gear past the usual stuff (tent, bags, cot, basic cast iron, etc.). Hoping to find a few spots to get out to in IL/WI/MI in the Spring.
I'm excited to join the group and look forward to posting more.
((Original vehicle/rig through my late teens and early twenties was a 1998 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71, 5.7L 350, 9in. of lift (6" suspension, 3" body), 37" MTs, cat back exhaust, a few mounted lights, etc etc. Fun for the mud but now looking to tone it down))
Some good trails in Wisconsin, Michigan.
Shops for work, suspension, aftermarket, check in Dubuque Iowa Complete Off Road.
Camping gear, overlanding gear, depends on what you want.
If you want some advise or ideas give me a call.
