    Work on fixing the Bronco or fix the heep... either way... you were probably fed-up with it, that's all.

    Good luck...

    Was this question ever answered?

    It seems I am a bit late for this post, but I will throw in my two cents. I am currently living in Beach Park, IL. which is just North of Waukegan. The question that started this whole post was about local 4x4 shops.
    McHenry County 4-Wheel Drive Center
    2902 W Il Route 120
    Mchenry, IL 60051
    (815) 385-0650‎

    They use to be on the expensive side but still and good place to deal with.
    So I have tried to cover most of this post so I know every one is sharing there home cities but is there any gatherings coming up that I might be able to join in.
    Have a great Explorer day.:burnout:

    how many people are going to the badlands bc i live about 1.5 hours from there. and i might be able to go that weekend. i've only got the tt/shackle plus a 3" BL with 31's but i'll still give it a try.

    i use to drive my friend's jeep at the badlands so i have some experience there.

    are you going for the whole weekend or just one day bc there's a camp site connected to the park that is super cheap

    Hello all! Bureau County here, exit 56 on I80. Rolled my pristine 1999 XLT Friday night. Going to fast on a gravel back road, hit a soft spot, did a 180 and rolled on her passenger side and flipped back up on the tires. What a ride! Gotta love them seat belts! Messed up her side pretty good, but everything seems OK otherwise. John

    well, there are some ole threads... this one is probably one of the oldest - wondering who from the "old guard" is still on this forum even though they have moved on? I should probably start a thread and name it: Where are the now?

    :D
