I have a friend who works for two radio stations who offered to DJ for me for free provided I can get him the equipment. Do you happen to know if it is possible to just rent the equipment rather than the full service?

Yeah, you can just rent audio equipment. You can also rent it with install service so that everything gets set up properly.
Here are a few places you could try in Chicago and Milwaukee:
AV Chicago: http://www.avchicago.com/dj.htm
Chicago Sound Services: http://proaudiochicago.com/
Select Sound Service: http://www.sssmilwaukee.com/Rental.html
Studio Gear: http://www.studiogear.net/audio.asp?cat=113
If none of those work, or if your location isn’t convenient to Southeastern Wisconsin, do a good search for "audip equipment rental (your city)" and you should find something. Good luck!

I concur w/ amandar. There are all kinds of rental companies that can set you up with exactly what you need for not a lot of cash! You may also want to investigate connections you may have with teachers or someone at a church who can get you local music connections for cheapo. 🙂
