New Jeep owner in Nebraska

Hi everyone. I just bought my first wheelin' rig, a '16 jkur. I live in Omaha. I know terrible place to be a Jeep owner, but I like it here. I'm looking for people in the area to go wheelin' with. I know it's a bit of a cruise to find any place to go, and I'm up for the drive. Let me know if you're in the area. Even if you're not and have advice for noob, things you wish you knew getting started, the best ways to blow my hard earned money, you know things like that, I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks everyone!

That's a killer color.
I don't usually care for colors outside of white or black ,but that one I do.

Welcome to the forum, you have a nice jeep there. It will go just a bout anywhere stock so I would recommend if you are planning on to start wheeling it start out slow and gets some miles on it before the craziness sets in. Get some recovery gear, put together a small tool kit. On board air is a nice option to have as well when you start wheeling. Either a compressor or power tank. Check the ORV sites for wheeling spots as I don't know any for your area but I am sure they are out there.

Some build info here:

Welcome and great color choice. I run a Hyper Green Hard Rock. Hyper Green was the main reason I swapped out my Anvil Rubi.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

I love that color, it really stands out. There are tons of Jeeps in Omaha, I've only seen about three this color.

I've got all kinds of plans for modding it. Realistically it will be way down the road though. I've got to rebuild the savings account before I start to spend more money. Also, as with learning anything new, if you start adding all kinds of extras, the technology can compensate for lack of skill. I'll make sure I've got the fundamentals down before I do too much to it. I've got a decent tool kit. I used to have a lawn company, so I'm used to carrying around a bunch of tools and repairing things in the field. I'll pick up a recovery kit, a tow rope, a few shackles, and a shovel. Anything else I should add to that? I plan on just getting a cheap portable compressor to get me started. What psi should I air down to?

Thanks again everyone!
