Looking for new jeep buddies

Hey everyone, I'm Jimmy and I'm a new Jeep owner. I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler JK 4-Door. I absolutely love it. I'm in Suffolk County and I'm just reaching out to see if theres any clubs or any get togethers that people just hang out at, show off the jeeps, have some beers, laugh, and just share good times. Im looking to meet a bunch of jeep people because id really like to get involved with everything. Id also be willing to take a trip to nassau to BS with new friends. I work island wide so i know how to get everywhere.

What's up man, my name's mike and I'm also new to the jeep world. I've wanted a jeep since high school and I just got my 2 door sport at the end of february. I'm in suffolk as well and I just found out about the long island off road club. I think their website is liorc.com. I'm like you in that I'm really eager to learn all there is to know about these amazing vehicles. Waiting on uncle Sam's check so i can dump most of it into the precious. Where in Suffolk are you?

That sounds great. Are you from the area as well? There seems to be a lack of wheeling spots on LI, but only due to the fact that everything is illegal around here.

Very nice. Do you know of a good place in the tri-state area that has some decent beginner trails? I'm not looking to traverse any boulders...yet.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Is it an organized setting, with people who work there who can assist? Or is it just a huge wilderness with some trail markers?

Welcome to the forum brotha. I'm pretty wet behind the ears myself, but I'm loving the forum so far. You can learn a lot just by talking to more experienced jeepers. Us long islanders gotta stick together!

Yeah I've heard very good things about the Duratracs. I'm also seriously considering Mickey Thompson mtzs based on a lot of good reviews from some other folks on the forum. Did u keep the same size wheel when u got your tires? I have 17" wheels and I'm thinking of dropping down an inch or two cause the tires are so much cheaper for the smaller wheels.

For sure. I'm trying to get something together one of these weeks. Maybe a little jeep chat over some beers. Got a couple o people down already. I have to make sure that at least one person there actually knows what they're talking about so someone can answer all my noob questions

Sundays at four is a good time for me. I'll spread the word around and see if other people would want to meet up too. Then we can all settle on a specific date

Hey, I know I posted this in other threads but get in touch with Long Island Off Road. Those guys are pretty active and great people. They know a lot of great riding spots and just Jeep knowledge in general. They also take weekend wheeling trips. They were up my way this weekend, about an hour east of the Albany Area in western MA. Some of my club members got to wheel with them. Hope this helps.
