So like the title says that is what my wife bought me this Christmas. Now it is fully stock and not looking to put to much money in it but would like to know what I need in order to just do some off reading and where in SoCal can I go.

ultimately all you really need is a better tire than what comes stock. tires can go a long way, other than that maybe a suspension upgrade later down the line.

That’s a pretty cool Christmas gift. You have a photo of it?

In SoCal, and being 2wd, you could do Cleghorn. It offers varying levels of difficulty but the good thing is you can skip everything by staying on the fire road. I think it would be a good first place for you to go.

Alternatively, you can go to Ocotillo Wells and do some desert pre-running. Just air down your tires and be cautious about getting stuck since you won’t have 4wd to help you get out.

Cleghorn ?
It has it’s easy, mild, & hard sections but like you said air down that helps a ton
