Welcome to the mainland!!

Is your ? 2wd? There's plenty of trails around SD, most 2wd drive friendly. Lots of forest roads in the Cleveland, Angeles, and San Bernardino national forests. There's a bunch of stuff in the Big Bear area, but it's most likely covered in snow right now. The sky is the limit on what you could do to make your ? more capable. If so, aside from tires being the biggest bang for the buck upgrade, I'm realizing recovery equipment is huge. I need more and wish I would have bought more earlier. That's a lot of what's on my personal shopping list for this year.

It’s 2WD, but with locking rear differential. I want the TRD Skid Plate, but after google earthing trails, looks like ima need more armour.

The locking diff should help a lot. Many of the trails in southern California don't require crazy armor. Some may, but most do not and if the section you are on is a bit crazy there's usually a drive around if you want to bypass it.

get some sliders and that front skid plate and you'll be good for many trails.

Don't go alone if you can help it just in case.
