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.
