pancake rock but bring another rig or two. Lawrence Welk maybe and some stuff in Corral canyon. Most everything has a bypass around here.

i was out at PR about 2 weeks ago, and if it is your first time out wheeling (and in a stock unarmored rig) or if you are worried about dents i would pass on it for now.

could you do it with a stock WJ sure but you will be taking quite a good amount of time getting to the top and back down. and quite a good dents in your rockers and exhaust.

IMO i wouldn't do it without some sliders and armor underneath and you don't mind your muffler and cat(s) taking a hit or 2 on a stock height grand.

for CC there is espinosa / los pinos trail depending on which way you go you may want a buddy just in case.

Lots of trails around East County if you know where to look... You might be scraping the under side a bit, but my stock ZJ makes it through a lot of this stuff...

All about that unibody life.

When I was stock, I liked to head through Canyon Sin Nombre out in Anza, and drive around the wash. You can plan it at night, when there's no moon, and see about a billion stars. Also check out Fish Creek Wash. Not very challenging, even to a stock vehicle, but very fun with some awesome scenery. There's a hiking trail that takes you up to the wind caves, and some really neat sandstone cliffs and fossils. I did pancake rock in a stock vehicle, and while it was a bit tense, we had no trouble. Just make sure to disconnect your sway bar before hitting the trail. Coyote Canyon is pretty fun too, with a few small water crossings at the beginning. Might wanna disconnect the sway bar for that one too.

I don't know if I would do PR with a stock vehicle though, you'd probably have a lot of scrapping and mind damage on the way up.

I take my stock WK out to Ocotillo Wells all the time. Much fun to be had with minimal risk to the vehicle. Bring your camera out and watch the big toys.

Heading out to Anza Borrego is a good family type trip. Stock WJ can do most of it no problem. Take a buddy and just do some exploring. Leave early in the morning, run the trails all day, and head home in the evening. Easy ingress/egress to the palm springs (?) wash area.

There are several sway bar disconnect kits on the market. I have and really like the JKS Quiker discos. easy to use, install, and buy.
