I'll chime in, though your planned day is already in the past. I don't have a jeep, but I have done a lot of dual-sport motorcycle riding in the Roanoke area. Get on 311 at Hanging Rock near Exit 141 of I-81. Drive north about 11 miles, turn right on Wildlife Road, a good forest road that goes about 8-9 miles and then connects to Broad Run. Left on Broad Run takes you back to 311 with several open fords, right on Broad Run eventually gets you to Haymakertown.

If you just want to splash in the mud, you can go on the hill across the street from the truck stom in troutville. just get on 604 like you are heading back to roanoke and turn left at the top of the hill, it is a little dirt road witth a lot of washed out mud and gravel. On top of the hill is a good mud pit. I like to stop there on my way home from work for some de-stressing once in a while.
I found another trail in Montvale while looking at the Star city crawlers' page. If you take a left at the montvale police station and follow that road all the way out, it will turn to gravel and then to dirt and then to some bumpy rocks. The only real challenge is going slow enough to keep parts from falling off your rig, but it is a nice ride. You will go all the way across the mountain (under a Parkway bridge) and pop out in Buchanan near Nace. Fun little ride and takes about 2-3 hours if you take your time. Maybe an hour if you hurry.
