Help Planning Multi-Day Expedition near Atlanta, Georgia

I recently watched the show, "One Car Too Far", and it made a friend and I want to take our Jeeps (both are 2008 4-door JK's) on a 3-4 day wheeling trip and film it to make as a school project. Our biggest problem is that we live in Atlanta, Georgia, and we do not have a Moab desert or anything big and open and public like that to go to. We would like to have a mixture of different elements, to make for a well rounded trip, i.e. not just all mudding or all rock crawling. So, these are our big questions:

Are there any places anyone knows of within about 2-3 hours of Atlanta that are the kind of thing we are looking for-- big enough for 3-4 days of wheeling without having to come out, lots of different obstacles, allow overnighters or is public land?

What all would we need in terms of Jeep supplies? We are both running 2" kits with 33" all-terrains, both have a winch and steel bumpers (front and back with d-rings), we know to have extra gas, and our plans are to have snorkels on both (but for the sake of argument, lets assume we don't), what else would we need?

Is this a realistic idea? Planning a 3-4 day trip with only 2 jeeps and more than enough, but limited supplies nonetheless, as well as attempting to film it?

Any help or advice would be great. Thanks.

I would pack a GPS in my pack and get lost in the Chattahoochee National Forest. When I got ready to go home I would turn my GPS on.

Chocolocco Mtn in Jacksonville, AL (North of Anniston).

Morris Mtn just South of Anniston, AL.

Chocolocco is better equipped for camping than Morris Mtn.
