CO camping and trails

Hey guys I am planning a road trip to CO next week. I will be getting into Denver Sunday the 21st and then leaving the next morning. I was wondering what trails are good in the south west. I think we are planning to be around Crested Butte, Telluride, Ouray, Buena Vista, Glenwood, and Wedville. This is the list of places my buddy gave me.
I have a stock WJ and was wondering where I might be able to go without destroying the car. I want to see scenic places but have fun on the trails themselves. I don't want to just cruise dirt roads the whole time. I was also wondering about camping. Are there any good trails with campgrounds in them or along the way?
Any advice anyone has would be a great help. I have been looking at traildamages.com and alltrails.com but I would like to hear a little more with first hand experience.
Thanks for your time.

Well down in the Ouray area you can do every trail except Poughkeepsie Gulch in a stock vehicle.

Up around gleenwood you can do coffee pot, white owl lake, transfer trail. Could probably do grizzly jeep trail too just watch the mud holes. You can straddle them but if you slide off in the ruts its deep. All those u can find on TRAIL DAMAGE site above.
