Have you been down to the Four Wheeling forums further down on the main page? There is a Southwest section and here's a link specific to ARIZONA . All of my experience was with the Tucson and further south areas and since that was 20 years ago I'm sure it's outdated info.
Good luck and have fun!!

Many north south east or west. From easy to , you do not want to try that. Looks like you live in Az. Sounds like your new to az wheeling or wheeling. I would Join the The Arizona Virtual Jeep Club (AZVJC). We have thousand+ members and online trail runs listing by degree of trail. Here we use the 1-5/technical. If this Lib is fairly stock and you want to keep it from to many dents scratches stay 3 and under. start with 2.5" to keep it new. Some runs are trips to moab or Rubicon when its hot here.
my rockers didn't get touched, at one point when I just couldn't see I did tap my nose down... A brush guard would be awesome. But rock sliders, a lift, brush guards and larger tires are in my future for sure.
I would avoid getting to adventurous, alone as well. The list of "rescued" by the Azvjc is long. If you do anyway, tell someone where you are going. So people know were to start looking . Going alone at least bring anything you might need say you get stuck over night for all that go.
Looking at what I see I would say now stay on trails rated 2- 2+ if they are not to many rocks. Here in Az your first enemy will be the pin stripe, nothing you can do about it.
You plan to wheel this much? I am not sure how well the after market supports these. But am am sure like anything. Its all about how much $. One thing no matter what type of jeep.....$x$ .
There is some after market stuff, nothing like a wrangler, but this car isn't meant to be a wrangler. But I have a lift picked out, and some rocker rails, and some tires, lights and a few other things. all in all 2500-3k max in accessories. as far as pin striping goes, my wife said next time we go out, she's going to bring a set of clippers along and if we encounter any areas that might scratch up the truck, she'll tackle them!
The first place we went is somewhere I've been many times, and I know is an easy drive, and it was very populated, and my parents knew where we were going. Next trail I am going to go with at least one other person. I'm not new to going off road, its just been a number of years since I've had a vehicle that could.
