Looking for a cool week long offroad trip/expedition

Hey guys!

I'm looking for a cool trip to do in my Jeep with my wife. I have lived in AK and have been to multiple survival schools, so don't worry about that part. Hoping to be on 35's by then, but running 32" Rubicon tires right now.

I'd be down for a long haul to the trail as far as CO, UT, MT, WA and so on. I live in San Diego. Any suggestions?

Any cool stuff around Glacier National Park in Montana? Always wanted to go there

why not combine CO and Moab? plenty of sightseeing and awesome trails for even stock stuff.

probably one of the most common answers, but you really can't beat the scenery and trails.

Awesome thanks. That's definitely on the bucket list. This big trip is now probably a year away. Now I'm thinking a summer vacation at lake tahoe and a trip on the Rubicon Trail. I have 4.56 gears not installed yet, after that I just need 35's and a front traction device.

Its time to reevaluate the way we coddle the future generation. Making mistakes and getting hurt is how you grow. Teaching kids to fear Pop Tarts is how you promote xenophobia. Lets get it together, America.

My build is headed in that direction, but not there yet. I'm really glad you posted that though. I've always wanted to do that.
