Ok I'm traveling from South Louisiana to San Clemente Ca. I'm bring my 1 ton jku as of now and wondering what must wheel locations are between here and there. I know the Hammers Trails once I get there but are there any stops that I should schedule, also looking for cool places to stop. Ive been doing some research and going to travel I-10'om the way out but coming home going to Vegas and not sure where from there. Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Traveling mid December and returning early January.

Ive wheeled K2, Wolf Caves, and Trees around San Antonio.

If you have time and are planning on doing some camping/overlanding, I would suggest the Mojave Road. It's about 130 miles of off-roading from Laughlin, NV to Barstow, CA with lots of history and plenty of desert scenery. Daytime temps in Dec and Jan should be pleasant with cold overnight temps. There are often groups making the trek that time of year and if you do some searching you may be able to hook-up with one of them. It's the kind of trail any stock 4x4 can tackle but it's appeal is more for it's history and scenery than technical driving.

Lots of info online about the Mojave Road. Here's a link to pique your interest: https://www.desertusa.com/desert-trails/mojave-road-page1.html

Thanks for the info guys. Looking at Las Cruces Nm area and the Hammers trails. Then on the way back the Grand Canyon Rim trail and hopefully Moab Ut. Im not planning to overland any my truck has the correct suspension with Thierun suspension but pulling my 1 ton Jk on a trailer. So long distance one way trails will suck with a 20 car hauler in tow. I would love to run Big Bend on another trip are there any difficult trails or mostly over landing?

Big bend nat'l park is more overland. Some trails are better in 4wd just to save on the brakes. Big Bend Ranch State Park is massive and has some trails that require 4wd. I have not covered a 10th of that place, its huge. The ranger station is 27 miles from entrance. Prepare for very fine dust. Do make certain you have several large water and fuel containers. DO NOT GO ALONE.
