here are some parks... just make sure full size trucks are allowed on trails. Sometimes they only allow dirtbikes/fourwheelers/sidexsides.

Also as mentioned earlier, look into public hunting grounds as most of those offer some good "off road picture" opportunities

I can't speak to other states, but Florida's WMAs offer serious off-road trails that will test or break the limits of any rig. There are huge hill climbs, mud holes, and V-notches that will flex you to the limit or roll you onto your side. My truck is also my daily driver, so I don't go TOO crazy, but those trails are definitely out there!

In FL, Huge hill climbs?? 345 feet above sea level is the highest natural point in the state. I was stationed in FL for years, never found a hill to hard. There are a few sink holes, that would be a challenge, but that is only because of the size of the truck, trying to fit it in.

I am not talking about man made parks or obstacles. I am talking about what nature provides.

Yep, I guess you missed them.

I never said they couldn't be man-made. I said they were on public land in Florida's Wildlife Management Areas / hunting grounds. There are old mines and other assorted "features" located in the public hunting areas where you can climb huge hills. Citrus WMA and Croom WMA (both around an hour or so north of Tampa Bay) have some great stuff.

Did you add those raptor lights below the taillights yourself?

I have been to Croom. What huge hills? My Grandmother lived In Ridge Manor, less then 20 miles away. Been in there in Pickups and ATV's. No huge hills, some hills yes. Huge hills have 500 feet to 1000 foot or more elevation change. A couple hundred feet is not huge in my opinion.

Well I guess that solves our discrepancy. But yeah, agreed, there's no Pike's Peak in Florida, that's for sure. But tons of varied terrain to keep four-wheelers happy...

Haha, for sure. We try to get out to Wyoming and Grand Tetons every year to spend some time in the mountains and get away from the Florida heat. Never got my truck out there, as we prefer to fly that amount of distance, but always rent something and have a great time taking photos:
