forgot to mention my brother from parker will be tagging along in his xterra that is titan swapped on 35's so something with bypasses for me that he can have a good time on would also be great.

Not knowing your off road skill level, what kind of trails are you looking for? Green, Blue, Red?
Green
Secret Spire, Hell Roaring Rim, Shafer Trail/White Rim/Lathrup Canyon (requires NPS permit and with the shutdown, good luck getting one), Gemini Bridges, Cameo Cliffs

Blue
Dome Plateau, Hidden Canyon Overlook, Seven Mile Rim, Elephant Hill (NPS permit required), Fins & Things, Jax Trax, Porcupine Rim

Red
Hells Revenge, Poison Spider, Top of the World, Strike Ravine, Backwards Bill, Metal Masher, Gold Bar Rim and Golden Spike, Steel Bender, Flat Iron Mesa

The truth is, unless you are highly skilled and have a second driver that is highly skilled (Disclamer: I don't know your driving skill level or how your rig is setup) I'd stick to the green and blue trails. Hell's Revenge and Top of the World (red) are not that hard, but there are spots that require your attention. I have lead TOTW the last 3 years with GoneMOAB and have pretty much run almost all the trails out there over the last 5 years.

Your rig should be OK for Green and Blue trails. You didn't mention if you had skid plates and sliders because I'd not run the red trails without at least sliders.

thanks for the input. I have been off roading for over 20 years. Georgia, virginia, arizona, idaho, washington, montana, wyoming, colorado, alaska, afghanistan...tons of experience..I do not have sliders so no reds sounds fine for now.

It was a great time. I do not recommend moab after a snow storm like we had. Hells revenge was down right life threatening with snow and ice on all the north facing rock.
Video of how slick rock covered in snow and ice makes a 4 rated trail into an ice louge

Watch "Fins and things in the snow" on YouTube

Glad you had a great time. You should consider doing GoneMOAB 2019. This will be my 5th year, and I'm leading Top of the World again
