I've only been through Utah once, but I WILL be back. It's such an amazingly beautiful place!!!

BTW, great photos. More than a little jealous.

Well, gas was about $1000. Hotels/cabin was about $600 and food about $400. Food and hotels can be chopped considerably if you camp and cook your own food. Other than that, no real other serious expenses. You also need to wheel within your means...meaning, if you can't afford to break stuff, don't hit the hardcore stuff. Even getting stuck can cost thousands, as offroad towing is $200 an hour, and they count the time it takes to get to you!!

Wow great pictures!
I have been to Moab 4 times and not one of my pictures look as good as yours!
Make sure you hit Hells Revenge. It is not nearly as hard as it sounds and some great views.
we are planning on going back next summer. I told the wife if I do not get a new truck we will not be taking the YJ.
Instead we will drive her Commander. We are planning on doing Hells Revenge in it.

I was alone (vehicle wise) and I really didn't want to ruin my trip by breaking something, so I stayed off the big boy trails. Next time, when I roll down there with a crew, I'll be more liberal with my trail selection!

Very nice, and more importantly, you definitely know how to take good photos! I'm driving down there in a couple weeks, got a new camera and Jeep to test out so hopefully I'll have some good ones to rival yours!

Great pictures man. It makes me feel blessed to live so close! I ate at the Blue Pig last fall and have driven by Hole in the Rock countless times. Did you notice the Jeep at the top? You can see it in your pic. I want to know how they got it up there. No road to the top as far as I can tell.

I dont remember exactly but I think it is a CJ5. I'm meeting with a bunch of guys from the forum next weekend so I'll confirm

x2 ... Pay close attention to the trail ratings

I picked up a couple of books from AAA, bought a couple from Barnes and Noble, and ordered some from Utah tourism ... I tend to think if I read another book, I'll learn something new. While visiting the Moab Information Center, I picked up "Guide to Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails" by Charles A. Wells. This is THE trail Bible and available all over Moab. It has detailed descriptions of the trails, accurate trail ratings, pictures of trail sights, invaluable OD readings and trail markings, etc. I highly recommend it for anyone planning a trip to Moab and related off road adventures there.

We've used this and told so many people about this book over the last several years that this year we had a total of 5 copies with us when we were down there.
