Driving across country NYC to LA, any tips?

Hey guys im leaving in a few weeks taking I-70 West through Utah to I-15 South. Im thinking about going to Moab,UT to visit a national park. I know a lot of Wranglers head out there for some red rock off-roading. You guys have any tips for traveling long distance im taking my Liberty KK 2011. I also would like to know if anyone has been out to Moab what area is good to do a little off roading...

Well, depending on your mileage have it properly serviced, depending on how old and mileage replace all your fluids, plugs, check your tires. If you need extra room look at getting a cargo basket or box. Keep paper maps on you as well as a GPS. If you plan on wheeling, a bit make sure you recovery points on your Lib a tow rope, air gauge and compressor, some wood, water, toilet paper and/or baby wipes, fire extinguisher.

If you're only stopping off in Moab, Arches National Park is closest to I70. Not a lot of wheeling in the park to be done but plenty to see. Stop by the Visitors center for a map, it will show the 4wd route, and all of the viewpoints. Canyonlands, (further southwest of Moab) has a pretty extensive 4wd road but you won't do it one day, and numerous other pretty famous trails. If you want some quick trails to hit, follow Main St. after you get into town and turn onto Kane Creek road. It goes back pretty far into a big network of trails. Ask anyone in town for directions, advice or places to get maps and free water. Have fun! I'll be out there next month I hope!

Thanks joey, I will most likely be goin to arches nat'l park since its closer to 70...I def will look into its 4wd routes. Nothing crazy just a fun moderate way to explore the park is what im looking for.

Well in that case you'll love Arches. I live in Golden, CO about a mile off of I70, lemme know if you stop in CO. I'll loan you a few maps.
