Moab June 9th -13th.

My wife and I are making a trip the the Grand Canyon and Arches National Parks from May 29th to June 13th. We will be in Moab from June 9th - 13th. I would like to do some mild to moderate trails with a mostly stock 09 Wrangler. Running Toyo A/T Open Country P285/70R17's that was on it when I bought it two weeks ago. Any suggestions on trails and/or must have mods/add ons. Not looking to do any serious stuff just want to get off the beaten path and enjoy the outdoors. We are advid campers but we are new to off roading. Any info would be greatly appreciated. The first time I made this trip was in 1982 in an 81 Honda Accord. Been itching to get back ever sense.

I've spent 70-80 days running the trails around Moab. There is tons of stuff you can run ... I'd recommend some rocksliders. But, they're not 'necessary' if you stay on the milder trails.

Below are two lists of trails and their ratings. Ratings are subjective, though - you'll notice the two sites rate some trails differently. So, take the ratings as a general guide, not gospel ... and ask around.
