Would it be better to go during the Easter Jeep Safari or during a less-busy time? I want to get the most out of the trip (it's 1,200 miles one-way), and I worry that the EJS will be busy and I'll end up doing a lot of waiting during drives.
I'm assuming you don't have much trail time under your belt. If that's the case, I recommend going with at least one other experienced driver - bonus if they've wheeled Moab. That said, there are plenty of fantastic, easier trails out there.
Regardless, buy Charles Wells' Moab Guide. Get the spiral bound version. It will be incredibly valuable to you in helping with trail selection and guiding you on the trails you decide to run. Charles Wells' Moab Guide

I've spent about 80 days there wheeling - it is truly an awesome place.
