|Architek||Help! - I have a 5 person condo reserved for Easter Jeep Safari next week that I unfortunately cannot use. I am hoping to find someone that can take the reservation over. Reservation is for Wed-Sunday and the condo is in downtown Moab. Please message me if you are interested and I will give the details. Thanks.|

|Moabite||Check Outlaw Jeep Rentals next to City Market. I don't know much about the other rental places in town, but Jim seems pretty meticulous about maintaining his vehicles.|

|Moabdan||There are several rental places here in Moab. The Adventure Center, High Point Hummer, Moab Tour Company, Cliffhanger just to name a few. I know several have been bringing in extra for Jeep Safari so if you call around there might be one available.|

|damndirtydog||You may have a point AMangum and rent the jeep in SLC. It won't be a Rubi but Yetti could do some of the easy to easy/moderate trails and at least have a Jeep. There's about 5 outfitters in Moab renting jeeps.|

Have fun. The scenery is amazing.
P.S. While you're there, be sure to make a run up to Deadhorse state park. It's about 20 miles up highway 191 between Moab and I-70. I'm not going to clue you into what you'll see, but it'll be the best $10 bucks you'll ever spend and the scenery will blow your shorts off.

Hey Yetti, just got back from Moab last week. I rented from Moab Adventure Center. They were cordial and all but I was a little hacked off when they gave me a Rubicon with death wobble. Unfortunatly I was 20 miles away and almost to the trail head when I hit a bump in the road a 45 mph and the jeep started doing the Harlem shake, I had to come to a complete stop before it would cease to wobble. Did it 2 more times on the way back.
What I was unhappy about is that they knew the Jeep had problems. But they rented me the 2010 jeep with death wobble while they had 6 other newer jeeps on the lot that weren't rented.
The rental was $155 plus tax = $191.00 and be prepared for a $1000 hold on your credit card. P.S. call your credit card company and warn them that you will be making that charge. My first 2 cards wouldn't go through.
Fox car rental at SLC airport rents Jeeps but you won't get a Rubicon.
I just posted a thread on here last night, "A flatlander in Moab". I don't know how to attach it to this thread, but its got some nice pictures.
If you rent from one of the Moab outfitters, they'll give you a detailed map and description of each trail.
They go from easy level 2&3 to moderate 4s&5s to difficult 6,7&8s. Stick with the moderate trails so as to avoid any damage to the rental Jeeps. They look them over with a fine tooth comb when you return them and charge your credit card up to your insurance deductable.

There are a few other rental companies with Wranglers in Salt Lake City as well, but this close to Easter Jeep Safari, if you don't already have a reservation you won't get one. There used to be a place to rent them in Moab a few years ago and I am not sure if they are still around any more. If they are there still, you absolutely won't get one there this late.

I'm from Georgia but y family is heading out to Moab this weekend, wondering if there were any recommendations on where to rent a jeep and where to wheel at?
