Heading to Moab for the first time! Suggestions?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm heading to Moab towards the end of May. I've got an 03 Rubi w/ 6.5 in express lift. Rock crusher sway bars. 37in tires. Thumb throttle. tire rack w/ full size spare and gas rack w/ 3 gas cans. What am I missing? Is there something that is a must to have in Moab. I want to get crazy down there. Do i need a winch, beadlocks, tire deflators, bikini top, or any other items. Does anyone have some things for sale that i am missing or need?

Looks like your pretty set i would get a bikini top though unless you got sun tan lotion, whats with the three gas cans thats alot of gas last time i wheeled for two days straight and only burned through a half tank of gas.

bring tool kit

Umm I would say beadlocks. Youcan air down to 5-6psi and watch your tires grip anything almost. I would also say a winch but the beadlock tires will toss you back 1100 or so bucks.

You seem pretty much set, really dont need any of that, there's plenty of people that have run MOAB without half that stuff. A winch if anything out of that list.

The main thing I would say is Tools and a couple extra fron axle u-joints,

You should be fine with the setup you have. I would lose some of the extra lbs in the back. No need for 3 cans of gas.
A winch would be a good idea. More so than beadlocks. I ran 8psi in my 37's and never had a bead let go.

food and water,water more water first aid kit
winch even a hand one is better then nothing
drive smart and have fun
how about compressed air for airing back up

I say get a winch & some good tow gear & a spotter :D could be very hot so carry plenty of water & sunburn lotion

I would bring along a book on the local trails or at least a map. There are so many roads, side roads and sub roads that you can get turned around and lost around some of that area pretty fast. It depends on where you're going. Like someone else said too, water and some water!
Enjoy...I'm heading there myself in a couple weeks.
