Week long trip to Moab, tips and advice?

Wife and I are heading out in our 06 CCLB super duty chassis on 37s truck with a few other smaller rigs (LR, GC, Xterra) end of March.

Plan is to leave MI saturday morning.

Mon: arches
tues/wed: white rim
thursday: slicktop/sandflats
thurs/friday: needles/devils kitchen
Satmorning: depart

First thing: will our boat fit down all of these trails?



Route suggestions? Dos and Donts?
Already making a list of all spare parts and tools to take

The switchbacks on White Rim may lead to a full diaper in that outfit, but it's physically doable...

You sure that's an 06 and not a 96? Just saying.....

I have no real input to add but love to see some pics of that boat sailing down some trails!

I have friends who took much bigger rigs and had little trouble.

Oh yes im sure its an 06. Well its an 06 chassis but a 91 cab. Functionally for turning/stopping inrefer to it as an 06.

Good to know about the beer.

Good to know avout the bigger rigs, my main concern was the switchbacks on white rim...and also the really tight section through elephant.. Somethhing..?
Those bigger rigs, 182" wheelbase and bigger? Id have a spotter just in case too

Utah sells beer with higher octane levels. They just call them liquor.

Buddy has organized and booked all permits /campsites already. Im just following his lead

My main concern is the squeeze through elephant hill. The old school tow mirrors stick out a bunch even when folded in. Can i get the truck up on an angle to squeeze through it?

Just take them off when you get there, put 'em back on when you leave.
