The federal government owns nearly 57% of the land in Utah. How that land is designated and managed has been a source of contention, uncertainty and lawsuits for decades. Since 2012, Rep. Rob Bishop and Rep. Jason Chaffetz have been leading an effort to bring all the stakeholders together to reach agreement on a final status for the land. Eight counties in eastern Utah are now participating in the “Utah Public Lands Initiative” (PLI). Grand County and Moab are a focal point. To follow is the current status.

Dealer Services International (DSI) is proud to introduce the COMMANDO Jeep Wrangler concept vehicle. Inspired by the original Hendrick COMMANDO tactical vehicle, this dynamic on- and off-road performance platform was exclusively unveiled at the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.
In another story from this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, we explored the notion that the Wrangler Africa Concept is toying with future changes we could see on the next-gen Wrangler. The Grand Cherokee Overlander Concept subtly does the same thing by exploring a tweak to the suspension system that Jeep hasn’t publicly done before.
The Easter Jeep Safari is a pretty unique and very cool event. Although there are informal business meetings at the event in Moab, cards may get swapped over meals or drinks, and much of Jeep aftermarket displays its latest gear at a trade show at the end of the week, but the event is also very much based in a love of off-roading. So pretty much everyone in attendance spends some time on the trail, because ultimately that’s what it’s all about.
Billionaire Donald Trump once said the two most expensive words in the world are “why not?” In some way, shape or form, practically every off-roader can understand this concept. For some this relates to the truly expensive questions, like why not put 40-inch tires on my Wrangler, or why not put a HEMI conversion in my JK? Or there are simpler ones, like why not try to climb that ledge, or why not use the “bonus” line? Logic need not apply to many of these questions. In fact, they often aren’t questions so much as statements. “Why not” isn’t asking for a counterpoint; it’s making a statement. It says: This is going to happen, and let the cards fall where they may.
Moab, Utah – More than 50 volunteers turned out on Tuesday during the Easter Jeep Safari to help improve Moab’s popular Sevenmile Rim Trail and Wipe Out Hill.
GREENVILLE, S.C. – BFGoodrich Tires builds tires for any adventure, including those that take drivers off their daily roadways.

These clubs will use their grants to continue their efforts that preserve and protect their hometown trails.
