If we’re honest, there’s really not a bad trail anywhere in Moab but there area few popular trails that stand out more than others. We wanted to share a few highlights from trail rides at Easter Jeep Safaris. Check it out.
Some people have more money than brains. You wouldn’t catch us driving our Luxury Range Rover (or any luxury car for that matter) through one of the hot tubs in Moab, Utah. But hey, if you got it, flaunt it?
PAYSON, UT – Rocky Mountain ATV/MC’s popular Rally on the Rocks contest is currently accepting entries. Winners will enjoy a prize package that involves attending the Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks event in Moab, Utah.
Mesa, AZ — Appropriately enough, the extended family of the UTV community gathers in Moab, Utah, the Wednesday after Mother’s Day for the annual Rally On The Rocks. The family-oriented event runs Thursday-Saturday, May 15-18 and features some of the most scenic touring in the world… not to mention some of the most challenging slick rock terrain to be found anywhere. An ice cream social, concession stands, vendor midway, bonfires and even a drive-in movie night ensure that there is something for everyone.
“DragonFire is honored to be able to share the good times with friends and families at the Rally On The Rocks,” says social media manager Chris Moore. “We are proud to be the presenting sponsor of DragonFire Movie Night as well.” Rally goers are encouraged to join DragonFire and the editors from MotoUSA.com for a drive-in style movie shown on a massive outdoor movie screen starting at dusk on Thursday night.
Earlier in the month, we posted a news item about the BlueRibbon Coalition working to raise funds through the sale of an Easter Jeep Safari-themed t-shirt that would be sold in the Moad Diner. The shirt, designed by RCH Designs, would generate money to help keep trails open to four-wheeling in Moab, Utah.
We at Off-Road.com try to stop in at least once to the Moab Diner for some of their famous green chili, and we were pleasantly surprised to see some off-road-themed tables throughout the joint during the 47th Easter Jeep Safari.

Today, Jeep has re-launched the Cherokee today at the New York Auto Show and Moab, Utah. The 2014 Cherokee fits into the void in the company left when the Liberty was removed, offering a mid-sized SUV that offers a fuel economy of up to 31 mph.
While the 2014 Grand Cherokee was fitted with an eight-speed transmission, the new Cherokee receives this segment’s first nine-speed automatic transmission to provide fuel improvements of more than 45 percent compared to the Liberty. The Cherokee offers a best-in-class V-6 towing capability of 4,500 pounds. It also boasts a rear-axle disconnect that can be activated when 4×4 isn’t needed to reduce energy loss and increase fuel efficiency.
The Easter Jeep Safari, which takes place in Moab, Utah, from March 23-31, gathers Jeep and off-road enthusiasts to the area for a number of trail runs and off-road events throughout the week. For years Jeep and Mopar have teamed up to create unique concept vehicles for the event, which they show off to the media at an invite-only gathering. Off-Road.com will be on hand to check out the new vehicles and even take them for a short spin to report how they feel.
