    I use Gia on an Ipad. Several maps to chose from, but while they show most trail/roads they do not name trails or show the track. You have to save your own tracks.

    Great info in this thread, thanks. At a minimum, will hit up what Lasercat posted with my Rap when I go back.

    I rented a Maverick X3 XRS Turbo R from the Hummer place, hit Hells Revenge and Fins and Things. Holy crap, that was a barrel of fun. Rock crawls great, flies through the sand great. I think a UTV would be a lot more fun than a Rap on the Sand Flats trails, but a Rap could do it with some tailpipe scrapes. Hell, I saw a gigantic turbo diesel dozer deep in Hells Revenge.

    I still have a lot of MTB and offroading to do in that area.

    Is most of this route slow paced or flat out?

    Moab is mostly slick rock with some sand mixed in and on some trails rocks and boulders with shelfs. This trail has a combination of all of them. However it is not desert trails, so while you can go kind of fast on some parts, others are at rock crawl speed. Also most "high" speed trails have a lot of whoops.

    So when in fall is a good time to go to Moab? I am using Lead-Nav, is there Cell coverage there or do i need to get maps downloaded on the IPAD?

    Folks telling you to take your raptor on hells revenge must want to see your truck with damage

    While there is good cell coverage in Moab, the trails are a different story. Download your maps ahead of time. Best time in the fall is from the middle of September until the end of October. Before that it is usually too hot and after that it may be too cold. And I would NOT take a Raptor on Hell's Revenge, but with some damage most of it can be done. It would be cheaper to rent a Jeep or RZR and do it, than fix the damage.

    You must be one of those guys that gets upset if the paint on your skid plate gets scuffed. For me, that's what they are there for.

    Raptor can do Hell's Revenge easily. A little scuffing on the hitch or exhaust pipes is a badge of honor.

    If you got the time I would rent a rzr. My friend and I did that for my birthday you can blast through all the trails fast like hells revenge. Gemini Bridges will easily be doable in the raptor, my 4runner made it fine I'm pretty sure I've seen subarus up top as well.
