Jeeper For A Day
We've frequently labeled Moab, Utah, as the off-roader's Mecca. And it's anaccurate description as far as we're concerned. But what if you don't own a Jeep? Or you live thousands of miles away from Utah and just don't have the time in your schedule or funds to trailer your junk to and from Moab? Outta luck, right? Never gonna hit those red rock trails? Doomed to walk the Earth without ever experiencing the seal-like bark of your tires clawing the slickrock? Not so. There are several companies in Moab that not only rent Jeeps, but rent them equipped to handle some of the more scenic trails like Golden Spike, Hell's Revenge, and more. So read on for some fly- or drive-in Jeep rental options and consider Moab for your next Jeep vacation destination-even if you're from the other side of the world.
