      Ehhh, Just show up. Idaho is just an extension of Utah anyway. The only difference is that you can buy Beer and Lotto tickets here...

      Just moved from Detroit to Draper and decided to bring my explorer along. Nearly every truck out here is lifted it seems. Are there many trails out here a stock X could handle?

      Tons of old dirt roads all over the state of Utah for you to go and explore.

      Farmington Canyon is a good trail, just dirt and small rocks in the road. The hardest part of the trail is in Bountiful on the hillside where the B is, a couple small hills you gotta climb, but nothing a family sedan couldn't handle. Just beware of snow up there. I pulled a guy driving an Isuzu Rodeo out with my old Durango that was 3 wheeling off the side of the mountain because he "tried to go where the snow wasn't so deep." It wasn't "so deep" because it dropped off a couple feet.

      Five mile pass between Eagle mountain and Tooele I have heard is a good place, but it can get rocky there. I took a trip to Moab in October before I moved back east, and there are tons of trails that a stock explorer can handle

      cool


      Yea iv been doing some more exploring around here. Went up North Skyline drive a few times and found some fun places off down some trails. Really got to see how well the traction control works with open diffs. not to shabby.

      Iv gone through the pass from Eden to Logan and found some cool trails there just that my tired arnt so good anymore so no steep hill climbs for me right now.

      What im really looking for is some good dirt/mud fun. I know its the rocky mountains but come on there has to be some good fun mud trails or something around here.

      I really dont like the rock crawling or rocky trails because 1 im stock mostly and 2 i dont like how much it beats up the truck that im still paying off lol. I kinda so miss the sand/dirt/mud trails from back east but someday i will have a rig for rocks.

      Sounds like you've got a plan!

      I'm here in Layton myself.

      I just picked up my explorer and it's bone-stock. I also have a 2wd Avalanche that's no good for anything in the dirt. :) That and it's my wife's truck and she'd kill me if I did anything do it. I'm not aware of too many places around here but I know there is quite a bit down in the Moab area.

      I have a plan to drive up to knab/st George via Farmington NM - I'm particularly interested in the areas where John Carter was filmed. Fascinated by the rock formations. My truck is like most of yours (basically stock) and I work too hard on it to wreck it. Would like to try some back roads that are tame enough. I would love to have some conversations with locals before I head out. No tight schedule, retired, want to hit northern rim and maybe cicrcle through Pheonix before I go back to Texas. Traveling alone unless things change.

      Welcome to the boards!

      Sounds like you have a solid plan. There are some trails in Moab that cater to stock or near stock vehicles. I've always been too scared but, they are there.

      Thank you

      As of right now, I sort of know one person in Utah. Thanks for the response...my truck is a hand-me-down after being bought new, wrecked and driven hard by my wife and daughter and left wheezing in my driveway for me to fix. Lots of body work, a door skin, new trans, borrowed engine, all new running gear in the front and some paint . . . lots of work. Don't want to scrape rocks with it.
      Saw your John Wayne quote - you know the story about the distinct possibility that he and the crew of The Conqueror getting cancer because the filming was done in Utah . . . just down wind from the Nevada nuclear site?
      I'll post a picture of whatever I drive up there so you will know when to wave!

      Actually I didn't. My step-dad is a huge John Wayne fan and growing up I couldn't stand his old westerns. The older I get, the more I appreciate them, especially his later movies.

      If you happen to make it up to Layton, shoot a message here, I check it daily and maybe we can get together to do lunch or something, especially if it's on a weekend.
