MOAB trail recommendations for Dbl Cab LB

First off, hello from NW Washington!

The wife and I will be spending a bit of time in Moab this summer on our summer road trip during the last week of July/1st week of August. We plan on running a couple trails in the area as well as spending a few days exploring the White Rim road and camping along the way. I have done some research, and will continue to research, on the local trails. I bought a guide book as well like a typical tourist but my questions are more Tacoma specific, so here I am.
I have a Dbl Cab long bed, which before we leave will be running Fox CO's and TC UCA's in front, and for current budget purposes will be running 3-leaf AAL with stock shocks in the rear. I will be doin' up some sliders before we leave but will be running stock bumpers.

Curious what trails people would recommend for the longer wheelbase Tacomas. I am no pro off road but also not a total newb or idiot. I would rather not bash up anything other than bumpers if I can help it but realize that is always a possibility. Anyway I appreciate any advice locals or those with experience have to offer and I look forward to checking out the area for the first time. Thanks!

Sweet thanks! That is one we have on our for sure list on a coworker's recommendation. Good to hear it is a good choice from a fellow long wheel base. Love your truck BTW, I've lurked around your build page before.

I had been through that thread. Great pics. Looked like a blast. Seems the red long bed was similarly set up to mine which was cool to see.

Yeah i kinda figured the bumper would take a beating. As long as it comes home with me I'll be alright. I told my wife the bumpers are only temporary anyway She may think I'm kidding... Good thing she's fine with spending money on the truck as long as we have it!

Good to know about hells revenge I wondered about that one mostly because I'd love to go out and see it if nothing else. Thanks.

white rim is pretty sweet! But keep in mind that you need permits to camp anywhere on that trail. It's about 120 miles moab to moab. Friends and I did the whole thing on mountain bikes with a sag wagon for support. The trail is pretty mild we took an older 80's toyota van and a honda passport. Both Had 4x4 that we needed to get up some of the trail.
If you can get some permits and camp at "air port".

Got the reservations made thanks! Not a very popular time for permits they said because of the temps.

Fin's and Things, Chicken Corners, Hell's Revenge and Lockhart Basin are all pretty fun. My cousin has a 1st gen with a 3in and I have a Fabtech 6in. You'll have a blast.

I can't really recommend Gold Bar Rim to a DCLB...



But SevenMile Rim would be fine. (Sorry, no snap for that one)

Also, Fins has a couple spots that are much easier with a rear locker.

Watched a 6" lifted Access Cab really struggle on a couple of the climbs that they tried to do unlocked before finally switching on the locker to make it. (EDIT - there may have been a bypass on both of those climbs, though - can't recall for sure.)

Heck no!!! Exactly what I expected from TW! I, like most people, have a strong love hate relationship with this site. Love lookin around, but hate the dissatisfaction it can create with the current state of my Tacoma. There are just too many expensive bits to WANT!
I would love to make it out in spring or fall but they are usually busy times at work and vacation isn't always an option which suck. Good thing we like the dry desert heat i guess cuz I'm sure it'll be plenty hot in July/Aug

Good tip on extra fluids. Moab wheeling is just one stop on a 3600 mile round trip we will be making. I'll have to do some planning to take care of the ol' yota and keep her happy so we get home incident free.
