Start with Fins & Things as your warm up run to get used to really steep climbs and descents on slickrock. The rest of your choices look OK. Consider adding porcupine rim to the list, fun obstacles and great views.
Kane Creek is a lot of fun, too, and will give you a change of scenery.
Milts is delicious. You can stop there on the way back from Fins & Things and from Porcupine Rim.
cool thanks guys i will check out Porcupine rim also im pretty excited, was also thinking of taking the gateway rd back to colo instead of 70 have u guys done it, how long did it take you

Milt's = YUM!
Going through Gateway will add about 2 hours, maybe 3 if you take US50 and US285 instead of heading up through Grand Junction and I-70. The drive over the La Sals and Paradox Valley are very much worth it, though.

from moab going home to gunni i used to go thru norwood then to ridgeway. It's a little longer than the i70 route not near as long as going thru gateway but nice and easy and a peaceful drive. You won't have an issue with any of the trails on your list.

I've done all that and then some (I think every trail except Moab Rim and Pritchet) in my 80 on 33's. All good fun. Prepare to have your view of the world altered!
Air down more than you think. I usually run about 15 lbs in BFG A/T's. You can do that or less in your larger tires. If you are slipping, its most likey because you need to let out more air. The traction is astonishing.
I also have the CDL button and run most things open diff'd all the way around until its a really steep climb. Traction is that good. I rarely use front lockers because it makes it so difficult to turn on the rock.
Its a real mental game out there....
I'll be passing your way on the way to the San Juan's
Have a great time.
cool thanks guys,wes i think ill go the norwood way thanks for the tip ridgeway only takes me about a hour and 15 to get back to gunny Inukshuk maybe ill see u on the other side, i have sand colored 80 on 35s im nucken pumped
