A receiver hitch will do a good job of protecting your rear end on the trails you registered for. Pretty much all the ledges and steep climbs you'll see are straight on but it will be a little weird until you get used to the sound of steel scraping the rock especially on Fins and Things were really steep climbs on and off of rock formations are the norm. Leave the receiver empty while wheeling.

Don't worry about it you'll really enjoy that one.

I agree you'll want some rocker protection.

Otherwise be able to carry at least one gallon of water per passenger in your truck per day. Weather can go either way. Make sure you have good shoes, leather work gloves and a rain jacket on the trail. Double check your truck against the requirements posted.

And if you bring adult beverages into Utah keep them out of sight in the case of a traffic violation. Don't want a 2nd ticket. You can buy when you get there but its a PITA and expensive.

If you are planning to camp at Slick Rock Campground you'll want to get your reservations in pretty soon. It does fill up.
