I can't speak specifically about your rig and the trails you'll be on, but I can say that even driving my tall, short wheelbase 40, I've taken on body damage every year I've been to Moab, and I usually pick "easy" trails and drive conservatively. It's wheeling, and damage is part of the game I guess. If you can't lift and armor it, or you're going to be
about body damage, I would reconsider. You can always come out and hitch rides with others on some of the more exciting trails.
