My local ride buddies use CB. Seems like ham would limit me more.

Oh and I have not bought either yet.

Cruise Moab requires a CB radio for all drivers, even those who have a ham radio. This is a straight copy from the Cruise Moab website:

All vehicles are required to have a CB radio.
  • Preferred setup: installed CB radio with an external antenna. Please note: If you have a Ham radio, we prefer that you also have at least a hand-held CB, since most trail leaders will not have Ham. (We love amateur radio, but we recognize that only a small portion of our attendees will have it).
  • If you have a hand-held CB units, please buy the DC cord so that the battery won't go dead halfway through a trail.
  • "Family-band" radios will not be acceptable at all.
  • There is a good CB shop in Moab. If you show up to tech inspection with no CB radio, plan to spend some cash and time at the Moab CB shop.

Once you go HAM you'll never look back.

Unless your wheeling companions have no HAM. Then you must endure the poor quality of comms that a CB provides

But to the OP, go get a CB, quality antenna, tune it and you'll be all set up for CM. Then start studying for the HAM test.

So much this. It's so easy to think the HAM is just a more expensive radio, but it's not even close in capability or use ability. Ask the HDC guys about the differences, because there's once incident that convinced most of them to switch to HAM.
