Jeep Rentals in Moab Utah

We are heading for Moab in April right after the Safari Jeep Jamboree, which ends 4/5/2015. Has anyone had any experience or recommendations for the best/least expensive Jeep rental companies.
Thanks

There are at least 6 Jeep rental agencies in Moab, I've seen them but not used any. I suggest you start calling and ask about prices or use Yelp or other reviews to decide. Perhaps my response will bump your post back into more experienced Jeep renters view.

We've used Moab Adventures a couple of times. Jeeps are decked out nicely and priced reasonably. Nice and friendly people.

Are there easy trails for the inexperience off-road drivers?

Ok Jeepers, I know your out there, I too will be visiting Moab and interested in trails, rentals and all information.

I have a 4wd Tahoe that sets pretty low so was thinking of renting a jeep unless there is enough to see just with the Tahoe.

Another prospective renter here. We will be there around 4/18. We have a F150 4x4, but would prefer to rent a jeep. Would like to see something spectacular at the end of the trail.

I have been Jeeping in Moab every year for the last 13 years and have been on almost all the popular trails many times. There are trails for all levels of Jeeps and drivers. I haven't rented a Jeep but the rental company's must provide maps or GPS's showing the recommended trails otherwise they wouldn't be getting there Jeeps back in one piece.
I strongly suggest not going it alone, find another Jeep or group to go with, it's much safer.

I echo the comments of not going out solo. Always go off-roading with at least one other vehicle for safety!

Loads of easy to moderate trails. They provide maps and you sign a waiver stating the trails you are not allowed to drive. Our favorites are Gemini Bridges (easy) and Chickens Corners (moderate as long as you don't have height fears). Another worthy drive is Onion Creek.

We were just out there this past fall. As stated, there are numerous Jeep rental companies. The rates I saw were all around $150 - $175 per day with small discounts for multiple days.

There are enough trails that are really not much more than "bad roads" to keep you busy for a couple of weeks. Within the parks, specifically Arches or Canyonlands, there are trails that most any high clearance vehicles could easily handle (as well as many outside the parks). The rangers at the visitor centers can help you with both finding them and determining if they would be appropriate for you. They'll even show you photos of some of the obstacles on the trails you're considering.

One of our last days there we got on what I considered a challenging trail for solo travel, not really expecting it to be as rough as it turned out to be based on what I'd seen at the visitor center. You must know both your limitations and those of your vehicle. The trail included numerous steep rocky ledges/shelves that required my using the lockers. I ended up turning around when I came to a portion with a three to four foot drop/shelf as we were alone and I didn't know what was ahead, or if I'd be able to get back if I had continued beyond that point and came to something totally impassable. Had I been with a group I'd have been a bit more adventurous.
