I've been to Moab twice since I got my FJ and with Donahoe coilovers in front, Toytec springs/Donahoe shocks in back, Goodyear 305/70/17 MT/R's (which are 34" tires) on factory steel wheels. I've done some of the hardest trails out there without incident. So, to answer your question, a 3" lift and slightly oversized tires will get you through pretty much anything you're likely to encounter in Moab (unless you really go looking).

Hey Jim, agreed. Most trails, the 3" is adequate. Only been to Moab once, but that place seems pretty wide open (which I love BTW), but what if this was staring you down:
