You can have a blast in Moab with a stock Jeep. Lots of fun trails and the stock sport is very capable. Look at Fins and Things for example. I ran that with an open diffed Sport that had a lift and 35's. It would have done ok without the lift.
But... I am a fan of the Rubicon package.
Either Rubicon or Sport, there is no rush, stock both are very capable, lots more capable than many realize.
35" tires are great whether you go Sport or Rubicon. With the Sport's available 3.73 gears you can re-gear when you decide you want to, with the Rubicon's available 4.10's you won't need to re-gear.
Going 37's is easier with the Rubicon.
Whatever you do, don't do a cheap, incomplete lift, get a whole suspension system. Many to choose from, my favorite is AEV. Plenty capable off road and great ride and better than stock handling on the road.
