I have been to Moab with my RZR S, and there were ATVs with me.
There are many different degrees of difficulty at Moab, and many of the trails are pretty tame, if a bit on the bumpy side.
You would only wreck the ACE there if you tried to do the hard core 4x4 trails with the 6 foot sheer rock faces and stuff, without winch, tow ropes, and buddies.

I highly recommend buying one or both of these books:
http://www.amazon.com/ATV-Trails-Guide-Moab-UT/dp/0966497678
Guide To Moab, UT Backroads & 4-Wheel Drive Trails (2nd Edition): Charles A. Wells, Shelley Mayer: 9781934838068: Amazon.com: Books
There are a lot more trails in the 4x4 guide, but the ATV guide has a few that are not in the 4x4 guide due to width restrictions, and you could do them in the ACE.

Those books have everything you need to make a successful Moab trip. Directions to trail heads, trail difficulty and descriptions, pictures, parking information, GPS waypoints, turn by turn directions on the trail, local resources, local rules, and other helpful information. Those guide books are worth their weight in gold.

I'm going to Moab in October, and if my wife were not riding with me, I would totally take the ACE.
A UHMW skid plate would be a good idea though, to help you slip over big rocks and protect the frame. But it is not necessary.
