Usual recommendation interval is at 500 miles and then every other oil change or something like that. I say torque em, make your trip. Peek at em every once in a while to ensure they arent working loose and then just retorque them when you return. Or you could do as Impact says and just throw the wrench in and check em whenever you feel the need.

90 YJ 5.2 Magnum, AX-15, 231 SYE'd
D44 front, welded/trussed AMC20HD rear. 4.56 gears soonish.

I'm thinking about doing a flip front and rear, but I need to wait for a few paychecks before I have the money. Just as long as it gets done before I head out to colorado in August

For what I use my Jeep for, SOA is a little overkill. most of the people I wheel with run 33's, and a few are on 35's-37's. My goal is to get on 35's while still maintaining a lower center of gravity, so the most I'll lift is is maybe another inch or two.
