road trip

well guys i'll be leaving for college soon since team workouts for basketball are starting soon and my new home is in gilbertsville, PA. Thing is im a little hesitant to drive the jeep loaded down with all my crap for that long of a road trip.. I know for a fact im going to be needing new tires for the trip and an oil change as well... I just got a brand new brake system a couple weeks ago so im not worried there... just wondering if anyone knows anything else i should check/repair before i leave.

I would make sure your cooling system is in good shape and all fluids changed and if you need new tires then tires as well. Good Luck.

If a tuneup hasn't been done in a while, now would be the time to do it.

Of course check all the fluids...and the check the tire pressure, even on the new tires right before leaving. Also, make sure to bring extra fluids, rags, flashlight, survival gear, etc.

Florida to PA is a long enough trip
