Multiple trips in the YJ from San Diego, CA to Bristol, TN and back with my wife and both daughters, with all the luggage that teen girls and a wife needs plus my little bag. Had a blast every trip. Some of it was even done with the top down and the wimminz hair tangled all to hell when we stopped for dinner.

New Orleans to Hobbs, Nm in our old Cherokee. Belt crapped out 30 miles from our farm, that was interesting.

In one go, Windsor, Ontario to Whitehorse, Yukon (~5000 KM) in 4 days. But in the 3 weeks before that, I drove from Windsor to Toronto to a paintball field outside of Wyandotte, Oklahoma and back to Windsor (~3000 KM).

~8000 KM in less than a month. Surprisingly comfortable, actually.

farthest in its lifetime? Houston, TX to Denver, CO in 2 days. Leaked almost all its oil out as I'm told (i was about 7 years old at the time...). Farthest since I've had it? Houston, TX to Malvern, AR (60 miles short of Little Rock). Once every one or two months I make the trip between Dallas and Houston to visit my folks...really takes a toll on the old girl nowadays...gotta basically check everything and do a mini tune up before every 50+ mile trip.

Wish me luck, tomorrow I will be hauling everything in my dorm back (minus furniture), packed tight to the roof, at least 500 pounds of extra weight...250 miles.

In the Jeep, Phoenix to Los Angeles... back and forth a few times.


Longest road trip I ever did, Los Angeles to somewhere north of Toronto, then back.

only 200 miles each way to the offroad park in Arkansas and back. Once. That's the farthest I've ever driven in any vehicle. I love road trips, just not driving them.

Roundtrip from Lafayette Louisiana to Branson Missouri. The JK did it with ease and comfort. I never would have done it in my 95 YJ. Not bagging on you YJ'rs, but mine was wore out, especially the leaf springs and the frame was twisted from previous owner rolling it (I found out later after I purchased it)
