Road Trip

Need some advice....I'll be traveling from Fl to NY next week w/ my '05 unlimited. It has 33's and a rubicon express 3.5 lift. My back seat will be removed and my german shepard will take the space. Also I'll be putting a cargo carrier on the rear. I've changed my oil/lubed, checked fluids, rotated and air pressure. Is there anything I've over looked? It's a six speed w/cruise/soft top.

Anyone else done this kind of travel before in a Jeep? How stiff will I be? I know they are not a comfortable ride for long-distance...

Any suggestions? Thanks

Buchanan 1.5" Version unless you can fab up your own.

They make the ride MUCH more comfortable for long distances and are easily installed with hand tools in under 1 hour by a novice.
