4200 miles on a camping trip to Utah. 15 day trip, and slept in a roof top tent nine of those nights. The last day of driving home, I was tired!

I towed a pop-up camper from NH to VA for a week and back, about 1400 miles round trip. The Jeep drove great minus the braking distance... Got a little close once, Thank god for brake down lanes!

In 2012 my family and I drove a few clicks over 9000 miles from Maine across country, through Moab, visited family in Carson City, NV for a couple weeks and wheeled locally there, met my father there and him and I did the Rubicon Jamboree. Then my family and I continued down through California to Atascadero, Santa Barbara, then Long Beach to meet some friends. Then headed back east via Albuquerque, Dekalb, TX, Knoxville, TN and over to Jacksonville, NC. From there northward back to Maine.

We did this in 5 weeks and did a lot of fun things along the way. And I'd do it again in a second if I could ever score that much time off work again.

From east Long Island to Portsmouth VA in my 92 YJ last year. Then 2 weeks driving around with 20-30 miles a day in the area. Then back to Long Island. Turns out my Tcase yoke was snapped and I had no fluid in it the entire time. Darn thing still worked for another month before I had to swap it. Love those 231s!!!

2100 miles from Florida to Arizona in my TJ with a loaded U-Haul trailer out back.All was fine until I got caught in a cross wind in the mountains of New Mexico. Didn't wreck or anything but the pucker factor was pretty high.

LoL, after reading these I remembered about the first time I drove on a paved road. I would drive the feed truck on our ranch when I was 4. My longest jeep trip so far has been from Boise to Williston ND in the dead of winter, most of the time in part time 4 wheel drive. About 30 hours that time. A lot of the miles could have been through fields or off road, I wouldn't have known I just followed the gps.
