Longer trip

This is actually about my 97 ZJ grand cherokee. I will be moving from Florida to NC and it's a 600 mile drive. The car has 198xxx miles on it but it has no knocking, leaks, smoke or nothing and was wanting opinions on if it will be okay to try to attempt to drive it up. Thanks!

600 miles is nothing. I've got over 200K on mine and I routinely do a 2000 mile round trip each year to visit family in it, '99 TJ.

Where in NC are you moving to? I've got a nephew near Wilmington who we went to see last year for his wedding. Just short of a 2000 mile trip in my TJ. It was a blast rolling through the mountains in KY, WV and NC with the top down and then hitting the beach once we got to Wilmington :-) Really boring across Illinois and Indiana though, LOL.

where's your sense of adventure?

I once bought a $800 XJ sight unseen off ebay and drove it home 200 miles after only checking oil and coolant...
