1400 mile trip tomorrow

im going to make a trip up to pa from fla tomorrow. i havent had the tj very long, but my mom wants it so ill give it to her to drive for the summer or so. ive done recently, belt, plugs, tires, brakes, oil, coolant, t-stat- waterpump, rad flush. so pretty much its good to go.

do these cars like to be driven more than 20 hours at once, i dont stop i just gas and go.

is there anything else i am missing to check over my jeep? thanks!

tire pressure, fluids, AC (if you are going to have your top up) and well that is all I can think of

I was thinking of bringing my dog along but I'd have dog hair lined seats afterwards.

I'd like to take the dog, but it's going to be hard to find motels that allow dogs and we can't leave it in the car or motel. I agree that kenneling charges add up after a few days. If you're traveling alone, I can see how a dog would be good company.
