You are going to have a BLAST!!
Sure wish I could convoy along just for the ride.

Have a fun and safe journey, post up a progress report and pics when you can.

yes the jeep will be fine .
just service it before you leave and give your self lots of time so you can take breaks.
and i took my 53 cj 3b from here in texas back home to va and back and did it at a top speed of 55 , but when i was crossing the smokey and blue ridge mountains it made the trip a trip of a life time.

just stop at a half of tank and fill up and do a walk around the jeep for you and it along the way.

take ear plugs and a bikini top if your doing it top off like i did ( ear plugs were picked up in va for trip back......lesson learned)

plus you have something i did not have 20 years ago . you have a new family world wide by being on here , so if you come thru wichita falls texas you have a place to stay and a shop to service the jeep if it needs something and i would bet my last dollar if you post your route you will get the same offer of help and a place to stay your whole trip and what a trip that would be .

have fun

Get your kicks on Route 66!

Your route completely circles around the Colorado mountains. Like you were trying to avoid us. Do we stink?

Did a roundtrip Boston to NC in April, logged about 2k miles, and had a blast. Envy you doing the x country thing, wish I had the time.

AND you can ALWAYS say you did it. I did the cross country thing in a brand new Durango 8 years ago and spent more time in Dodge Dealerships on the way than time on the road (POS). Bring some duct tape, channel locks and a 4 way screwdriver, kick up the tunes and watch the faces of all the midwesterners checkin out your rig with Connecticut tags and smile big.

Good for you and have a great and safe trip!!!!!!

Here in North Canton Ohio, not but 15 minutes or so south of 76 as you pass through Akron....I'll shoot you a PM with my number in case you're rolling through and would like a bed to rest on or to at least meet up for lunch or dinner depending on schedules. There's a bob evans just off of 76 in Tallmadge, Ohio as well as several other places along the way...
