Wally Meyers When we bought ours new this year I told the salesman when we picked it up that we were going to Gatlinburg Tenn in the morning. He said Milwaukee to Gatlinburg and back isn't a good thing. We went and ran around in the mountains. Must have been a little over 1500 miles.

MR.CLIFFORD Flew out to CA in February and picked up a jeep in Temecula, CA. Drove it home and the GPS said 1543 miles. We stopped in Arizona and played around in Sedona for a few. Then headed home.

2006LJRubicon Cincnnati OH to Key West Florida this past summer. Kept the top down the entire trip there. It was amazing. Nothing like driving across the seven mile bridge in a Jeep looking at the beautiful turqoise water, I wish I was there now. But the trip home seemed even longer.

Going to work on a Monday morning.

Strangely, going home on Friday is the shortest.

I did the smokies. Unbelievable sites and winding roads went up across cumberland gap in winter. 4 wheel drive came in handy.

Geoff@Bestop It's a variable scale.

I moved from Eugene, Oregon to Seattle in a 1960 CJ5. That's only 300-ish miles, and I've done lots of longer trips in Wranglers since then.

But a fully loaded CJ5 with duffle bags strapped to the roof, and old tired springs going its maximum 50 mph up I-5 - those 300 miles should be at least tripled.

osu50sprinter I moved from Columbus OH to Vail CO....had all my S&#t packed in it...the whole front seat, back seat to 12in below the roof and a hitch hauler on the back loaded with stuff...was about 1400 miles...was an awesome trip!!! thats the longest so far but wanna do more!

ParaCAD 'bout 500 miles to key west back in June where the wife and i got hitched

There is a LOT of heat down there..lol even the water (ocean and pool) was about 90 degrees...lol

Got_Mud? I work outta the house 2-3 days a week, usually. My average run is 400 miles. My long is just shy of 600. An *easy* day is 300. Yeah, I change my oil every 3 weeks. Good thing it's easy.
Last year I drove 54k miles.... on track to do 60k this year. Since the end of March, they have all been in the Jeep. With no cruise control, in all weather and all driving conditions. Wouldn't trade it for anything, though! (and it keeps the mileage off my other car!)

No luck pokey. All these websites you see on things like bigfoot and ufos are like I found out. Just someone with a computer in a closet with nothing better to do. No big rooms with maps and data spewing out on sightings ect. Did see some stuffed bigfoot dolls and plastic aliens though. And also found out how big Texas really is. Also Pecos Texas is just a hole in the wall. Between Pecos and Carlsbad caverns they still have roadside signs in the arid landscape That advertise air conditioned cabins, air conditioned lunch counter. Looks like they are from the 50's.

navret 1978 camp pendaleton to nj. in 76 cj, roof off first day and a half, can you say "wind burn"

s3nt3nc3d Longest trip in my Jeep--400 miles one way. Bout 500 on the way back but I split it over 2 days to stop and visit my brother for a night. No cruise control.

Longest trip ever mileage-wise--drove from Ohio to Kansas and back over like 4 days when I was 18. I think it was a 1500 mile trip total.

Longest trip time-wise--Ohio to Illinois for Christmas 2 years ago and an ice storm hit while I was about halfway there. Went from doing 65 on the interstate to 15-20 the rest of the way in a 2wd pickup truck. No salt on the roads due to budget cuts (occasionally we'd hit areas that had trucks dumping sand), I got on the cb and joined up in a convoy of truckers and cruised the rest of the way with them at a slow but steady and safe pace. Cars and trucks were all over the ditches and for awhile the interstate ahead of us was completely gridlocked and had to be shut down due to pile ups on the ramps. Made a 4 1/2 - 5 hr trip a 10 hr trip.

pokey ^ you were lied to. I'm not sure about the exhaust, but you can't improve on the stock intake, and chips don't do a thing but empty your wallet.

With a 4cyl 6 speed doing the 80 mph speed limit across Texas no problem.

SUBZEROCOOL I drove a few hundred miles here in the heart of California one day. Top down, no jeep bra and no 45, sleeveless shirt and it was over 100 needless to say I had to have a few drinks when I got home to help relieve the sun burn.
