Thanks again to everyone for the helpful advice. I will be sure to post some pics and a little trip log, hopefully with the good kind of adventures. Putting my road tool kit together tomorrow and flying out on Saturday. PO found us a scenic spot right on the Pacific ocean to spend our first night which should be a great start to our trip. Wish us luck!

Fuel Filters - can't live with out them. Get pretty good at changing them on the roadside especially if rig has sat for any length of time.

Forwarned is...well...forewarned...
The tranny is set to release from 1st to 2nd if the RPMs get too high...keeps the tranny from self-destructing, but the first time it did that to me going DOWN a steep grade midway into a curve was gut-wrenching...uhm, might want to take a clean pair of skivvies
...I had the tranny checked out, and was told that it was fine...sometimes you just have to use the brakes, and if yer overloaded like we are, plan extra time for side-of-the-road brake cooling and garment change...

I would check all the tires. I had a bad run with Chinese made tires. Three blowouts in three trips. The rate for a tire on the side of the road on Saturday night is criminal. The only other thing that has stopped us on the road was a blown hose which I was able to fix with a peace of heater hose that I normally carey. I would also check brakes and wheel bearings regularly in the first few hundred miles. Remember it is no Miata that trip I took down the blue ridge parkway towing our Jeep nearly set our brakes on fire. Have fun.
