Hey Guys,

I hope I'm not abusing the forum rules by posting this question in the wrong place, but I was wondering if you could help me out with something. I'm currently in Ontario Canada getting ready to move back to California. I plan on driving my 97' Cherokee sport all the way. Do you guys have any recommendations on what I should get checked out at the mechanics before I go. Also, would it be a good idea to pick up some spare parts at a junkyard, for stuff that might typically go out? Any advice or ideas, or even reasons why I shouldnt drive my Cherokee across the U.S. would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot guys.

I'd carry the same things I'd carry in any vehicle: spare fluids, spare water, spare belt, spare hoses, spare hose clamps...hmmm, what else..

Before leaving, check your fluids. If you are concerned, get a tune up if it will make you feel better while driving. If your Cherokee is in reasonable shape, you shouldn't have to carry a bunch of parts. Just the stuff that is prone to give when you really don't need it to, and that stuff is listed above.

Just the opinion of a not very mechanically inclined guy.
