I hear ya, mine almost has 90k and im heading to arizona for school here shortly and thats going to be a 3500 mile trip with a loaded up car up and down the mountains.

Personally id get a tuneup(include air filter), change oil and rotate tires

How far a ride you taking, when ever I go
~ first pray ~ get u'r self some holy water bless the car hehe
then bring oil, anti-frezze, P/S & Brake Fluid for the trip
Check the alignment
Oil change before you go if over 3k miles
Fuel Filter if not done in last 10k
Check the brakes, visual how much room from the chirper
And grease the joints

You should be good to go ~
Thats my list before I go to MI from PA its about a 600+ mile ride one way

G/L and safe sailing :)
