depends on the setup. If it's real stiff and bouncy than its going to be a long ride. If it can suck up pot holes I wouldn't wory much

I drove my Lincoln from LA to Lexington KY. I did put stock wheels on though. That was 6 batteries, coil under in the rear, not super stiff springs. Didn't have any problems.

Yeah you'll be good as long as the car is up to it. Just set the car at the right height where it rides best and you'll be straight. We stopped for 3 hours in the middle of the night, but other than that drove 45 hours straight.

If your car rides low throw some bigger coils in there,if something happens like a check or dump going out you would still want to be able to drive safely with it dumped out...

With proper engine and car maintenance it should be a nice ride... your tires might wear pretty bad if you're not at a good height.. I've heard that the mountains are tough on engines.. many vehicles tend to overheat.. because of the strain and lack of air..
