Planning a 2,000 mile trek in the 2.5 What should I check?

Car is running great. 161,000 miles
Trans pan drop and filter change at 55k ago along with the diff oil

Trans was drained an refilled about 30k ago along with diff oil

New radiator

New timing belt and water pump 52,000 ago

Frequent oil changes.

New CV axles joints

Leaks oil from distributor I think.

What else would you do to get her ready for a straight 80mph drive 17hrs from NJ to Florida.

I feel very confident that she is fine. Wanted to check in with the experts.
Thanks!

Check your accessory belts and tires as precaution. All I can think of is to keep up with your fluids (especially coolant and oil) and you should be fine. Good luck and keep us posted!
