Tire Pressure: Having proper tire pressure is very important both on the way up to the mountains as well as during "spirited" driving. Tire pressure may be altered just before a run in order to change vehicle handling characteristics as well as for grip/tire wear between the trip up and the actual run itself.

Check tire wear: You don't want to go up to the touge with belts showing on your tires. You should always have ample tread.

Brakes: Check pad level and for even wear, aswell as brake lines for leaks or cracking.

Oil Level: This goes with out saying and should be checked regularly on any car. But as a precaution this should be double checked before the trip up aswell as before a run and before the trip home.

Extras: Have extra fluids on hand...power steering, brake & clutch, transmission, oil, water and/or antifreeze.

Tools: Some key tools for your particular car are wise to bring.
Open ended wrenches, socket set, screwdrivers, pliers, flashlight, and of course ZIPTIES and DUCT TAPE.

Torque:
Check the torque on parts that you've recently added...parts falling off on touge=not good!



Other Items:

-Check all fluids, power steering, brakes & clutch, coolant, washer, etc
-Make sure to have enough gas to finish the run
-Fire Extinguisher
-Bring walkie talkies to communicate (cellphones typically suck in the mountains...except VERIZON FTW)
-Cash (it's king) Just in case!
-Remove loose items from vehicle
-Maps/GPS
-Camera


You never know when you may have a problem up there and gotta get it fixed to head back.

And if you've added any suspension components since the last outing, make sure you check the torque before you go.... Last thing you'd want in s sway bar coming disconnected or flipping on you...
