I would say that should do it, It's a 'yota. No worries :).

Those are the most important, but you forgot a good one, WASHER FLUID. This time of year you can run into some serious crap on the road and it's good to have a full tank.

Also, just give it a general visual inspection to see if anything is hanging from hitting something on the road or whatever.

Also also, make sure your registration and insurance are up to date since out of state cops are less likely to be forgiving about that!

Have a good trip!

and raise the rear spring perches all the way up if you have coilovers and are loading up with baggage! :)

The washer fluid.. good catch, Alex!

Make sure you check the pressure in your spare too.

My usual "last minute check list" for a 'trip' is air, all fluids, clean windows, lug nuts (and make SURE you have you locking lugnut key...), insurance papers, driver's license, cellphone, CDs, maps, potty stop, and GO. :D

Enjoy!
