While some of us have actually taken this trip several times, it really is a doozy.  We'd only consider this type of trip if you're looking to avoid rental car fees once you're in Colorado or if you're moving across the country.  Good stopover cities are Tulsa or Kansas City.  Those both make for long driving days (about 12-14 hours).  If you have just one go or it will take you about 20 to 21 hours - and that's if you only stop for gas.
