    Spark plugs

    So now that I've started building the Jeep I just realized that it's time to change the plugs whoops at 122k on the stickers🤔 any suggestions on what plugs and wires to run. I'll make sure to let everyone know what the stickers are gapping out at when I pull them tomorrow. I'm curious because I haven't got a rough idle or anything yet just realized the manual calls for 102k I'm 18k over already. I also need to do lower outer tie rod assembly and front right CV axle u joint

    Use what the manufacturer recommends. That's the reason they've lasted so long. As far as the CV joint, not sure what you're talking about.

    Spark plugs

    As WJCO said , use OEM plugs they last long. Make sure the gap is right as well. As to Cv joints part, are you referring to the axle shaft?

    So I changed my plugs and while pulling the original plugs out I was gapping them and they were gapped in betweens .078 to
    .081 the stutter in the idle is definitely gone thankfully

    Great job!

    When I replaced my plugs the originals had all had about a .65 gap. I think the growth in gap was due to wear on the electrodes and the expansion of the metal over years of heat cycles (engine running and then off and cold). That's why I will ensure to routinely replace my plugs and wires according to the OEM recommendations.

    Yeah I will definitely pay more attention to my service times. I bought the Jeep 2 years ago with 52k miles on it I'm sitting at 123k now never forget about my oil though I didn't even think to check the plugs when I bought it. It was so clean haha it's been through hell and back but still runs excellent! Even a little better now with the new plugs. Definitely loving the new idle! It's back like when I bought it. Just wondering now when my clutch will decide to start to go. 132k on the OE clutch is pretty impressive to me. I was saying oh god I doubt it'll make it to 115k haha
