I think so. Can you pull the plug and use it at the parts store to compare?

Already bought a 2" (according to O'reilly's computer for this part)... if it doesn't fit just right it'll be a bit of a walk to the auto parts store.

No big deal... as we all know owning a YJ means walking a lot! : )

Haha... I decided to pick up an additional smaller plug just in case.

But what do you use to prevent the plug from rotating as you tighten?

Any ideas?
