plugs, wires, etc.?

New Question(s)....

1) which spark plugs do i want?
2) Which wires? What size (8mm, 9mm)?
3) i know that i can just go to autozone and get a cap and rotor for cheap, but i want the best for my jeep...will this do? (or Napa, or wherever)

Id like to have the best for the money as far as basic service goes. What have you experienced with?

I use Bosch plugs and Jegs has a deal for MSD cap and rotor
I have an Accel coil though because I broke the "power tower" for my MSD and cant seem to find a replacement..

Anyone know where to find one??
