HEY DEREK...THAT ALL DEPENDS ON ANY MODIFICATION.....ooppss didn't notice the caps on. I always used Bosch platinum till I went with all my mods and was suggested to use Autolites with a colder range. Like I said it all depends on if you plan on modding...if not then you can't go wrong with Bosch.

way too much to list.
Thought for the day:
If GOD gave HIS only son for us...can't we at least give HIM an hour of our time a day.

I just replaced the plugs on my 'stock' 97' 5.2 V8 about 6,000 miles ago with Champion Truck Plugs. So far, so good and heard positive feedback about these plugs.

I run Champion Truck plugs in both my jeep and they have performed very well over the years.

Just stick to OEM Champion Truck Style Plugs.

What advantages will you get using aftermarket plugs, it is something I've never understood. The guys who built your Jeep actually know a thing or two!

Agreed, you cannot go wrong with using whatever the owners’ manual states. Using so-called better plugs is not necessarily better.
