So... You know you own a ZJ when you can appreciate just how spacious the engine bay is. It's not quite like my old truck where I could sit on the bumper, put both feet on the frame rails, and just work on the 318 all day long, but it's really not that bad.
I know I'm a bit slow in replying to this one... but this is a BIG one for me.... worst for me was a '96 Grand Am coupe, changing the spark plugs "by the book" meant removing the aluminum cover bolted to the top of the engine, unbolting two of the engine mounting bolts, rotating the engine forward, re-inserting a mounting bolt to hold it in place so it wouldn't crush you, and finally swapping the plugs.... I love the ZJ engine bay!
