01 XJ Sport spark plug recommendations?

I'm about to change plugs in my 01 XJ Sport. It has the H.O. 4.0 and calls for the RC12ecc. I see folks say there are several different plugs you can run. When it is warmed up and idleing I feel a slight miss. What are you guys opinions on best plug to run for daily driving?

Get NGKs.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

I usually get the copper plus ones from AutoZone and they last me for awhile and make the engine run good. They are $2.00 a plug. But plug wires make the difference. Have found that good plug wires are better.

Sounds good. I've run NGKs in my Honda forever. Never had a problem. I'm on my way to get some now. Should I pick a spark plug wire puller up while I'm there?

Never knew there was a spark plug wire puller. All of them are easy to get off. 1 and 6 are tricky.

It has coil packs . Looking at them now. Going to let it cool off awhile. Just drove it. Got the NGK's. 4 bolts and move a couple of hoses and I guess it should come off.???

Guess this thing has a block heater on it. It has a 110v connector coming out from under intake Manifold. I'm guessing that is what this is. Don't need this in Mississippi I don't think!

NGK's Gotta GO.....My Jeep will not get to operating temperature. I know it is cool outside, but it should at least get to 210 degrees and it isn't ...Probably around 180. I can lliterally see the gas needle moving. Even with my old plugs I had better gas consumption. Guess I will put new plugs like I had back in there. Were the NGK's suppose to be used with the coil packs our distributer model XJ's
