Well reading this thread inspired me to check mine. I bought this Jeep a few years ago for my daughter and it came with a book of all the maintenance that has been done. Seemed very thorough, many pages but I never read all the details. I assumed it had platinum plugs and gas mileage around town was about 15.

So I started through the details yesterday. The freaking spark plugs have never been changed. 148,000 miles on the original plugs. The gaps were almost an 1/8". I can't believe the thing ran, let alone ran pretty well. Take a look!

I put the new plugs (exact same ones) back in, if they worked that well that long, no sense in changing.

Back when I first got my 02 I immediately changed items like plugs and fluids. Mine looked just like those. Guess they were originals also with 80k on them. Couldn't really figure how it was running at all. Sort of scary but most of the other maintenance on mine seemed to be done in a timely manner since the fluids all looked like they had been changed on time.

Lots of people for some reason think plugs will last 100,000 miles or more .
Heck I changed mine the first time at about 22,000 , then every 25,000 after that so easy to do on the KJs and with copper plugs being inexpensive why not

Motor is designed for a copper plug, anything else is a waste of money.
