Spark Plugs Change 2008 Liberty Limited 3.7

Need help trying to locate the spark plugs? Is there individual coils on every plug? How do I go about changing the plugs myself, not completely inexperienced. But I am having a difficult time locating the plugs. Also which type plugs do you guys use. Engine 3.7 with auto trans and towing 5000 lbs. Is there any graphic to look at.
If anyone has any tips / suggestions to make this job easier please let me know.

Thanks In Advance

Yup there under the coil pack. Check out http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f28/change-spark-plugs-02-07-jeep-liberty-kj-1106657/ It looks a little different but is the same engine. Make sure you blow all the dirt and dust off around the spark plug and coil pack because if dirt falls in the socket hole it goes directly into your engine. The factory sparks are pretty darn tight in there. There all easy except the rear pass side one, youll need a universal elbow to get the socket in there. Plugs i put in are the originals that came with it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GZGV3E/ref=oss_product. Theres no point in putting those so called high performance plugs since the engine will not benefit from them, just my opinion. Just put in NGK ZFR6F-11G 6987 Plugs.

I would just stick with the ones that came with the engine.

ELT, In that video, the battery was not disconnected, I always disconnect the battery before do any electrical maintenance on a vehicle.

no need to disconnect the battery as long as u dont keep the ignition on or dont start the car it should b ok when it comes to changing spark plugs. disconnecting the battery will erase all the ECU data about ur drving and put it into learning mode.

At each oil change or any electrical work on my j-lib, I disconnect the battery with my installed battery quick disconnect.

I have NO ELECTRICAL GLITCHES, NO COOLING PROBLEM AND NO IDLING ISSUES!

I just changed my plugs today for the $2.99 auto-lite platinum plugs from auto zone. Nothing fancy, just regular single electrode. The engine starts and idles much smoother and quieter now. I think someone else on here recommended those before. I am definitely liking the improvement.
