4.7l spark plugs

SO my local autoparts store doesn't have the champions, but they do have the Autolite Copper/Spark Plug Part Number: 5224
which cross refrences to the Champion. Has anyone used these or should I look for something else?

Thanks

I had a hard time finding champs for my 4.7ho too. Autozone did not carry them anymore, Pep boys had 4 in stock and had to special order me the other 4.

Amazon.com.... And no, I wouldn't run Autolite if it were the last brand on earth. It's absolute trash of not run in the car designed for it.

Those will work fine. Also consider ordering on-line if you really want to get the Champions. These folks seem to think there's no problem with Autolites: http://www.f150online.com/forums/v6-...ark-plugs.html

It's all in opinion really. Different plugs run at different temperatures. I have Bosch Platinum in mine currently, but I'm going to switch because they're designed to run the Champions. Champion also makes spark plugs for lawn mowers... The point is, a plug designed for Dodge may run like crap in a Ford, and vice versa.

I run nothing but high grade stuff in my Jeeps, got to treat them like your babies lol. I got E3 in my 98 XJ and Bosch Platinum +4 in my 04 WJ Limited and never had a problem with either, starts up right away and runs smooth.

Unless you have the HO V8 you should be running basic copper plugs.

How does the XJ run with E3s? I've never seen a Jeep even idle right with them, let alone run.

Auto lite is apparently crap, but I ran them for a few years not knowing. With that said, my jeep ran fine with them, never an issue, but they were in rough shape after only 20k miles. I just recently changed to champions because apparently they are the best. Do I feel a difference? No not really, but just peace of mind knowing I'm using what jeep uses from the factory.

And they also make e3's for lawn mowers.....
