How to remove engine shroud

Just looking at my '08 JGC 4.7L engine yesterday and was going to pull a couple of plugs to check them and was wondering what is the method to remove the plastic shroud cover from the engine.

Didn't want to break anything, so I thought I'd seek some professional help.......

Thanks.

I didn't think the 4.7 had a shroud...I know the previous ones didn't. Maybe the 08+ does.

Otherwise, I'd imagine you're talking about the airhat/intake resonator. Should be a couple bolts on either side of it going into brackets on the intake manifold and obviously the hose clamps at the inlet and outlet.

If you're talking about the 4.7 V8 cover its two 10mm bolts on each side and them some 5/16's on the throttle body and intake tube. Pull back and up once those are loosened and you'll be good to go.

Nope, on the 2008 4.7 you pull the outer shroud toward you (toward the grille). Itjust pops into a few ball socket fasteners. The airbox is attached to the throttle body with a hose clamp.

The shroud you see is two pieces.

Thank You, That's just the kind of information that I needed.
I just lifted up the front and gently pulled the catches from the rear and it came right off.
The air box was attached as you stated.

I checked one Top plug and it had a nice tan color and was gapped at .044.

Looks like a little wear, but nothing that says I should change them.

Thank You again for your help....this is what makes this Forum great.

If/when you do change them, make sure you use the proper factory spec bosch plugs. I got mine from justforjeeps.com.
