Are new plug wires required?

I'll be installing a set of New plugs in my 2000 Sahara. Should I get Champion 7034 or Autolite App985's. And should I replace the wires also? I have 124-k on her. I believe the original owner MAY have had them changed, but am not sure.(need to look thru the papers) The wires look to be ok, But I'd like to get some opinons before I get everything tomm. Thanks.

2000's don't have Coil on plug? Guess that started in 01?



If it has wires I'd change them for good measure. If the wires are getting old, many times its not observable from outside. they degrade from inside a lot.

I do not have a reg. coil like the old days. Mine has the three coils? One for every two wires. You know that long black piece with the coils on it over the plugs.

ALSO-I'll be doing another oil change. Should I add the seafoam to it, then take it to the parts store to get whats needed, or just add it while the jeeps in the driveway idleing? The parts store is only a 3 mile round trip. I thought maybe by running it a bit the seafoam would work a bit better. What do ya think?

Just figured it out- I don't have wires. Just the coil strip. That's $$ saved.
