Changed Spark Plugs

Took a hour this morning and changed the plugs. Went with Autolite APP 985. Much better idle for sure. The old ones looks like they have been there a while. One gap was almost .045!

Here are the old ones:

Taped up the rear window on my soft top. It was 29 degrees here in South Carolina yesterday and of all days I needed to haul a step ladder in the Jeep. I unzipped it and bam it cracked all the way across then top to bottom. I think it was OEM. I have a new trektop so the first hot day I'll swap it out.

Fixed the vacuum lines for the heat now I have heat coming out the main vents and not just the defroster and I also installed a new blower resistor and now I have all the fan speeds. I should have done it 2 weeks ago before the cold weather

Was it cracked/broke? Mine is, and it's too damn cold here for the last 7 days to mess with it. What did you use if yours was broke? I'm going to try superglue.

Mine was broke in 2 pieces. I just super glued it back together and it's been 6-8 months with no issues.

Mine was cracked in one of the corners, I unhooked it from the boot and super glued it together.

Today I installed an OME 2.5 kit, a banks exhaust and a new procomp bumper. Took all of 6 hours due to crappy tools. The OME kit came with the wrong hardware for the TCase drop and the procomp bumper came with inferior bolts.

It all worked out with no dramas and rides beautifully.
