    i will only run champion in my jeep... i have tried everything else and had alot of wasted money and poor economy, and i only run delco in my GM's for the same reason.... and anything foren i run NGK.... although my parts guy told me ngk now makes the delco plugs which is why they are suddenly more then ngk's for gm....

    Wow, I think I touched a nerve there. FWIW, I have personally used E3s (in a Jeep 4.0L) and was disappointed. I have used Splitfires (also in a Jeep 4.0L) and was disappointed.
    No Nerve touched so try not to flatter yourself...

    Everyone has different setups and If your experienced enough you know not everything works for all Jeeps and I have no issue with anyone that has actual first hand experience or even has a wild opinion without knowing first hand what they are talking about...

    I can respect the fact they did not work for you, Just don't tell me what works or does not work for me and my Setup...

    It is idiotic remarks that Stop those of Us that contribute Technical Information from wanting to continue doing so...

    Put new plugs in last year after the rebuild.....went to the dealer for plugs as its right around the corner. They gave me a box of Mopar/Champion Copper Plus. There are a bunch of numbers on the box, if you actually need them let me know.

    Same here, have always run Platinum's and now the E3 plugs. Everything else burns up or makes it run like crap. I stopped using Champions, Delcos and NGK's for that reason 10 years ago.
    On top of that with my hot rebuild I can't use cheap plugs now anyway. I find it weird that the same motors have completely opposite "tastes".

    Well ran the e3s in the LJ for about 100k or less... thought the motor was going to come apart it was knocking and missfireing so bad. Pulled em out and they were nicely fouled. Put in champion coppers and it is now nice and smooth.

    I understand the distributorless (from 2001-2006 TJs) 4.0Ls are like that - very sensitive to plugs and they don't like it when you get creative with replacements.

    For future reference the Champion 7034s are double platinum and produce a spark the way the engine likes them to. The copper ones work too, but the 7034s are longer lasting. I also understand single platinums play all kinds of havoc with that ignition system too.

    ^^ I didn't bother with the double platinums as if the coppers are good for 50-60k I'm happy to replace em once a year as that's my usual mileage.
