I have to do my 60k service on my 99, 4.0, 3 speed auto tj. Any suggestions on some quality replacement or upgrade parts I should throw in.

When I look to upgrade basic tune up stuff I look for all brass cap and rotor. Go with new plug wires with as little resistance as possible. Both my TJ's had the distributorless ignitions so Im talking from experience with my older vehicles.

As far as plugs I like the Champion Truck Plugs but for the most part most any brand name should be fine. I have run Bosch Platinums in both my TJ's without any problem, but I have heard numerous horror stories about them creating all sorts of strange mis firing in Jeeps, so maybe avoid them. Also stay away from the other hyped plugs like Splitfire. There is no substantiated proof that they do anything more for the added cost of them.

Probabaly time for a new serpintine belt. This dosent have to be from DC. Any good parts store should have Gates or equivelent. O2 sensers may need replacement.

Have you checked the diagnostic codes? This may give you a heads up on anything that need replacement or have the dealer plug it in and see what they say. Generally age/mileage items that can go bad are fuel and exhaust sensers.

Real Jeeps dont wear Bra's
