Changed out my spark plugs today...

Looks like they were a little over due. My Jeep initially started a little rough after the plugs. Overall the plugs were a little worn (i.e. rounded electrodes, etc.), but in decent shape. Not sure how long they were in there, but looks like a long time. It took much less time than I anticipated, after reading the horror stories of plug #8... Hopefully new plugs can improve my gas mileage a little as well.

Here are the measurements of each plug in the picture below:
1 - 0.051
2 - 0.054
3 - 0.051
4 - 0.052
5 - 0.056
6 - 0.053
7 - 0.052
8 - 0.053

No 8 isn't too bad as long as you have the right combination of extensions and a couple of brews down to take the edge off
