First off, 99 XJ, 4.0, AW4, 4x4, just looking to do a tune up. I'm not looking to start another discussion on spark plugs, I'm set in that category. I just cant decide which.....so, I'm asking for your votes. All of them end up around $70 after tax and/or shipping.

Will not be using the plugs in the kit, will be purchasing Champion 438 plugs @ local NAPA.

P.S. - The blue matches my XJ = HP

My only concern is that the terminals on the cap don't appear to be brass or copper....? I dunno, it's OEM so it must be quality. Again, I would pair this with Champion 438's from local NAPA.

It looks like the NAPA cart cleared out, but it consisted of:
Belden 700444 wires
Echlin MO30 cap
Echlin MO31 rotor
Champion 438 plugs

Summit cart is empty also, i.e., it is showing "my" cart. I've had one of the Summit kits on my '93 for several years. I figure for most practical purposes the quality is similar on these provided the cap has the brass contacts, so why not dress up the bay with the blue wires and cap!

Oops, my bad. Here is the kit:

Again, I would pair it with the Champion 438 plugs, if you didn't catch on to that yet. I agree, quality looks comparable, and would dress up the engine bay a bit.

Accel super tune kit, is relatively inexp. comes with everything including plugs. The cost of the kit costs little more than what the accel 8000series (which come with) wires. I got mine from q-tec. Jegs and summit have them. I think vatozone may as well.

I have had good luck with Napa plug wires on all my vehicles(and friends who I do work for). Especially on the XJ, I mean it's not a performance issue so much as just quality.

I did the Summit kit a couple of years ago, with the champion plugs and like it real well. Good quality wires, IMO.

Yeah, I'm not looking for any performance gains, it's just a new to me xj and I have no idea how old the stuff is that's on there now. If the mpg's increase a bit I wouldn't complain though.

Im really back and forth between the accel kit and the summit kit. But then I think about the OEM kit and I try to reason why I should do anything other than what it was designed to run with.
