    Looking to replace the plugs on my 02! Do you need a thin wall spark plugs socket? I know on some Jeeps you need a thin wall socket.

    Nope, you shouldn't, i use just a standard spark plug socket on my 05 3.7L and it works fine. You will need an extension though to reach the plugs

    X 2^ standard plug socket & extension, I use electrical tape from socket to extension to hold it together well.
    I also remove the two nuts holding the coolant reservoir, to move it slightly out of the way, to access the plug by firewall passenger side.
    The Jeep likes the copper core NGK spark plugs, will run great with new plugs.

    IDK Its a Jeep Thing!

    You might want to disconnect the battery after the spark plug RnR to reset the computer and start a new learn cycle with the new plugs installed.
