heh yea, they can be fun to change all 8, I've got it down to about an hour for the entire job, but then again I've also put 210,000 miles on my truck since I've owned it so you can go tend to go through a few sets of plugs in that time...

Changing the spark plugs on a ranger can be a pain. The exhaust manifold side is easy, but the intake manifold side is a pain.

Just did mine at 105K.

The 4.0 is definitely no fun either.

Look at the bright side, it'll be another 117K before you have to do that again, right?
