WHAT KIND OF WIRES AND PLUGS SHOULD I GO WITH? I PUT ON BOSCH WIRES AND BOSCH PLATINUM PLUGS ABOUT A YEAR AGO AND IT IS RUNNING REAL ROUGH RIGHT NOW.

if you do a search, there are numerous threads about how the Motorcraft plugs and wires are better than almost ALL aftermarket wires and plugs...

Why ask a stupid question instead of answering a serious one?

Does everyone have to be a smart*** on here. All people are doing is just trying to get some help with stuff and not to be hassled. That is bull****. Just becasue some of us dont know everything does not mean you have to act that way.

Jason, Everyone has an opinion on spark plugs. Mine is a double platinum. Autolite makes them at a reasonable price. The motorcrafts are good also. I've never used Bosch, but I have read a lot of negatives on the +4's from them.

If you want some color on your plug wires, theres a group buy going on here:

It nets out to $38 shipped to your door with a choice of 5 colors.

They DO sell Motocraft parts for the 3.0, and the best place to look for auto parts would be... Your local auto parts store. Now, if you ask us for our opinions, we will give them. We can only give advice, we can't give common sense. If you don't like it, there are plenty of other Ranger boards out there, ad if all else fails I'm sure you could ask a local mechanic. Posting in all caps isn't good form ettiquete. It's annoying and makes you look childish. Judging by your methods of typing and posts, I was merly wondering if maybe you where having a seizure or there was some other reason for the all-caps.
