I'm probably going to pick this up in the next couple weeks. Heck, why not.

FYI for the SOHC guys.....I found it easiest to swap plugs on the passenger side: Jack truck up, pull wheel, pull inner fender, and make sure you have a universal on your rachet. I believe I used both a 3/8 rachet and a 1/4 rachet. Good luck.

Oddly enough I will need to follow both of these techniques if I do this mod.

i would think sitting on the motor would be easier without the body lift cause you dont have to take out the inner fender...

The SOHC is a b* to change plugs on the pass side!

You have an OHV, right? I'm sure it's 10x easier.

How do you think the Screamin Demon coil pack compares to the one that Accel makes?

i would prefer the Screamin' Demon.........since non of the Ranger stores that are represented by members here sell them......only the Screamin' Demon......the Accel pack i probably more expensive.....Accel stuff is usually a little high.....

BTW......i updated the 1st post with another MPG update....
