I know autozone sells motorcraft as well. They have their cheap brand or two, the Motorcraft's, and the Bosch's. I may have to invest in this. I have heard before that the factory coil is a little weak, especially with some miles on it. (This is supposed to contribute to the pinging some people get a bit)

when i replaced the coil pack i also replaced the brand new plugs i had in the truck....the combo of both helped. I had the stock coil pack tested and it wasn't putting out the proper voltage in one of the banks causing that plug to foul out.....that is what caused the jerking problem.....

so in shorter terms, yes it solved it.....i recommend changing out the plugs also...

Good to know. I was going to run the autolite Platinums spark plugs (Running them now and have had them in for 30,000 miles and they look good. I do get one little jerk now and then...........? Hoping that this is it), with what would you run for wires??? Autolite or motorcraft?

I thought it was the jerk driving the truck that was the problem?

Sorry, had to do it.

ooo yea the coil pack is super easy.....4 small bolts hold it down (use a 1/4" drive socket and ratchet to get out) and then it is a matter of unpluging a wireing harness & putting it in the new coil pack, and finally making sure you get the plug wires back in the correct spot....you can do the swap in 15 minutes or less...

I saw you take your inner fender out?????? That better access???? I mean im fine doing mine with out taking nothing apart. Granted i have the 3" body lift, so that gap between the frame and inner fender well is perfect to get the plugs in and out.

This will be one of my next mods. Plugs need changing soon anyway and I need something to do over the winter to fight off the wintertime blues. If the zone sells the motorcraft I'll get them and my wires(autolite) are only a few months old so I'll just keep them. Thanks for being the guinea pig on this Mr. Jones. Since we have the same year and motor I should see similar results or better since I have much smaller tires to turn.
