I have not replaced my plugs yet, but I think just about everyone here will tell you to stick with Motorcraft or Autolites

it doesnt matter what plugs you use really as long as its a quality plugs, you dont have to stick to the stock replacement. i use bosch 4's and they run great used them in my old ohv and in my new sohc and never had a problem. the truck runs great. same for the screamin demon coil pack which can be used on models newer than 01. and for plug wires you can pretty much go with anything as long as its a good brand. not some el cheapo set.

Nope. Just put the sparks plugs in, and pop those wires right on! Although, I know that I bought a set of the Accel Superstocks for my F150 a while back, and they didn't come precut, so I had to put them together myself. Just depends on where you get them from, and the availability. Either way, it's a cake job, even if you have to put the wires together, or just pop em' right on. Also, I'm a fan of the Bosch Platinum plugs..That's what I run in my ranger. But that's just me. Lol. Have fun!

Make sure you put some anti seize on the plugs due to the aluminum heads.
