Spark Plugs Wires & Spark Plugs

I have a 99 Ranger XLT 4.0 OHV. Has 111miles on it, no spark plug records. Was thinking of replacing them for good measure.

Looking for your input! Should I go motocraft or other??? Is there a better brand?

I'm a Ford guy, so Ford parts. Though your plugs should last to the 150k mark, wires too. Unless you've had oil/anti freeze burning, something to foul the plugs. Good mileage for a 99.

Preference in order...
Ford: Motorcraft, Autolite.
Chev: AC/Delco, Champion
Dodge: don't know don't care don't like.. LOL

Motorcraft. Everyone says autolites are the same, but i never had any luck with them. They suck.

Stick with factory Motorcraft plugs. Motorcraft SP500 are platinum and should last for another 100,000 miles.
