What kind of plug wires to get?

I was looking at putting some new plug wire in and I was wondering what were some good ones? And also what kind of plugs would you recommend? I have a 1999 ranger 4x4 4.0 with close to 90,000 miles on it.

Thanks,

Ramsey

Crane FireWire Spark Plug Wires

Efficient, powerful spark plug wires.
With a rating of 25 ohms per foot, Crane's FireWire spark plug wires are a whopping 37 percent more efficient than the nearest competitor. These premium-grade, double-layer, silicone-insulated wires offer unsurpassed resistance to heat and damaging fluids, and enhanced protection against high-voltage breakdown. They are also ideal for street use, as their Kevlar-reinforced "reactive core" design filters out RFI and EMI noise that affects sound systems.

you can get them from Summit
heres the website

The factory Motorcraft wires are actually quite good and Summit has them for $40 for a 4.0L OHV. ACF-WR5791

With a stock ignition system, you will see no noticeable gain from using expensive plugs and wires. Better off to stick with what is reliable....Motorcraft works well. Don't waste money on quad Split-Fires and $100 plug wires.
