So i got a nice surprise yesterday :)

I went out and was going to change my plugs and wires because i assumed the guy who sold me the truck hadnt changed them in a while and i didnt bother to check first. So i went out and bought some of the Autolite Double Platinum plugs and some BWD Racing wires. I got home and popped the hood and took out one of the plugs, and low and behold, the plugs were fresh! They were Motorcraft Double Platinum plugs and Motorcraft 8mm wires, all new and fresh! so im just happy that i saved myself 40+ bucks on my plugs and wires, now i just have to work on getting my lights on my bumper :-P

LUCKY! On my 2000 4.0 with 175k miles it started not wanting to fire over when I tried to start it. Bought plugs and wires.. try 175k on original plugs! I wasn't so lucky. I had bought the truck maybe a month before.
