what spark plugs and wires to go with?

haven't noticed any problems, but there are 50k miles on my plugs and wires now so probably wouldnt hurt to replace all that. just curious which plugs are recommended for the 4.0 and what they need to be gapped at. thaaaanks!

i disagree, those run too cold, maybe for a supercharged application.

run the stock motorcraft or autolite plugs. Then you can run whatever plug wires you want to pay for.
