I Finally Found The Plugs!
 
I know there is a thread with a loooooong debate on which spark plugs to use. I decided to go with NGK but could not find them easily on line. I saw one location where the stock NGK ZFR5C-11's were $3.89 + shipping brought them to over $70 for 16. I contacted my local dodge dealer and at first they said that they replace them with Champions. I asked him to take a look at the box. He came back to the phone a said I was right. The plugs were in a Mopar box with NGK's inside. Mopar part# SPLZFR5C11. Oh...and they wanted $5.39 a plug ($86.24 + tax). I found the below online wholesaler and they have them for $3.05 plus $12 shipping. Brings the grand total to $60.80

No mention of Champion in any of the online searches for that part number.

The reason i ask is that both times I had the plugs changed on my 08 the dealer always left the parts for me to look at and both times they were Champions in a Mopar box. Wish I had kept the box now.

Curious....I did ask him to look in the box and he said NGK. ZFR5C-11 is unique to NGK so it looks like they just added the SPL to make it a Mopar part number.

My Ram dealer sells SPLZFR5C11 for $4.45. They are in a MOPAR box and are NGK plugs.
They are assembled in U.S.A. from Japanese parts.

I bet it's a "stock" photo and not a pic of the actual part.

The plugs got here today. They are in a mopar box with NGK plugs inside. And by the way...they are not copper...they are nickel.
