Time for a upgrade

Your plugs are good for 100,000 miles... Royal Purple is the best oil you can buy!

When I changed my plugs I went with NGK 5306. Great plugs. Changing the plugs on these 5.7 Hemi Rams is a real challenge. The rear plugs are pretty tough to get to. I have an extra deep spark plug socket I use. No no need for a socket extension down in the plug well. A stubby ratchet or a palm ratchet helps too. Also a magnetic pickup tool comes in mighty handy at times.

Royal Purple is good oil.

Yeah, on my 08 says to change the spark plugs at 30k too...but not to change the differential fluid until 36k...

Do what the manufacturer recommends . Hold on to your receipts also for your proof . Don't forget to document your mileage (maybe on your receipt) that way if something happens your not left holding the bag .

Have fun doing the maintenance! Don't forget, you need 16 plugs for that HEMI.

Royal Purple is good stuff to use.

RP is good oil, but you're paying a premium for the name too, FYI. As for the plugs, if you're hoping to keep warranty without any issues, follow the manual.

Have fun playing in the grease.
