Default 11 mpg!

Just bought my 99, 1500, 5.9 and I already replaced the crank seal and rear main seal, the truck runs great but the mileage is horrible. I plan on doing a tune up but when I search for a tune kit (ie: plugs, wires, cap and rotor) there are so many options for how hot the plugs burn or what not.... I'm trying not to go with OEM on this and I'm not looking for a entire ignition system, but if anyone might know how hot of a plug and coil a 5.9 can run that would be great or even just a good tune kit. Thanks for your time everyone.
