I got good performance out of irridum plugs out of my v10 for about 40k now with some pretty substantial hauling. I havent run another set to compare.

Oil .. Im running 10w30 Mobile 1 because it was on sale for less than valvoline that day and I run lighter oil in the winter here. Yes on 7 quarts

Your running the AC DELCO Plugs? They are some of the more expensive plugs. But Dodge also isn't as fussy about plugs as the newer GMs.
I ran Mobil 1 in a new GM I had at one time. The thing about synthetic oils is they like to find any weak spot to leak out of. My opinion is if the truck hasn't run it from new putting it in a high mileage engine isn't the best idea. I have run dino & synthetic & to be honest & have never seen the value of synthetic in an engine. Gear boxes different story. In fact most new vehicles come from the factory with it in rear ends. My 99 has it.
Anyway just my two cents
