Ohh, if you want to come to ny I'll do it for $250! , As some others have said it's an easy job, just time consuming. Good luck with what you do.

Theyre all the same plugs. Definitely stay with the OEM copper plugs. There's something with the resistance of other plugs that will cause the CEL to come on. I did mine without removing the wheels or anything else. Just make sure you look at all the plugs/locations first, organize your thoughts and come up with a plan of how your going to change them and what tools you'll need, get a beer, and go to it. Its ridiculously easy but its a pain because there are so many of them. Trust me, dont waste your money on aftermarket plugs. The stock ones lasted 100K miles without an issue, right? So just put the same ones in and they will last you another 100K miles.

Let me know if you need any help, the back plugs are really a big PITA but with patience it can be done.

Good luck!

I always recommend NGK 5306's (4306's in my case). I've tried alot of different ones, bosch platinums, champion and ngk iridiums....have over 240k miles on the truck now and ngk's are all she'll get.

Look at the ROCK auto site for good prices
the OEM Champion plugs are less then $2 each, if i remember right
the NGK plugs are not much more

Orieillys auto parts carries the OEM plugs, though not by the number that is in your manual, but their number does cross reference to the correct number

the real fancy plugs can melt your coil paks

I posted the correct numbers in another post

Those will work very well with your truck. Theyre copper core so you will be fine! Let us know how the tune up goes. While youre doing the plugs you might as well clean the TB, top off all fluids, check wires, etc.
