100% correct. Not necessary to spend big bucks on plugs. NGK 5306s will do the trick just fine.

i put the bosch platinum + 4 , $9 per plug and not really any noticeable difference, the priginal plugs were in great shape when i took them out at 50k miles, dodge suggest to change them every 40k and the plug wires at 60k. I also put in a set of msd 8.5 wires.

i think that next time i will get the copper ones just as good. Also the stock plugs are champion just as good also and priced right.

The only difference is if you go drag racing otherwise K.I.S.S.

you'll want to change the platinums out pretty soon, our hemi's don't like them. After awhile you may throw some odd codes because of this. NGK 5306's (not iridiums) are best for stock and light modded trucks, 4306's for the cammed ones...

I have 78k on my truck and still have the stock plugs in it. Is this going to damage anything?
