MSD wires are good stuff. I don't think you need anything fancier than a good platinum or iridium plug. NGK makes a good one for sure as do others.

For the injectors, here's a simple google search list that may be helpful:

http://www.google.com/products?q=dodge+ram+5.9+gas+engine+fuel+injectors &oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=coanTKDKBou8sQPh2KnWDA&sa=X&oi=product_result _group&ct=title&resnum=3&ved=0CDoQrQQwAg

There are several MOPAR authorized parts sellers on eBay. I've gotten parts from one seller there, airparkcjd, and they are great to deal with and have some very competitive pricing.

Good luck with the work!

Platinum or iridium spark plugs? I thought copper core plugs were the way to go with our trucks, I heard they give the best performance over the more expensive plugs?

Why are you replacing the injectors ? Problems ? Basic tuneup stuff is fine . Yes MSD makes some good stuff . I'd go with the standard ole copper core plug . You'll be good there .

Thanks maddog I'll look into that. I don't know too much about the copper spark plugs I was just told that platinum or iridium is the best but if you guys say copper is the way to go I'll take your word for it. And yes I need new injectors because of a previous problem that was supposed to have been fixed but aparently it wasn't and I got cheated by the mechanic so now I'm gunna fix it myself. It was a cylinder 2 miss fire, hopefully a basic tune up will fix it but if not then I'm gunna try new injectors.
