Your plugs are good for 100,000 miles... Royal Purple is the best oil you can buy!

When I changed my plugs I went with NGK 5306. Great plugs. Changing the plugs on these 5.7 Hemi Rams is a real challenge. The rear plugs are pretty tough to get to. I have an extra deep spark plug socket I use. No no need for a socket extension down in the plug well. A stubby ratchet or a palm ratchet helps too. Also a magnetic pickup tool comes in mighty handy at times.

Royal Purple is good oil.

Do what the manufacturer recommends . Hold on to your receipts also for your proof . Don't forget to document your mileage (maybe on your receipt) that way if something happens your not left holding the bag .

Have fun doing the maintenance! Don't forget, you need 16 plugs for that HEMI.

Royal Purple is good stuff to use.

RP is good oil, but you're paying a premium for the name too, FYI. As for the plugs, if you're hoping to keep warranty without any issues, follow the manual.

Have fun playing in the grease.
