Default Here are pictures of spark plug at 31,000 miles

Got the 30,000 mile tune up done today. Truck actaully has 31,000 miles. All 16 spark plugs replaced. Here are some pictures of their condition. Note: I do not do any towing and my driving habbits are moderate...meaning I'm in the throttle quite heavy at times but not really alot.

Looks like dodge at least put in some decent NGK-R plugs though.

The 30,000 mile tune up consists of: spark plug change, trans fluid, dif fluid, coolant and throttle body cleaning (think that's it). I had them do the plugs and clean throttle body. Everything else I had done already.

Wow, those electrodes on your plugs look pretty rounded bud. Thanks for sharing and I would have to say its a good idea to replace them when recommended, like you did.
