Default coil and plug wires

I put the screamin demon coil and live wires on the 05 with the 4.0 today. My hands look like I stuck them into a starving vulture cage and thats not even putting the plugs in. It actually got too dark to change plugs but I will get to them on the next decent day. The truck actually starts quicker and idles much smoother now so I can't wait to put the new plugs in.

I did a write up on new plugs and wires a few weeks back. As part of the necessary tools I added box of band aids and Neosporin, LOL. I know your pain.

corrrect me if i am wrong but that calls for a larger plug gap i believe. I have had my eye on that coil but I just had to replace both bank 02s so it cut in my budget this month LOL JBA also makes plug wires that are 9mm for all the rangers there cheaper than the live wires

With the coil, you will open the gaps to .065. it got too dark to put the plugs in but as soon as the weather lightens up I will get that done.

Well, I put the plugs in today. alot easier than changing plug wires. Anyhow, the plugs on the drivers side were AGSF 24 PM, the passenger side was AGSF 24 PGM-----go figure.
