I have a 2006 XLT 4x4 v6 4.0.. I went to walmart and was going to get some spark plugs then started to look at them all and noticed they all have different thread length.. what ones would i be looking for to use in my truck. and what is the best kind and what would the gap size be? thanks for all the help ..

Go to autozone or some other store and get the motorcraft oem plugs or similar. IMO it's worth the little bit of extra money to get a decent plug. Here is what I bought for mine since they are as good/better than oem and pre-gapped but some people on here aren't a fan of Bosch.

Bosch IR Iridium Fusion Spark Plugs

Be careful with bosh plugs. Have heard stories of them coming out.
Stick with motorcraft or autolite plugs.
