as STL said, dont buy gimmick plugs (such as the E3 diamond fire plugs) they do not work at all. im not trying to bash the company, im just saying that their product does not do what they claim it to.

i would say motorcraft plugs. thats what i will put in mine when it needs them.

There is no such thing. Spark plugs and wires do not make performance and mpg. They either work or they don't. It's not a component that can be enhanced. Anything that says otherwise is fictitious advertising.

Motorcraft or Autolite brand are correct for our trucks.

Motorcraft SP-498 (Fine Wire Platinums) are the plugs going in my truck.

Advance Auto Coupon

Our trucks came with 3 Nickel Plugs and 3 Platinum Plugs out of the factory. If you go to your dealership or call them and ask what plug for our trucks, they will say the Nickel ones. Not everyone likes running nickel ones. So get the SP-498s from Advance Auto online and put in a discount code and pick them up at local store. alot cheaper that way.
