Default Urgent Help Needed

I'm in the process of changing out the plugs in my '04 4.0. The old plugs (Bosch Platinum +2) are quite a bit (like 1/4") shorter that my new plugs (Autolite APP5144). I definiely don't want things smashing into each other on start-up. Can anybody confirm? Everything that I've looked at online says that the 5144s are correct.
Thanks
MikeR

They're in there-the thing that concerns me is that the part that is longer is the part that goes into the head and could potentially hit a piston.

It should be fine. Fire it up you'll know if they hit. Pretty sure thqats the same autolites I'm running in mine right now

My original OEM plugs are 1 1/8" from the seat to the tip of the outer electrode.
