spark plugs

What are the some of the better pre-gapped spark plugs for our truck?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

All should be checked for Gap. Though they say they are "Pre gapped", very few are actually set to what they should be.

Every discussion I have seen about this always comes back to "Use the stock Densos," but I see you have an SC and don't know if that is a factor.

If you have your owner's manual, it is on page 284 in the specs section.

EDIT: again, I have no clue if the SC is a factor, and it does not say anything in the manual about that. I doubt it matters, but you should check.

If you're boosted you'll need different plugs than what's outline in the owner's manual. I'm sure someone in the know will chime in on this for you.

I run the Iridium NGK's and love them. Can't go wrong with them IMO.
