    I got a set of plugs for my taco at the toy garage. Denso is what they said to use and that is what is in it. So tonight, I putting plugs in. Right side easy. Left not so easy, but all done in hour and some. Next time will go better.

    Here is what I found, Right head has Denso and the Left head has NGK.

    Denso K20HR-U11 NGK R LFR6C 11

    The NGK are worn more but everything else looks the same. They must have had a run of heads with NGK at one time. Denso are in it now!

    All spark plugs this way are stock from the factory this way!

    How many miles are on your truck?

    Yep, that's the way most 4.0 liters come stock, mine did. It's a marketing thing.

    Thanks,

    Damn 24k in a year and a half! Wow.:)
    That makes me feel better with my little 6.5k a year. :D Though I bought my rig used with 65k in 2011, and now I'm at 78k;)

    Thanks,

    Brett
