    I changed the plugs and wires on my 01 DC today and found that they had never been done. The truck has 160k on the clock but has more miles due to the 33's..

    I'm pretty surprised that the former owners hadn't done basic maintainance and am curious how many miles any of you guys have seen on stock plugs.

    I'm the third owner of my truck, and I swapped them at 242k miles. The 2nd owner (a friend) never changed them, and he bought the truck at 80k miles.

    They were HORRRRRRRIBLE. I'm very surprised the truck still ran lol.

    I replace mine around 40K plugs look good but the gap was off. Need to get the best MPG that I can with the price of gas going through the roof

    The truck was running like shit so I decided to change them and it was a great idea. I used Denso Iradium plugs and the difference is crazy. I can actually feel the variable valve timing change now. Hopefully I will see a little bit better gas milage now...
