    Most people have recommended to me the stock dual electrode plugs.

    You obviously already got your answer, but just to throw in my $0.02. A couple of months ago I replaced my plugs with NGK Iridium - seemed to make sense to get a better, longer lasting plug. I didn't notice anything from a performance standpoint, but my gas mileage went down about 2 mpg. Coincidentally I took them out yesterday and replaced them with the OEM Denso dual ground plugs.

    Can't beat it when the best plug for your truck is cheap!
