    Please read the links, I don't think anyone with a 4.0L V6 is running the iridium plugs (SK20HR-11) only the 2.7L 4cyl engines are running those. I use the K20HR-U11 (standard plug). I just don't change them at the interval the owner's manual calls for

    Yeah, not trying to debate which is best, just whether they will be Okay to run in my V6. I'll probably go back to the OEM next time I change them.

    The same shit everyone else has.
    You'll be satisfied with it. Ive been using it for years and love the stuff.

    Just keep up with cleaning/spray waxing the truck and the Optiseal will last 4-6 months. I polish/wax my truck 2-3 times a year. The rest of the time, I can just get away with spray wax and/or quick detailer in between.

    Another little trick is to use Optiseal as a drying agent. After washing your truck, spray a pump or 2 on each panel while its still wet then dry it with a microfiber. Youll be blown away with how much it brings the shine back without having to do anything else to the paint

    Today. Unpacked from this weekend camping/fishing trip.

    I also got a raise at work today. Gonna start sinking all the extra cash from the raise into my truck payments starting with the next payment so I can just get the last little bit paid off. It'll be paid off at the beginning of August if I did my math right.

    Changed the rear brakes and changed the spark plugs. The old plugs were all between .062 to .064.

    Snapped off my antenna so I rebuilt it with a Firestick FSII. I've got a multiplexor stashed under the center console so the antenna will receive AM/FM as well as CB. Haven't decided which CB yet (Uniden CMX760 Bearcat or the Cobra C 75 WX ST or something else entirely).

    You guys like my jig?

    First side, all bends completed. Still need to do the other and do some drilling and welding. Not bad for eyeballing it, lines up nice on the truck.

    Did a hasty oil change and made a rookie mistake. Forgot to pull the drain plug on my catch can. Took 3x longer than it should have because of the mess I had to clean up. Installed a fumoto valve during the change so that's the first and last time that happened.

    I'll be making some bed stiffeners too. Such an easy project that I can't justify $120+ for them.

    Okay, I slept on it and for the $3 price ea of the right spark plugS I'm going to change them back to the OEM K20HRU11.

    I don't want to deal with my engine throwing codes or burning out coils etc etc.

    I appreciate your input and the truck was running great on those plugs to begin with.

    I'm hoping that Autozone will own this mistake and refund me the $$$ for the (SK20HR11) 4cyl plugs. If not, I will give them to anyone that needs them.

    Thanx for the tips..very impressed with its performance and soooo ez to use...I used to wax more often (retired with nothing better to do when not out with the rig) but looking forward to less waxing , the drying agent trick sounds like a great idea.
