You can buy plugs any where from $3.00 to $10.00 each and sometimes even more. I really find no difference, I normally pick name brand plug that is priced in the middle and they work fine for me. Everyone has different taste and guys may post here on the one they like. some come with 1year, 2 year and 5 year warranties. Some are nickel plated, PlasmaCore ect.

Originally your truck came with plain jane resistor type spark plugs. With a conventional electronic ignition system tune ups are recommended every 30 months or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. As others have said, go with a name brand. If you have some miles on the truck you might want to go with a hotter plug than was originally installed. This will prevent premature fouling out if you have a cylinder that's getting a little weak, slightly worn piston rings, or worn valves that are allowing oil to pass into the combustion chamber. Ask an older parts guy about this. Younger guys will have absolutely no idea what you're talking about!! If you do a lot of hauling or heavy duty work with your truck I'd recommend double platinum spark plugs. These will hold up better under frequent load. Iridium or other "high end" plugs are, in my opinion, a waste of money for your truck. These plugs are designed for distributorless ignition systems and you'll get no benefit from them in your truck. I'd also suggest replacing the spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor as well. For a complete tune up. HTH. -Jim
