Not sure plugs ever made much difference except how they hold up over time on cars, never bought into the deal. What I do know, is that my 05 Ram Quad 4.7 was a good running truck, it lacks bottom end guts, and with 35 inch tires, you are likely below the engines power band, unless you changed the gears to above 3.91s.
