This site is based in America, but TRS is not a Democracy or a Republic. In some posts you are acting argumentative and being a general ______. I warned you once, this is your second. You won't get a third. In other posts you are asking and responding responsibly, please keep that up.

All the threads because I thought I should separate everything into more specific categories. Should I have combined everything and posted in the general tech forum?
That's pretty standard for platinum plugs. The OEM ones are mileage based as well but I can't remember what that is. It took me until last fall to hit that mileage with my 2011. Not a horribly short time period but it depends on what kind of mileage you expect to be driving your truck. Whatever you decide to go with, I strongly recommend you look up recommendations on how to change the plugs. Not getting at them at the right angle can make the job miserable. On the passenger side, I would highly recommend you go through the wheel well and pull the splash shield to do it. Coming in from the top is doable but a completely miserable experience with the back plug.

Yea! I’ve done the back passenger plug through the wheel well.
