    I changed four of the plugs on my '02 B1500 3.9-liter. Which brings me to my plug-related question which seems to fit here: What do you folks use for getting at those in the front. They're easy to see, but I couldn't see a way to get my socket extension in there - between the cyl head and the firewall opening. I'm sure it's just a matter of getting the ideal fitting between the socket and the ratchet handle. (Put van on jack stands and reach from underneath?)

    Does your plug socket have a 'hex end' to break a plug loose with an open-end wrench? A combination of 'wobble' extensions might get you past the interference?
    Many 'hard to get at' spark plugs take invention and creativity.
