On the 4.0 you NEED the double plats - or half of the plugs go south
while the other half is still good. If you are too CHEAP to use the
specified plug, change them every year.
On my 3.0 I used standard non-plats and changed them every 50,000km. I
figured it was better that way than letting the plats sieze in, then
pull the motor to replace the plugs.
