Not difficult at all. Takes maybe an hour or so but just time consuming not hard.
Besides plugs does anything else needed to be changed when replacing them.

Not really.

Just take the plastic half covers off. Remove the two small screws in each coil pack and pull them off. Then use an extension and a deep well socket with the rubber insert to remove the plugs. Two per cylinder.

Be very carefull when tighten them, because if they are over torqued you can ruin the threads, they are very sensitive...15ft/lbs is the max btw.

Update:

I took it to the dealer. I didn't have the time, plus it was snowing/cold when I was home from work that weekend.

This all started when we took the truck to the dealer for an alignment today. The truck is right under 60k and the service writer was telling my fiance that her SRT was do for major maintenance at 60k including........ spark plugs, they wanted $350 to do the plugs (I almost lol'd at him) then a tranny flush and a differential flush. The price for the last 2 items wasn't too bad. But im sure i can do the plugs myself.
Also he told her that the front right rim is bent, so ill be on the lookout for one of those for her 06.
Dealer price for a wheel was 1660.xx. yeah right!
