will this be the same concept for my 4.7L? I read that the models up to 2009 have 8 and the 2010 and up models have 16

I need to change mine out, I was planning on changing them out tomorrow. But I'm kinda scared of screwing something up. Is it really easy to screw something up when changing them out??

nah, you dont need to worry about anything. Just make sure you use anti-seize when putting the new plugs in. Other than that, it's straight forward

If you are changing like you are supposed to every 30k no point in wasting time with antiseize. If you want to go ahead though. It is actually easy just a bit of a hassle just make sure you have different length extensions and it is a breeze.
