Pulled the plugs in the 97 Ranger. Looked like they had been in there since it was built, with 125k miles on them now, clean as new with a gap that was twice what it was originally. Put the same Ford plugs in, takes 8 for the 4 cylinder and the left side is a pain. The wires are original dated 1997. They still seem to be working fine. Plugs were iridium. Fortunately I still have my pin lock impact MAC extension and the 5/8ths swivel impact socket with the rubber boot that grabs the plug. I couldn;t get my hand within a foot of the number 3 intake side plug, totally installed by luck and feel.

factory plug wires are now 16 years old, when they start messing up, I'll spend the $65 for Ford wires, and replace them again when I am 80 years old, YEAH RIGHT!
