Default Spark plugs for 99 dodge dakota V8 5.2

Hi, I'm the first time in here.

My brother's 99 dakota V8 gasis, which is76k on it, needed to replace spark plugs with a wire set.

Which brandsare good for her? ACdelco, NGK, Bosch, or Champion?

Also awire set?

It has Champion with a factory wire set now.

Hedosn't want to buy cheaper one. Heloves his truck.

Any suggestion for him?

Thanks

As Big_Green said, a lot of people have good luck with Autolites. NGK V-power's are supposed to be good too. And people do stick with the good old stock Champions with no problems.
Just don't use the Bosch multi-tip plugs, people have reported problems using those.

As for wiresets, mostly anything aftermarket should be good. Just make sure the cablesa good sizeand insulated well. (Oh, and route them properly, there's a TSB about incorrecly routed wires causing problems)

you'll like them. i put ngk vpowers in my 3.9 and the truck ran quite a bit better. results on the 5.2 should be the same, same design. actually same engine with 2 less cyl's.
