I've done them on my truck, it's not too bad. If you get stuck or need a hand let me know, I'm not too far away from you.

I'm not sure about an obs, but on a superduty the hardest part imo is getting the passenger valve cover off. The bolts near the heater box are hard to get at.
I don't think I could put a number on how difficult it is, but i'd say it's a little harder than changing spark plug, Only because your under the valve covers.

Here's where they are located:

Got the new plugs in and it runs great! Did it in about 3.5 hours, took my time and everything went well, only broke 1 bolt and that was the one holding the old relay on so no bigge just drilled it out and new on is installed. I agree with Harry, the hardest is the back bolt on the passenger valve cover but you can actually reach up from under neath and break it loose that way. But other than the broken bolt everything went well.

Glad it went well! I didn't hear from you on sat, so I figured you didn't have problems

Yep everything went good but I had you in my phone in case something came up! I got the stancor relay to put in place of the old one and im going to see if i can make a new bracket for the relay itself so i can put that cover back on the top of the motor. But if not then the cover will just stay off.
