The dealerships will always say to change them sooner than you need to

I have heard that 60,000 miles is what is recommended

 

here is some info that I found

 

 

Instructions
    • 1

      Park the vehicle and open the hood. Locate the spark-plug wires. The spark plugs are located underneath the spark-plug wires.

    • 2

      Remove one spark plug wire at a time by grasping the end and pulling the wire toward you.

    • 3

      Remove the old spark plug with a ratchet and spark-plug wrench. You must turn the wrench in a counterclockwise direction to loosen the plug.

    • 4

      Install the replacement spark plug into the engine in a clockwise fashion, by hand. Tighten the spark plug with a ratchet and spark-plug wrench.

    • 5

      Attach the spark-plug wire onto the newly installed spark plug by pushing the wire onto the top of the plug. Confirm the spark-plug wire is firmly onto the plug before moving to the next spark plug.

    • 6

      Continue with the remaining spark plugs until all have been replaced.

    • 7

      Lower the hood of your F150.

I will be replacing mine around 60,000. I follow the 'severe service' maintenance schedule, mostly do to the towing I do in the summer. That leaves me another 35,000 miles to go and about another 2 years.
