truck spit a plug

hi, i was wondering if anyone in NJ can recommend a shop to fix a spit plug. i dont really trust random mechanics touching my cars. i've read this is a normal issue which really sucks on ford's part. basically looking for anyone's local experience with the repair as i would rather not have to attempt to fix it myself.... i wont take it to the dealer to have them tell me it needs a new head that is $3000 or whatever. i already called ford customer relations basically told me too bad. even though my truck actually had an extended warranty that just expired in june!

a new plug went in... and new coil and it ran normally. only let it run for a minute though. i'm going to change all the plugs tomorrow and retorque everything. then take it for a ride and see if i got REAL lucky... on the old plug only the last thread and half were damaged. i'm crossing my fingers!

dunno if anyone cares. changed all my plugs. the one that loosened and came out was in way better condition then the others that didnt! wow

anyway. i was able to retq all the plugs without an issue. i may have gotten lucky!

anyone who has a v8/v10 and hasnt changed plugs do it ! and prevent issues down the road. stupid ford and their 100k mile plug changes...
