SOURCE: Spark Plug Replacement
The spark plugs are located on top of the engine, underneath a square on top of the valve cover area. Look at this photo:
You have to remove the two screws, and you'll find the individual coil and spark plugs under that.
Unfortunately, the rear plugs are very hard to get to. You MAY have to have the dealer do the rears- as they may have to take out an engine mounting bolt and tilt the engine forward to get to the rear plugs.
Not an easy job. My dealer charges $260 to replace the plugs.

To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:
Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.
At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.
Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.
Remove spark plug.
Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.
tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).
repeat this process with all other sparks.
be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.
