Spark Plug changing

I need to get my spark plugs changed. I looked and I see where they are, but there are a ton of other things over, around, and needing to be moved first. Can an "average" person change them without too much difficulty? Or, is it really as difficult as it looks like it might be.
Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Pretty easy i just changed mine a month or so ago, just get you an extension on ur ratchet your gunna use and you can get around all that stuff no need in taking anything off besides ur cold air intake so u can get the back 2 plugs, my coil packs took a 7mm socket to get them off, good luck!

Use Motorcraft plugs and put some anti-seize on the plug threads so you can get them out easily in the future. I use dielectric grease on my COP boots to keep the connection to the plugs good. Also, make sure your COP covers on your valve covers seal good so no moisture gets to them.

As long as you dont have the new 9/16 plugs you should be good..I think they started them in 05..Also dont remove them hott,,you can pull the threads out,,I suggest doing the boot kits for your coils too..They dont cost much..If you do the boot kits,,look at each coil and theres a little blade when the resister spring hooks on,,they get green corrsion on that blade,,you can scrape it off a little before you install the new boot

Be careful with the back passenger side plug. When I was changing mine on my 01 I tried to push the heater hose out of the way a little to gain access and broke the intake!! Was a day before I went on a beach vacation so I spent part of it ordering parts. They tend to weaken over time I guess. Use a universal socket if possible.
