Suggest spark plug wires for a stock 302 engine

I think it's time for a new set of spark plug wires for my 77 Bronco with a stock 302 engine. Any suggestions on some really good spark plug wires to put in it?

Can rear liftgate be keyed to the ignition key?

Can rear liftgate be keyed to the ignition key? I hate having to carry a separate just for the rear liftgate. Would like one key that will work on doors, glove box and rear liftgate. Thanks!

Engine cutting out while accelerating?

My 77 Bronco cuts out when I accelerate. The Bronco is a stock 302, it doesn't cut out or stutter while idling. Wondering maybe I need new spark plugs, rotor cap or fuel pump? Anybody else experience this before and what was your fix.

One thing I've noticed is that the alternator gauge reads 0 but bounces to maybe 25. The needle bounces real fast and hard to read but more 0 than anything. Don't know if the gauge is inaccurate of defective is this normal with Early Broncos?

How to test if your alternator and voltage regulator is good?

I'm in the process trying to figure out why my battery is drawing power when the Bronco is shut off and draining the battery. I'm trying to do a process of elimination, so I'm wondering how I would go about finding if my alternator or voltage regulator is any good. Any way of testing these things? T...

Battery keeps draining in just a few hours?

I recently went out to start my '77 Bronco and it was grave yard dead. Jump started the Bronco, went to church, got out of church in a couple hours and it was dead.
