    I have a RAM and have been very happy w/ it. I think I got it from Summitt for about 120 bucks or so.

    I like the "long style" or the "Borg&Beck" three finger style pressure plates over the diaphram types. It has been my experience that a diaphram type PP will let mud solidify when hot and could cause the bellvell spring to freeze up in one spot ( I am not talking about splash mud - I am talking about headlight deep mud/water ) .
    As far as disc's go I like the ceramic puck kind but they can be real grabby when a little slip is needed.
    I have also used a Dual disc set up from McLoed for years and was REAL happy with it behind a roller BBC and a heavy Crew Cab Dually with 38"s ( abused it EVERY time it went out and it never failed me ) .
    Anyway , my suggestion is use a three finger type PP and not a diaphram style in a mud running application .
