    aight my truck is gettin done... new body pannels soon... paint then put bushwackers and snorkel back on.. put interrior in...rollbar mounted and new lights.... all that has to be done.. but the other day I fired her up and pushed the clutch in... well it went to the floor and stayed there.. the adjusting rod fell off the clutch fork....

    should I go hydraulic clutch to avoid this? i dont wanna be on the road at a light and this happen when it is in gear.. also dont want it to happen off road....

    any suggestions on if I should and what brand and parts to buy greatly appreciated...

    factory stuff and I'd definetally say go Hydro. I am not the biggest Hydro clutch fan but for offroading there is no denying the superiority in what we do.

    I don't miss my mech clutch a bit.

    Even when it worked right it had more pedal effort and thus I had less control.

    HYDRO ROCKS!!

    Wish I'd done that with steering.

    Just got my hydraulic clutch cylinder mounted on my 69's firewall. This setup came from a 1989 Chevy 1 ton. I had to make the shim to get the angle correct, but if you go with a hydraulic clutch this probably wouldn't be an issue with your firewall.
