    goto www.dialaclutch.com and get a luk clutch kit for your truck.
    You don't want to play guessing games with the amount of labor that goes into the job. Luk is an OEM manufacture and uses all new parts.
    Alot of those parts stores only sell reman clutches. I don't think I'd trust thier new clutches either, if they offer them.
    I've done many many clutch jobs, at this point I would not even think about a reman clutch (about 75% blow up rate in 1st 2000mi), and I'd be leary of generic new clutches (abouit 30% blow up rate in 1st 10000mi). So now I only use name brand, actually I only use LUK, and I've never had one come back yet.

    I have done quite a few clutches myself and haven't had a problem with any of the ones I've gotten from Auto Zone or NAPA (since they get their clutches from the same supplier). I like the fact that if you get a clutch from AZ you get a lifetime warranty... So even if you do burn it up or blow it up, the next one is free. Just my opinion though but I don't drag race my full size so maybe I'm not abusing my clutch enough to need anything better. :rolleyes:
