Well my clutch is pretty much fried. What kind of clutch should I get and what else should I need? Any special tools need to in stall. Not looking to spend more than whats necessary.

This is for my 4 popper and a 5speed.

A lot of good info in this post: http://www.pirate4x4.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=6&t=008424

Other things you will need

A great big guy named BoBo with a lot of brawn and no brains to take the tranny in and out, or a tranny jack.

Something to remove the pilot bearing.

Air tools if you have them!

1/2 inch drive socket set and extensions

Someplace the resurfaces flywheels, Automotive Machine Shop. This is a must.

I do not think they weight 400 but that's not the problem, the problem is they are awkward. In addition, you have to lay on your back and hold it up while you try and line up the pilot shaft with the clutch. You do not want to put any weight on the clutch until the pilot shaft is in the pilot bearing. One of the things I did was to get some long bolts that will screw into the engine block where the bell housing bolts to. I cut the heads off the bolts, cut a slot in the end for a screwdriver to take them out after the tranny is in and seated all the way to the block. Put a few of the regular bolts in and then UN-screwed the locating studs. This makes it a lot easier for me, because I am not the Bubba type more like the Papa Smurf type.

I was just moving my spare 5 speed this morning. I'd say it weighs around 250lbs with the transfer case attached.

if your doin' it by your self, pull the t'case off, that'll shed about 80lbs off it.

i found a tranny jack adapter for my large 3 ton floor jack at NAPA for under $80.00. It was worth every penny! i did mine by my self, and along w/ the crawler installed it would have been way to cumbersome to do via the benchpress method (i can see it now, "man kilt by crawler, details a 10") <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
