depends on your rigs set up and your driving style.

what kinda of wheeling do you do most? what is your final drive ratio?

This is just my trail rig. But I have to do a lot of streat driving to get to where I want to wheel. It is used primarly for rock cralwing but I do hunt out of it, and take it out into the snow. With the cralwer ingaged I believe I woukld be at 95:1 with 35's and 4.88's.

I have been happy with the Centerforce I that I put in almost four years ago. I am pretty hard on it and I also have a Marlin Ultimate dual setup. Finial drive ratio 205-1 according to Marlin. <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

centerforce makes a great product and is what i put in all my trucks. they make sevaral diffrent clutches for a toyota. i prefer the dual friction.

hey-

i'm currently using a LC Eng. dual composite clutch, and frankly, would not spend the money for it again. it is extreemly positive, and will not slip, but i don't think it's really neccesary with the dual cases.

my truck had 35's and 4.1 gears on it when i bought it, and the stock clutch (115000 miles) would slip badly in low range. i thought the "super clutch" would be the answer, but regearing and a crawler box took care of that anyway. when i replace the clutch again, i'll be going back to a high quality stock type.

later

I've got Marlin's clutch in my truck. It's been in there for a couple years now, no problems. I drove with the stock clutch for almost 170k miles. I've got the dual t-case with 4.70s in the rear case. I'm happy with it so far.

I did some investigation and found out that the marlin clutch is that same as A centerforce type 1. But it is looking like i will go the dual friction.
