Default Thoughts on best deal on a clutch

I have an '01 Dodge 3/4ton. The throw out bearing is going out and am thinking about putting a new clutch in while i have everything apart. Any opinions or suggestions on the best clutch for the dollar. I priced one at the parts store- Sach clutch @ $310.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Nope. Right now I just use it driving back and forth from school, work, and home. Don't plan on doing much heavy hauling. Maybe some livestock here and there.

Hey I put a new clutch and throw out bearing in my 99 cummins a few months ago and I found a really good deal from Beansdiesel for a south bend rally clutch that came with all the nessecary parts including the throw out bearing. I did a ton of research on the company and the clutch and it was really well liked. It has done very well in my truck and I have put it through a lot since its been in. The whole set up cost (if I remember correctly) right around or a little over $500 well worth the extra cost though. I have done some pulling that was not recommended even for the truck but that clutch performed amazingly. It may be something to look into.

That is what I use mine for. But that clutch is made for the everyday driver and has the capacity to do all the things that are not in the "plan" for the day. It is a heavy duty clutch for the everday driver.

Has anyone installed a Centerforce? Mine will need a new clutch and rear end seal.
