Going to need a clutch

I have an 08 4x4 with mini maxx, banks CAI, DPF deleted. I am starting to get a lot of slip in the clutch on most any tune over 80HP once I reach about 2000 RPM and the power really kicks in. I'm planning on going with a southbend 3250 dual disc. So my question is are there any special things I need to do to get the tranny out? I've done several clutches before but always on older cars and trucks from the 60's and 70's. I know I'm going to have to get new flywheel bolts. I probably won't have access to a lift but have a good size well stocked shop. Any help or ideas are appreciated.

I just did my clutch in mine. I went with OEM because of an insane crazy deal I found on an OEM one. I replaced the throw out bearing, fly whee bolts(have your flywheel resurfaced if your reusing it), pressure plate bolts, also order a rear main seal. mine looked good but I didnt want to be down another couple days to get one ordered in.

Other than that, maybe change the t-case and transmission fluid.

OH btw, I highly recommend doing a 4" SDP downpipe at the same time. Makes life so much easier when the trans is out.

Thanks I didn't think about the down pipe or rear main but that's a good idea. Did you have to do anything special to get the tranny out or was there enough room between the firewall and bellhousing to pull it back far enough?

Also take off the shift tower from in the cab and stuff a rag in it. make life alot easier when sliding the transmission back.

Other than that, that is about it.

Thanks for the info. I've never had a dual disc but from what I've read the street ones aren't supposed to be to bad. I tow a fairly heavy toy hauler and don't want to take a chance with having a problem again later that was my main reason for wanting the dual disc.

I know you have what you wanted. But for anyone that may be looking into this, I think Jarred Rice from River City Diesel is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to clutches for the 5R110 and he also carries them.
