New Truck!!!

Just bought a new used truck. 95 crew cab dually OBS 7.3 5 speed 172,000 for $6k. I know it doesn't have as much power as my 2000 but it feels way stronger, could be the 4:10 and 5 speed (2000 has auto, 3:55's). What is a good replacement clutch and flywheel for the dual mass? How much does it cost? The previous owner said that the only problem he had was putting clutches in it every 50k. I plan on towing 15 to 16k with this truck on a regular basis. I have no doubt I will need an upgrade in the clutch department I think?
Thanks

How much torque can these clutches handle? This truck will get a couple of mods, Gauges, 4" exhaust, chip for heavy towing ( don't know what one yet ). Would like to have around 500 to 550 f.t.# of torque if possible. No pic's in Michigan, 5 deg out, roads are salt, plus she's going in for surgery to make her ready for hauling \ her first annual CMV inspection.
