Decent replacement clutch?

Looking to replace the clutch in my truck. It is bone stock except intake/exhaust but I am looking to put a TS 6 chip in. Whats a good clutch that will hold a marginal power increase from stock?

Should i replace it with a single mass? By the way nice white truck. How do you like the 4:10's? Thats what I got and it pulls pretty good, doing 65 im about 2200 rpm.

thanks (the white one in my sig? i sold it OR the white one i plan on being buried in?)

signle mass, i went with a southbend CON O now i wish i had gone with a higher rated one

i love 4.10s i run 65 about 21xx (have 285 soabout a 33" tire) and i don't drive faster can still manage about 22 MPG on the highway. i have 3.55s in the red/gray truck and i HATE towing heavier things with it.

Go with the Southbend. My dad had a Valair in his Dodge and it was slipping and making noise 40k later. He put a Southbend in and couldn't believe how much better it was, even compared to when it was new. I've got about 50k on the southbend in my truck now. Still as nice as day one. And definitely trash that dual mass flywheel.
