I can recommend that you need to do a little home work on the clutches. If you want a super strong clutch and do not mind the noise get the solid disc. If you want it to be quite like the factory one then get the one with springs in it. I did not know there was a difference and just bought one off the shelf. Did not learn this tid bit of information until I talked to the owner himself of SB. Now if the truck is sitting idle it sound like the transmission is crushing rocks. Not a big deal at first but has become annoying over time. JJ

I have read up on them, I dont mind a little noise just as long as the clutch is super strong and long lasting. This is also my daily driver but like I said I want the best performance out of the clutch. which clutch did you get and how do you like it all around ?

since you're in Northern KY have you looked into getting a clutch from Haisley? They are in Indiana probably not to far from you maybe a few hours. Me and my buddy went down there one day and picked up a clutch for his 96. They are known more for their work on the cummins but their clutches for the Ford are very good. My buddy loves his. About South Bend Clutch, I live 15-20 minutes away from them.

i can get you any SB clutch you want... but you might also want to look into Valair clutches.... a lil cheaper price and they hold up very well

Well you can check with Raul or you can call up Haisley. They are not the cheapest clutches but they will last and handle abuse. Haisley Machine, Cummins diesel performance for Dodge trucks, everything for your project, a little or a lot - Haisley Machine

I love the clutch. Driving down the road it is quite as can be. Good engagement not jerky and holds strong. Just sounds like a rock crusher going around if it is sitting idle with the clutch out. Oh and it is the 450HP OFE. JJ

Mine makes some nose at idle as well so i dont think that it will be a problem. does anyone have and recomedations for what type of SB clutch to get. I plan on stage I injectors, adrenaline HPOP, electric fuel, intercooler, and a wicket wheel all with in teh next 2-3 months. Im close to florence. do you know where the Tewes Turkey farm is in Erlanger? If your from beaverlick that would be near BigBone right?
