I guess it depend on how you use your truck, if your pullin on it all the time then probably not goin to last long, but if you take care of it it will last a while yet. Actually I'm suprised it's still holding up to your tw chip. I like my South Bend clutch and dosen't have any problems with my TS.

I recomend the SB also. Just installed mine a few weeks back... best thing I have done so far. If you get sick of the long shifting between gears I suggest the short throw shift kit.

My truck was a highway truck it has 321K on it I am not sure if the PO did any clutch work but other wise my clutch is still holding but I can downshift into second and if I go into the at normal shift a small chirp grind. other than that doesn't make any noise.
