Not too bad to pull trans and replace the clutch

Pull shifter/boot and 4x4 shift(has pinch bolt below)
Pull drive shaft(s) from trans/transfer case end
Remove slave cyl and have something to hold pressure on the rod
Remove inspection cover, add trans jack
Remove crossmember, unplug wiring
Remove bellhousing bolts and pull the trans out
Remove and replace clutch
Reverse procedure for install.

I would suggest either a LuK clutch or a Southbend clutch, definatly get a single mass flywheel.

i've got a single mass south bend and i love it....grabs every time never slips and i have been known to drive my truck alittle ruff....i've done multiple boosted launches and it smells alittle funny when its burnin but man it drives nice....the only thing i have to complain about it that its big enough it lugs the engine right down as soon as it starts to engage....i only have to push maybe 4in to get it to disengage and it shifts great...

The dual masses blow. I've heard nothing but great things about the South Bend singles!!

i dont mean to hijack the thread, but i need a new clutch too and was eyeing up the Volair and was wondering if any one knows if the one with the HD hub is worth the extra money, they are both rated at the same horsepower and torque levels.
any opinions?

I got the HD hub with mine, I would think the hd hub would be better than the oem style IMO.

I bought the Con OFE. I have yet to install it along with fixing the broken tranny but it is on my list of things to get done. Why did I go with a SB????? Not sure. If they are they standard that all are compared to then I just decided I wanted the best. Maybe I wasted my money. Not sure...JJ
