Newbie wants Clutch Brand Advice

Hi guys. Brand spanking new here. We have quite a few Powerstroke trucks 7.3s, 6.0s, and now 6.7s. One of our older 7.3L F450s needs a new clutch. It is a FWD and is pretty much always pulling long distances at 26,000 lbs to avoid our drivers getting CDLs. I figgered there'd be a Powerstroke forum to get some advice. Do we do a Ford Heavy duty or what is the respected aftermarket clutch/pressure plate ya'll would recommend.

Our brand new 2011 F450 w/ the new 6.7 leaves for a job tomorrow. Maiden voyage so we're holding our breath. Will be reading lots here about caring for our 6.0L F450s.

I like my Southbend clutch, it's good to 400hp and thats plenty for me. They have any clutch for any situation you could possibly have.
