My clutch went out last week. Need some suggestions.

I have a 2000 F250 with a PHP FU chip, cold air intake, and 4" exhaust. My stock clutch gave up last friday and i dont know what to get. I have intentions of going to stage 1 injectors in the very near future and do alot of heavy towing of 10000K range. I know a stock clutch isnt going to be strong enough (thats what just came apart on me) What would my best bet be? I need to get something ordered soon because the truck is not drivable. What do yall suggest i want to hear your opinions. Thanks

I'd say a South Bend twin disk, that would be more than you'd ever need.

2001 F250, 7.3, Automatic, 4x4, 33's, Leveled, Cobra 29 CB Radio, Single Firestick anteanna, Pioneer Head Unit, Riffraff 6637 Intake Kit, 4" turbo-back straight pipe, Dual Alternator Upper Radiator Hose, AutoMeter Boost, Pyro, Trans Temp, Delta Toolbox, Gooseneck Hitch and a heavy right footed driver...

Wishlist: 160cc single shots, GT38r, BTS, SRP 1.1

REAL TRUCKS DON'T NEED SPARKPLUGS!!

Lord, please take care of this drivin' fool...

if your going to tow make sure you get the 38K lb. pressure plate and not the 41. it makes for easier driving

2000 7.3 standard 2.6 pull truck
