Got a Manual. Will My Stock Clutch Hold???

My mods are in my sig. The clutch in my truck was replaced just before i bought it (about 20k ago), but its a stock clutch. I really wanna do some pulls but my truck is a daily work truck, i cant afford for it to be down. From what i've learned, 3rd in 4-lo is the way to pull, but how bad is my clutch gonna burn off the start? I cant imagine it holding up to more than a couple pulls. Any thoughts???

I'd be interested in hearing what people say, I'm wanting a 7.3 Stroker but want the 6spd manual over the 4spd auto for the extra gearing going up the passes. I also want to do some pulls from time to time, cause its a diesle and can and because its cool, but am concerned about the manual holding up.

anyone got an answer to this? I have the same exact question. Few mods, stock clutch, would like to do a pull or two for fun, but I am concerned that my stock clutch will die.

Sled pulling with any single disc clutch is not a good idea. Heck, usually a super duty with a hot chip on the street will slip a stock clutch

Most go to a dual disc for sled pulling

my bf had a 6spd w stock clutch he had 4:10 gears and he had 265/75 tires and he could do 3rd low and hed shift to 4th ..... he did that for 3 yrs about 6-7 times through the summer and he hauled huge campers and boats workin at his dads business.... the only time he noticed his clutch slipping was when he tried using our buddies triple bully dog programmer..... idk if 33s will let you pull in 3rd from the start... especially if you have 3:73s... i had a 96 w 4:10s and had 33s and had to pull 2nd low range...
