if you are going to have the clutch replaced there are a few things to consider......as you mentioned the brand PP and clutch? plus you will want to replace the slave cylinder.the slave cylinders on these trucks are a weak link so you want to know what brand they are proposing to install also because of the age of the truck you will want to consider dropping the flywheel and replacing the rear main seal. are they going to change the pilot bearing? how about replacing or turning the flywheel? are the plugs near your shift rail rotting? How about the front seal of the tranny?

well i just got my truck back today. it sat in the lot and didnt move. they went out looked under it saw i had no sway bars and then charged me 10 bucks for labor.they wanted 442.00 to replace all clutch components and 250 to replace slave cylender and something else. and my parents and grandparents threw a fit over the price and refuse to even help pay for it. so i guess my truck is stuck sitting in my driveway until i can get some parts to change it myself or get the money to have them do some how. sad day for me

i am wandering if it would be easier to just get a new engine and tranny. i have been wanting a 4.0 for a while now. but i cant ever find a engine tranny combo deal for a good price.
