Default New clutch

My truck's due for a new clutch and I've always had automatic transmissions, so I've never messed with buying a clutch. Is there any difference in clutches as in heavy duty or anything like that or are they all pretty much the same general clutches? I'm a diesel mechanic and I know you can get different ones for 10 wheelers so I wasn't sure on regular vehicles. Thanks for the help. My truck is listed in my signature.

Looks like it. I'm going with LUK for my clutch replacement as well. That looks like a good price too.
