Clutch replacement.

Hey all.

It's been a LONG time since I've posted here. Right now, my truck is in storage until I get back from overseas, but that's not the point.

The point is, I need a new clutch. One of the last things I did was tow a full-size Blazer uphill and that about finished off the original clutch.

So, I've used the search button and Google and came up with nothing definitive.

I want something better than stock. Something with some meat on it for towing and offroading.

I have an 02 FX4 with about 88K on it.

Bottom line up front, what would be a good clutch to use?

I would go with a OE slave cylinder and a center force clutch plate and flywheel.

I was looking into those and you know what, they just look so cheap. $350 isn't cheap though, I guess.

For my clutch replacement I got my clutch plate, cover, and slave from Park Ford local for $250. Really a cheap set of parts considering.

The center force ones are nice. I would say if you get some heavy use from yours towing and off roading they are a good choice. Not really any other "performance" clutch sets for Rangers.

I had my original flywheel machined for $50 local as well.

I may end up going that route. It's still going to be awhile, considering I'm still overseas.

Not to bump my own thread, but where exactly would I go about purchasing one of these Centerforce clutch kits?
