Had really good luck with my Centerforce DF...been in there for about 4 years, and I'm VERY hard on my clutch.

I tore up a brand new stock cluch in 3 months and now run a centerforce 2 dual friction clutch for over a year and no problems. cluctch is twice the price as stock $170-190 but is worth every penny. Do it and forget it.

For a stock tranny and t-case and 35" tires I would go with an aftermarket clutch like the centerforce. But with gears in the t-case, 4:1 or lower I would stay with the stock clutch.

Brent at T.T. seems to swear by this approach as well.

I stick with the stock ones too .
How can you beat this price for a new disc when thats all that goes bad most of the time anyway. I can change 10 of them for the price of a centerforce.

Back when I ran a stock clutch, I bought 2 kits at Autozone with lifetime warranties. I ran one in the zook and the other stayed in the parts box. When I smoked one, I swapped it out and then returned the dead one when I got back off the trail. Got pretty good at it - I can swap a clutch in under 30 minutes now (with welding gloves). The replaced (free for life!) clutch went back into the parts box...
