Well the clutch is rather important and is worth spending a little more to get a good one. Also if you are wanting to add more power down the road, no sense putting something that will just get you by. I am running a southbend single disk 13" rated for 550 horse power and 1100 foot pounds. The wife can still drive the truck and she didn't notice any pedal change between factory and this clutch. I got it for an even 1000 bucks, not really a budget item, however I kept in mind that 1. I wanted more power and 2. I wanted to still tow.
