Since your truck is a '05 which 6spd do you have? The NV5600 or the newer G56? The NV clutch is a little more forgiving than the G56 when it comes to power.
Either way South Bend and Valair makes excellent clutches. For driveability stick with the OFE style of clutches.

And you will probably need a bigger lift pump so you won't drain the rail at the higher levels.

Ya, you have the NV5600. Airdog 100 is probably your best option for lift pump if you don't plan on many more mods afterwards, if not airdog 150. they're 500 bucks..

a clutch could run from 1500-2000+ depending what you go with.. IMO a CON OFE from south bend will be good for you.
