What would be the minimal clutch I'd need for a 65hp box or possibly a wire tap box? I might add RV275 sticks as well. Would a stocker survive? I think they'll live behind a stock engine with a 65hp box. But I'm not to sure about a wiretap or RV275's + box. Trying to get by cheap on it.

Quad XZT+ and RV 275s killed my clutch. 12 1/4 inch stock Nv4500 towing.

Some have babied them for longer.

The 13" NV5600 clutches can take alot more

Fudge. How about just an XZT+? (Looking at the scout since I need gauges, it's basically a XZT with a pulse screen)

What entry level clutch would handle a 120hp fueling box and RV275s? The one good/bad thing about my setup will be the transmission. It'll have a 2wd NV4500 with a divorced NP205. So dropping the trans for clutch work won't be as bad.

I broke the center and destroyed a southbend single disc rated for 450 hp with just the edge juice and 150 hp injectors, so yeah, if you are just adding a box, id get at least the con ofe, itll handle a box and and the 65 hp injectors fine. they run bout 600 bucks roughly i think. we put a stock replacement from napa in my grandfathers 99 and it cost 500 so we should have put the southbend in it for just 100 bucks more.

I wanted to just keep the stock flywheel. I believe the clutch I have is low mileage. It'll go together with a 65hp box at most for now. Guess I'll just put it together with the parts I've got laying around and see how it does.

thatd work too. the thing with chosing a clutch is to look at what you will do with the truck over the next 2 yrs, if you haul alot and run power adders, add up what the advertised hp for each product is and then get a clutch at least 50 hp and 100 ft lbs higher then that number or if you plan on adding more aftermarket stuff, go even bigger. visit southbends website, theyv got a section called "decing what clutch you need", even if you dont buy southbend, itll at least give you an idea

Where'd you find that? I went to valair's site, but I'm having a hard time finding anything.

Edit: nevermind. I found it.

The engine is my old cracked 53 block. I'm not going to turn this one up like my current truck. It's patched together with a bunch of weld. (I didn't do it) and leaks when you run it hard. It will be in a 4x4 with 4.11 gears and some large tires though. Not rock climbing though, just mud and cruising around.
