You may want to step up to the 3600. How much pulling do you plan on doing?

the 3250 is mainly suited to the race track and doing burnouts, and daily driving. you could sled pull with it. but i wouldnt get to crazy with that. if you wanted to pull i would step up to either the 3600 or 3850. :thumbsup

If your not going to pull but once or twice just go with the 3250 DD sprung hub ceramic.

how streetable is the 3600 / 3850.

would it be THAT bad to run a daily driver / every weekend puller on one?

what are the things you have to get
" used " to. ?

is it just gear roll over ? engagement different ?

when i upgrade, i want to ensure i have 2x the clutch i actually need just in case, so want a few details..

Your going to have to "re-drive" the truck. The clutch engauge point is going to be different, clutch pedel pressure is going to be heavier, and the clutch itself is going to be SUPER STICKY!! ... But you WILL get used to it
