What are your thoughts on clutches while you have it apart? I'm debating a LuK vs LuK Gold, not sure if the gold's additional petal effort, and shorter engagement window is worth the extra "clamping power". Afterall, the OEM clutch in XJs was a LuK, with many reaching 200K+ miles!

I used a NV3550, flywheel and clutch out of a 2WD Jeep Cherokee (yes they actually made a few) for the larger clutch in my Ranger. I really like the heavy flywheel. It really doesn't like it but it will take off in second without pressing the throttle. The big clutch ought to handle bigger power if I get crazy and swap rods, add studs and girdle it and go to a Malone 5.

I'm now a Centerforce dealer and have some of the High inertia (heavy) flywheels coming.
Want to get one into my XJ before it goes back on the road for the fall.

Will you have any offerings for the toyota stuff? My current plan is to get a 22re LCE heavy flywheel and machine it to fit the toyota v6 clutch. I havent purchased anything yet, and would be interested if you had anything available.
