Oh by the way, even if you just sit back and tell me what to do, I can do the work, and there is all the free beer you can drink!!!

when are you wanting to do this? Clutch replacement is pretty simple for the most part. I may be willing to help if I can find a good time where I'm actually in town.

I would like to do it sometime after the 15th of Jan. (thats when I get paid again). The truck drives fine on the road, but I would like to be able to take it offroad. The last couple times I MILDLY took it offroad, the clutch slipped pretty bad. I don't trust it offroad so the sooner the better. Have you done a clutch job before on one of these? Approx how long does it take?

Alright then, Ill get the parts and let you know at least a week in advance before I decide to do it. Still don't know what clutch I am going to go with yet... any suggestions?

most aftermarket clutch kits will not include the pilot bearing so you must remember to order one from toyota.. I can get it locally at a pretty decent price.

I'd stick with all OEM clutch stuff.

pick u up
----
pressure plate
clutch disk
pilot bearing
throwout bearing
and depending on how many miles the clutch release fork couldn't hurt ! If your's was a 4cyl 2.7 I have all of the above sitting in my closet for the past year

It also makes it easier if you have a clutch alignment tool. This tool is usually a small piece of plastic that has splines like the input shaft of your tranny. You insert it into the pilot bearing like you transmission will, and then you install the pressure plate.

I bought a kit from Pep Boys which included the tool and then returned it after install.

Makes for an easier install when stabbing the transmission back into place.

I don't know about pricing of parts for the taco, but just did thew clutch on my older 4runner sbout 2 weeks ago, took us Id say three hours and I bought everything I needed from Orileiys for under 100 bucks.

the one place you will really need help is getting the tranny down and out of the way and again putting it up and stabbing the shaft. I had two other helpers and we got it done.
Also a good floor jack.....
