Centerforce makes a great clutch. I always say if you're going to go to all the trouble to drop the transfer case and do a clutch job, you may as well put a premium clutch and throw-out bearing back in that will last the life of the truck under reasonable driving conditions.

I got a dual friction LC Engineering clutch and have been happy with it so far.

I've installed three Centerforce Dual friction clutches for various people, and all are happy with the clutch. 1 had a s/c the other 2 do rockcrawling. I'd highly recommend them. The dual friction kit does NOT come with a throwout bearing, pilot bearing or alignment tool. Be sure to get the bearings and the alignment tool if needed. I also STRONGLY recommend you get a Toyota throwout bearing as they seem less prone to bearing squeal.

Good pricing on the dual friction is here: www.dualfriction.com

HA! this is an offroad forum not customtacos.com
Personally I think Centerforce clutches are great. Not only do we not like Fram, we apparently don't like Centerforce...
:rolleyes:

:eek: The reason we have Toyotas is so they will outlast a clutch! :D

I've heard of Toyota clutches going 200,000 miles. That of course is with a mature driver behind the wheel.

Which one did you get? Do you wheel your truck. I'm looking to upgrade to an ACT clutch.

I have the TA2-HD00. Grabs nice and hard and I do occasionally wheel my truck. It can support up to 408 ft/lbs and it easily handles the power of my charger. Nice smooth engagement when you want it and also shortens the length the pedal has to travel for engagement. Shop around though the prices vary quite a bit on these...I got mine for 450.00. Cheapest price I found.

Thanks. Did you get it online? Got a link? How much did you pay for install?

I think most people respect Centerforce clutches, but most Tacomas don't really need that much of a clutch. That's why many people recommend the stock clutch - they hold up very well for most people.
