Don't buy a 12" clutch under any circumstances.

No 12 " clutch is an upgrade. I took out a perfectly good Sachs clutch and had a 12" SBC Con-O put in because I was afraid I'd slip the Sachs. Less than 2 years later the center of the Con-O broke. Never slipped, I was under the 400 HP/ 900 ft. lb. rating.

$1400 later, I have a 13" clutch again.

I'm glad my problem turned out to be the transfer case coupler instead of a clutch. Only cost me about $100 and change worth of parts and a couple of hours wrestling around under the truck.
