It all depends on what you are doing with the truck. If you are planning on going bigger, then i would recommend a full feramic clutch. it is rated at 500HP in the standard duty form and 550HP in the Heavy Duty form from ValAir Inc. South Bend does offer a good product, and has great customer service. But in my opinion(biased as it may be) they are over priced for what you get. A true 3850 Pressure plate is going to be a lot to handle for most on daily driving and goin to be grabby as well. A 3400 or even 3600 pressure plate will be plenty for your application. And also i would look into a Kevlar/Ceramic clutch as well as a full ceramic clutch. couple different options to look into and gives u plenty of leeway with horsepower and torque ratings. I would strongly suggest skipping a standard duty hub(ValAir offers that and South Bend ONLY offers a SD) and go with a heavy duty hub. You will snap an input shaft before you will break the hub on a heavy duty clutch. You can also look into a dual disc clutch as well. There are many varieties of them as well. ValAir offers anywhere from Organic/Organic to full ceramic, ValAir does also offer a full iron clutch but it is strictly suggested to only use it for competitions and not for street use. There is alot of research to do when looking for a clutch and plenty of options to look into as well.
