OK, first of all - you guys are an awesome wealth of knowledge so thanks!

Second, what is your preferred clutch? I am swapping in another 2.9l and I would like to replace it while I am in there. The choices are NUMEROUS. From 80 dollar kits to 500. My instinct is to go cheap with such a crappy engine. THoughts?

I believe LUK is a popular brand for a lot of Ranger enthusiasts..

My credo
Break. Upgrade. Repeat.
I went with a Luk repset when i swapped motors. The concensus was that it holds well, but is soft enough for off road where you have to ride it at times.

While you’re at it. Go ahead and upgrade to the 4.0 clutch. You’ll need a flywheel. Clutch kit. And starter.

Edit, never mind. I see you bought the clutch already
