New Clutch Recomendations for a '02 4x4 2.7L

My clutch just started slipping a little bit, and I figure I should replace it before it goes out completely..... any recomendations?

Just to make sure:
It slips at about 2,500 rpm when I give it gas in 3rd and 4th gear... anything else it could be?

Most likely clutch. Make sure you get the whole clutch kit. Stage 4 preferably...

Check out Marlin Crawlers Heavy Duty Clutch

http://www.marlincrawler.com/clutch/...ch-kit-1200-lb

It is made by Aisin (the manufacturer of Toyota clutches)

It is more heavy duty than stock but will not take extra effort to push - Some heavy duty clutches are really hard to push in.

This should last longer and have good quality.

Make sure you replace or resurface your flywheel

Go for the full kit replacement. OEM equivalent or a little better is good. No need for some ultra heavy duty clutch as i dont think you are putting down gobs of power to necessitate it. How long did the OEM one last ?

Clutch disc, pressure plate, flywheel, throw-out bearing. Kit usually comes with the clutch alignment tool as well. May want to look into a diff plug as well for when you yank the drive shaft ( if you are gonna do it that is )

Thanks for the help. I think the Marlin Crawler is going to be he way to go... I plan on doing a 3"lift and maybe slighty larger tires so I dont think I need much more..

I just bought the truck 4 months ago... Its a 2002 and it only has 44,000 miles on it... That doesnt seem like very great life on a clutch does it?

Nope, sounds like someone's been beating that truck to hell. I was able to do insane burnouts in my 2wd taco and it still lasted 144,000.

the previous owner has no clue how to drive a manual. they probably like to hold the truck on inclines with the clutch

I haven't replaced mine yet, so these are just other brands I've heard tossed around. Not that any of these are "better" than one from Marlin Crawler, which actually sounds pretty good.

Clutch Masters
Spec
Centerforce

I've heard good things about the Marlin Crawler and ClutchMasters but some bad things about centerforce clutches if not installed correctly.

So I've had my clutch for a couple of months now and I figured I would give a quick update for others refference. The new clutch is great. Ive noticed a big difference in the performance. It grabs under all circumstances. Ive done some pretty rough offroading and it has never slipped even when its gotten hot and has taken abuse.

What inspired the update was something funnier from earlier today. I was pulling out of work made a left and some guy in an M3 hit the corner they way you figure an M3 should be driven. In order for him not to rear end me I gas the tacoma in 1st gear and slammed second, guess what.... the little 4 banger chirped 2nd gear and then went on to chirp 3rd gear..... proof that the clutch will not slip.....

I would reccomend a marlin crawler to everybody

URD has clutches in stock for that application ready to ship.

We also have clutches for the new 2TR-FE 2.7L, but they are not on the website yet.
