Maybe that's a 2nd gen thing or your heavy feet, my 95 is still running on its factory clutch and brake pads at 148k. I have no idea how the owner(s?) before me drove it but for the last 20k I've been going offroading monthly and driving it daily.Sometimes I do abuse the clutch and I feel its going to fail soon however. Your 100& sure about the TOB tho.
In the end ,clutch isn't the greatest but its not the worse plus its a truck
so you know it won't shift as smooth as a import tuner.
