    So I was driving home from work on Friday, my truck/clutch has been running fine and I went to change gear and my clutch would not dissengage.

    I drove it to the dealership on Sunday with no clutch and had them look at it. They said there is no problem with the hydrolics or linkages so the problem is inside the clutch. It has never slipped or had any problems.

    They want $1850!!! to install a new clutch kit.

    The original only lasted 110,000kms which is bullshit, what are my options?

    Any reviews on the URD stuff? A stage 2 is $460 and surely I could get it installed for $500 or something?

    Edit: You might have someone pump your clutch pedal while you go underneath and watch the clutch fork for movement. Not sure I would trust their diagnostics with that ridiculous estimate.

    1850 is highway robbery. Five or six hours of labor at 90-100 bucks an hour plus parts. I know the clutch kits are expensive on these, but as you said the URD parts are under 500. The stealer has earned their name in your case.
