    Hey guys, I'm new to the X-Runner community, I literally just picked up my X-Runner. I noticed, whoever, the clutch seemed a bit hard to press down. Is this just how these trucks are? It's a 2005 with around 100K on it, so I expect to do a few things like bleed the clutch, check the master and slave for leaks, etc. but was wondering if that's just how these are.

    I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions as I get to know this truck and clean it up and put my personal touches on it.

    Thanks!

    Black headlight mod huh?
    Your truck has been molested.

    Don't be surprised if you have an aftermarket clutch.

    You can probably find the previous owner on XRU.

    Also the black panel on the front bumper is missing... But anyways, The clutches are a bit stiff compared to several other cars that I have driven with a manual. You get used to it after a while.
