    You waited only 12 minuts before bumping your own thread. Bad forum etiquette.

    Subbed for potential new clutch too.

    While I haven't replaced the clutch in the Tacoma yet, in my previous two trucks I put in a Centerforce clutch, and I loved them. They hold great (spin up the engine and they grab more) and neither one wore out prematurely (one had 30K when I sold the vehicle, the other had 65K or so with a lot of heavy towing). I don't know what the design of the Tacoma is like, but if the slave cylinder is in the bellhousing (i.e. have to drop the transmission to get to it) you should replace that too while you have it apart. Bleeding them can be a pain, I recommend a vacuum bleeder (like a Mity-Vac).

    I ran a Centerforce Dual Friction in my Ranger. I would say it is an alright clutch. It did not liked to be slipped at all and would quickly heat up and start making noise if slipped. But with that said there was never an issue of clamping force. Hot or not it would grab and go. Too bad the slave cylinder was never up to the task of being a slave cylinder though.
