    been looking into this myself. Found a few threads on here using google. Was a really good write up by a guy with an X Runner. Haven't seen anything 4wd specific but I would guess it would be almost the same (minus the part where you have to jack up the truck... since us 4wd folks have more clearance :D)

    Yeah, doesn't look too hard. Just a lot of parts to take off and put on!

    You going with a stock replacement? I have been looking at the URD stage 3 or 3+ for mine (I offroad a fair bit... mmmm burning clutch smell!... and figure a beefier clutch wouldn't hurt. And the stock clutch is so soft that a little bit more stiffness on the pedal wouldn't bother me)

    Nah I've read reviews on clutches on here n x runner forums they said if you don't race the truck or have an x runner don't consider any competition clutches or any of that for a 4wd you'll burn it up way faster but has anyone had the urd throwout bearing kit installed ? They said that was better than factory no more chirp

    My shop has replaced several clutches on 2nd gen trucks. Is there something specific you want to know?

    It is not difficult at all as long as you have the proper tools. In a shop environment I have a full lift, and air tools, which make the job a simple one. Normal clutch replacement here in a 4wd is about 3 hours. Longer if you don't have the air tools or a full lift, but still something you could tackle on a Saturday.

    check out my build
    I've done it twice in my tacoma. The hardest part about it is getting to the top bolts of the transmision. My father in law has a super long socket extension (~3 feet) where I was able to get to the bolts from the back end of the transmision.

    Love my 3 foot socket extension! Can't really do quick transmission repairs without it.
