1989 4x4 Clutch job

I love my 1989 4x4, 220,000 miles, V6 beauty. I bought her off the guy who bought her off the lot. She seems to need a new clutch. All
the symptoms are present, slipping when climbing hills, and more recently the smell of clutch plate. Anybody know how long the clutch takes to replace on a 4x4? What I should expect to pay in labor and parts. Thanks, Ed

Ed, read the following carefully...pay attention to the wording used.......
here goes......
If all the correct replacement parts are sitting next to vehicle when I start the job...... I can remove and replace the transmission assembly, clutch slave and master cylinders, pilot bearing/bushing, and have the truck drivable........in less than 2 hours on your truck if all the fasteners come off using normal removal proceedures, perfecting a complete clutch job.
fact......not fiction
A fair, nominal, market value charge for that service at a reputable shop will be in the range of 725-950 dollors, depending on shop location and all that factors into that. You should expect a ONE Year Warranty. (deduct for hydraulics if not needed)
again... fact....not fiction

That totally depends on what headers you install.

Somewhat rue but a bigger factory yet is what you hook up to header. Engines need a little back pressure for best low RPM responce and while a header can add a little top end they can hurt part throttle lower RPM responce. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com

From all accounts the best set up is a 4 into 2 into 1 header for the 8s, and the front and rear into one followed by the middle into the two then two into one just before the cat converter for the 6s.
I have a feeling that I may be up for a set soon as the clutch is slowely getting shorter and shorter with a tad of slip every so often. Will let you know when I fit a set of headers.

============== Torque, good deal, glad to hear you're rolling. Thanks for the follow up.
Out of curiousity, what all did they replace for the 715 dollors? Hydraulics?
