G56 w/Hemi clutch

Post by TwinStick » Tue Oct 14, 2014 2:30 am

Has anyone in the aftermarket stepped up yet, to offer a more HD clutch than the factory one for the G56 w/Hemi ? Just curious. If not, maybe a kind word in the right ear would get something going from the aftermarket ??? We be needin somethin better Captain ! :lol: Just sayin'.


Thanks George.
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

I haven't heard of anything in the works. If there was anyone to bother it would be South Bend Clutch. The main issues will be the fact that are very small amount of G56 equipped Hemi's exist in this world.

The only one that I'm aware of is a Centerforce Dual Friction ® - Clutch Cover & Disc (PN# DF440178)

http://www.centerforce.com/products/pro ... cover-disc

I loved mine in my XJ but have heard folks that did not like the light switch on off action of the dual friction material. My brother hated it when driving in the rain in Miami Florida with his 2006 Z06. I adjusted very quickly and really liked it but the XJ is a fairly light Jeep when compared to our trucks. For me it was good clutch and was going strong after about 90,000 on the clutch when I sold the Jeep to a friend @ 165,000 miles. The clutch is still going strong today but I do not know how many miles are on the 1991 Jeep today.
