zf6 slipping

I have a 2001 f350 with the zf6 manual. the clutch started to slip. The truck has some power adders, not sure of hp or tq numbers, it has swamp injetors (176/145??) gt38r with 1.0 pedistall, cai, ts6 chip. PO said it had a newer south bend clutch in it. is there anything else that can make the clutch slip, other than a bad clutch. I do pull a trailer with round bales a couple times a year, and a two place horse trailer with horses.Mostly just my daily driver, what would you recommend for a clutch if this one does need replacing?

2001 f350 eclb 4x4 k&n cold air 5" exhaust dual stacks (soon to change) bigger turbo swamp inj. Ts6 '05 lights & grill f450 ambulance springs in the rear. 4" front 3" rear lift 305/75/16 bfg at. 6 speed manual.

Re: zf6 slipping

Mileage? On an '01 odds are you're up there in miles... I've seen stockers go with less than 100k, some last upwards of 300k. Flip a coin. Replace your existing clutch/throwout/pilot bearing and if you want to add some cheap security put a heavier release fork in the bell. NAPA can steer you right on the disc/pressure plate and bearings in the $300 range and if you want to beef it up a notch (who doesn't) you can spend around $500 on a couple options.

The ZF is an incredibly strong tranny.... I hammer mine regularly and none of them have the coolers anymore. My trucks are by no means quarter mile trucks, more comparable to yours - I believe the phrase I saw here once was 'awesome driving manners.'

Re: zf6 slipping

Normally I'd say you need to up your budget for that setup BUT I just happen to have a used south bend for sale with less than 10,000 miles on it that would do you quite well ... PM sent
