I am about to buy a clutch, solid diff spacer, sliders, and a bikini top for my 87 Runner VERY VERY soon and would appreciate any suggestions.

My Runner will push hopefully around 450 HP running 35's which I use for street, strip, and rocks.

I was about to get the 6 puck ceramic clutch but I hear that they are on or off. (even with 6 pucks) Is that the case. I want a "better than stock" clutch if possible but I want to be able to control it and DD it.

My other big question is: Where the heck to purchase a bikini top for the 1st gen runners? Downey has one that will probably work, but isn't there anywhere else that sell them?

After completing a few forum searches, I have found that everybody says stay with organic and don't run ceramic. What should I do?

Stick with your flywheel, but the marlin clutch assembly looks great.

yeah, you don't want to go anymore than a stage 1, especially if you are gonna have it on the rocks. clutch slippage is actually helpful on the rocks so, with a lightly modified clutch, you can do all that and spend less time and money on rebuilds, parts, and replacing those parts. with all our crawlers at Off Road Solutions, we are running OEM type clutches and they perform great, even when beating upon them hard (with a 5vz-fe s/c). good luck.
