Clutch life will vary depending upon driving style and some luck as well.What are some of the known issues? I saw something here about potential clutch problems, is that in general or constant trailering or offroading in high range when low would be better? Only trailering I'd be doing would be occasionally transporting my polaris ranger [1200lb + 800lb trailer] and that's it. I saw something else about leaf springs being overloaded easily. Is that just too much weight or the springs fail and "W"? Sorry for all the questions, never had a midsized truck so im not sure of that their capacities vs half tons im used to.
Our factory leaf springs are a bit of a weak point especially if one tows/hauls often. I haul and replaced mine w/ heavier duty units which coincidentally improved my truck's ride quality whether loaded or unloaded. YMMV
