I just installed a new Luk clutch kit and flywheel. It feels very light and catches close to release. It reminds me of a Civic or Corolla... not very truck like.
Is the lightness typical of a new clutch? Is there an adjustment that releases the clutch closer to letoff?
I could maybe get used to the lightness but the early release seems like off-roading and towing annoying.

That would be typical of a diaphragm clutch. The efforts are lighter when new and get heavier as it wears. You slowly adapted to the clutch feel as it wore. You are back to a new starting point again.

Sounds good. I've never had a new clutch feel this light though. I've been driving manuals for decades but I feel like an amateur with this one.

Gen 1 or 2 Frontier?
IFF Gen 2: V6/6-sp or I4/5-sp? Is it safe to say your new flywheel is a dual mass unit?

Sorry... I thought the drivetrain was divided by gens. It's a 2nd generation 4.0/6-speed with the dual mass flywheel.
I'm pretty sure the first generation Frontier, or any previous model, is not close to being a pain in the butt that this one was replacing the clutch and flywheel.
