2012 Ram 3500

My clutch is slipping. I want one of 3 things to happen when I put the truck in gear.
1. Go
2. Tires spin
3. Stall

Whats the best clutch I can purchase that has the most holding power?
I do have a chip. The program I run on, I think I'm about 20-30 hp over stock.

Southbend is the best. For only 30 hp over you are really just stock.
Is it a diesel or gasser? The 6.7 diesel clutches are over a grand for the G56 transmission. The 5.9 can be a little cheaper.

Yep, Southbend is good, Valair makes a decent one as well. If only lightly chipped, a single disc will do. I went to the brass/ceramic type clutch many years ago. They are aggressive and don't slip, but don't expect them to be smooth when letting the pedal up. I used to wear out an organic clutch every year on the K-30 hauling hay out of the field, and went to these. That clutch has lasted for years.

Thanks guys for the tips on brand to look for.
Yes, the truck is a diesel.

I was expecting to drop around $1,000 on the part alone, considering that the part was quality.
I will not be doing the repair my self. I'll have to get a shop to do it. But I want to at least have the say on what clutch is installed.

Maybe I'm running a little more then? I'll have to check my book. I know I have several "levels" to choose from. I've been running on a program considered as towing or as in the book one level above stock. It accomplishes what I wanted it to and that's enough for me.
