to zone or not to zone

well here goes need to replace what I assume is the original clutch set up on my 93 idi zf 5 speed supercab dulley 273000 miles I know it came with a dual mass set up but am thinking about going back with the solid flywheel set up from the zone for 480$ this will bump me up to a 12 inch clutch I know south bend makes the same kit for 600$ and I have heard good things about them but the zone has a warenty and stores every were any one have any experince with this swap I will be doing it on the ground in a state park and trying to minumize the pain on my dwindiling finances

The DM system was not used on *all* models, some had a standard FW so I see no reason (other than NVH) to retain a DM FW. In fact, I do not like them one bit, more parts to break.
