Clutch life expectancy

Just curious I have a basic stock fourth generation with just a bully dog set and left on tow, I tow regularly and often heavy. Just curious about what the life expectancy of my stock clutch is? It's no biggie just curious if the 4th gens are a little stronger than the old 2nd gens.

Ha-ha figured that much what would be a good future replacement? Was thinking another south bend con ofe like I had in my 01, or I've heard good things about the heavy duty Luk clutch but can't find a 2014 part number.
