For those of us who have been having problems with the factory clutch. I just found out the Centerforce Clutch just came up with an aftermarket kit to replace the factory flywheel and clutch. The Centerforce kit includes a high inertia flywheel that helps maintain engine RPM in rough terrain. The Centerforce flywheel is a Billet Steel Flywheel that replaces the O.E. 33 lb. flywheel with a higher quality 50 lb. Billet Steel Flywheel. Centerforce has two different kits a Dual Friction part# (KDF379176) also a Centerforce II part# (KCFT379176). Both kits include High Inertia Flywheel, Pressure Plate, Disc, Alignment Tool, Pilot Bearing, Throw Out Bearing and Bolts. Both kits are direct bolt on replacement with a higher holding capacity for those big off road tires. I called Centerforce at 928-771-8422 to get this information. Both kits fit 2012-14 3.6L JK Wrangler
Thanks for that info, I do not have problems with mine but when it does need replacing I will probably go this route.
BTW, your post read like a commercial, don't know if it is but with this being your first post it probably raises an eyebrow.
LOL just read on another forum of which you just joined and posted the exact same thread as your first post. One difference is on that forum you state your residence is Prescott Valley, AZ. coincidentally the same place Centerforce is based.
Can't find any pricing info. The OEM clutch is a ripoff at almost $500. Although, I'm concerned about the driving characteristics with a heavier flywheel with the aftermarket clutch. The rev hang is significant with the stock flywheel.

In my jeep i'm running 37's with 4.88 gears. With the stock clutch it would want to stall at times, with this heavier set up I can let the clutch out without pushing the gas and the jeep will not stall. I'm not sure but I think that a lighter flywheel is for something like road racing where you need the RPM's out of the corners.
I'm glad to see some aftermarket options coming out for the newer JKs. Choosing flywheel weight has more to do with weight of the vehicle, gearing, driving style, and engine power than just light vs. heavy. Lighter yields faster revs and retains less energy than a heavier flywheel. Heavier would retain more energy and the engine would lose less RPMs between shifts. I would think a heavier flywheel would benefit us offroad chugging along. More inertia would make it harder to bog the engine down. Just a couple of things to consider.

You didn't answer the first question. Is this SPAM? Be honest. Come on, you can do it. Regardless, this is good news but the delivery is off if you work for Centerforce.
