Consider the OE clutch and pressure plate. It's robust and what many veteran drivers here use. The vendor is LUK.

The other stuff, well, there are some here that would be happy to give you some feedback.

Get a LUK clutch kit. you can get them on line here: 1994-1995, 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler Clutch Kit - LUK 05-065 - - PartsGeek.com for $93 for a six cylinder, less for a four banger. No comment on the SB sliders.

If the flywheel is scored do not have it surfaced, it has a very slight dome. Replace it with a new flywheel.

Don't know nothing about it, outside of a tractor application.

Sometimes you don't need to improve on something that works well.

Never heard of one for a vehicle, only in big semi's.

Do some research. The luk clutch kit is the best product for your application.

That transmission is an automated manual. In other words, there's no clutch pedal, the powertrain brain does the clutching for you. In Mercedes-speak, it's similar to a tiptronic or VW dual stage gearbox.

However, nothing there is relevant to a clutch for your TJ.
