Clutch related noise

A few days ago, I participated in Mud Racing. (About 2' 6" of soupy mud.) Anyway, my clutch started acting up. Getting really hard to push in the clutch pedal, and a noise (kinda like grinding) was heard when shifting. The noise almost completely goes away when just driving. Any ideas? It drives fine but the noise is not good.

Does your clutch itself grind or do the gears in the transmission grind (like do you feel it in the shifter)...you may be shifting the shifter too slowly. If you go too slowly and don't have a gentle but "firm" throw, you may feel the synchros grind a little.

My clutch is not grinding. It makes a squeaking noise when the jeep is first started and for a few minutes on when pressing the clutch pedal as everything warms up. Once the vehicle is warm, the noise is pretty much gone. I know my dust cover doesn't provide a perfect seal so I am wondering if some crap got up there.

Undoubtedly you have some mud built up inside the clutch mechanism area. I'd remove the slave cylinder from the driver's side bell housing & use a garden hose to try to rinse it out thoroughly through that opening. The slave cylinder is only held in place with two bolts & it pulls away cleanly without anything to leak or disconnect once the bolts are removed. Just make sure to treat the plastic hydraulic tube gently that connects the slave to the master clutch cylinder. There is a steel push rod that protrudes out of the slave cylinder which can be pulled out of the slave if you're not careful, just make sure it doesn't pull out & fall down inside the clutch area which is not likely. This is easier done than explained.
