Clutch release bearings

I need a little help here guys. I have a '05 rubicon unlimited with a manual transmission. I went wheelin' and got real good and stuck in some mud. We tried to get it out and finally called a professional. Now my Release bearings are making noise. I'm going to replace them, but i'm wondering if there is a aftermarket set, one that would sealed perhaps or at least heavier duty then stock so mud won't get in there in grind it away. Thanks Guys

The throwout bearing is already sealed, so would be aftermarket throwout bearings. You probably got mud in everything else, like between the pressure plate and clutch disk. Once you get things working again, learn to never step on the clutch when you're in deep mud or muddy water to prevent this from happening again. If you get stuck, don't step on the clutch. Kill the engine, shift into 1st without stepping on the clutch. Then start the engine while in 1st gear and you'll be moving again. This of course assumes you already defeated the clutch interlock by installing a fuse into the #20 position on the fuse panel per the instructions in your owners manual.

thank you

I didn't realize they were already sealed. I'll have to check out the fuse fix you're talking about as well. Does anyone know if the OEM bearings and aftermarket ones are any different. I figure if i'm going to replace them get the best or at least better. thanks for the help.
