Replacing my clutch ext. master/slave cyl. ???

Well I'm fixin to replace the clutch master/slave sealed kit on my 97 4.0 TJ. I ordered it from Mopar parts but no install instructions.
I searched for info. on the subject but no luck.
I Know its a fairly easy job but I need to know if there are any tricky parts I need to know about. I kinda read somewhere that you just replace it & leave the plastic cap w/straps on the rod at the slave and then push in the CL. petal and that's what releases the system to normal......
I want to get this right. This OEM part was not cheap.
Any advice,please.

It basically just bolts on with four bolts, two top and two bottom, plus the linkage IIRC. Just treat that plastic tube gently, there's really nothing tricky other than getting it all into position while keeping the strain off the connecting tube. That tube can't be as fragile as I make it sound but...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thanks Jerry,
Just to let you know also, I changed out my trans. oil w/ Redline MTL like you suggested and I could really tell a difference in shifting right away.
My clutch m.cyl. has been the culprit lately, when I stopped & couldn't put it in gear without pumping the clutch or dbl. clutching.
Thanks to this forum and info. from Mopar dealer service rep., I figured it must a air leak in my cylinder.

Well another successful Jeep fix thanks to this & JF forums help, I got my clutch, and transmission problems finally solved:
(1) Fixed my Hurst shifter....had loose screws on handle.(Done)
(2) Fixed my hard shifting tranny...(AX-15) changed oil to Redline MTL 75W/80W GL-4 synthetic oil.(Done)
(3) Fixed my shifting problem of locking up in neutral (When stopping & out of gear could not shift into any gear without pumping clutch pedal)....Replaced external sealed master/slave (Mopar) kit. (Done) Feels like a new tranny!
You guys are the best....I thank you, my wallet thanks you, and I give myself a great big attaboy. It was sooooo easy.
