Clutch kits - any advise?

I have to change my 95's clutch and as I approached the buying part I realized that there are too many to choose from and I know nothing about them. So, with that said I was hoping to get any suggestions and pointers on the topic. Are there (I'm sure there are) kits that have to be avoided? What should be in the kit other than bearing, friction plate, cover, and the alignment tool? Any other pointers would be greatly appreciated

It's been 12 to 15 years since I did mine so memory is dim. I used whatever kit my local auto parts store had and it came with the throw-out bearing/slave cylinder, pressure plate, clutch disk and the pilot bushing that is pressed into the flywheel. I remember I had to buy the alignment tool separately.

My YJ is a '91 and may be a little different than yours. If I remember correctly, the bell-housing had Torx, SAE and metric bolts. I cussed most of the rainy weekend as I lay under the Jeep in the driveway, pulling the tranny and TXfer case all because the slave-cylinder leaked fluid. Then like a fool, I didn't replace the pressure plate and clutch plate because they had little wear.

The following weekend I changed a Toyota slave-cylinder in half an hour.

Find out if you can use a clutch kit from LUK. Thats what I replaced my TJ clutch with after strong suggestions on this forum. Its cheap and a quality clutch.
Not sure if its available for the 4 cyl. YJ though.
