Clutch question

Well it looks like it is about time to replace the clutch. I am looking at one of the Centerforce II clutch and was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. I need a stronger clutch but still need to be able to drive it almost daily.
2 1/2" suspension lift, 2" body lift, and 1 1/4" shackles. 9000LB Superwinch. KC lights and TJ flares all sitting on 33" BFG KOs and Dana 44s.

How long did your original clutch last? Probably quite a long time. Just put an OEM one back in it.

If you rock crawl your Jeep I would suggest AGAINST the Centerforce. Centerforce clutches have weights on them and are designed to clamp tighter the higher they rev. When was the last time you were crawlin over some rocks @ 5,000 RPM??? A good NEW stock replacement from Carquest or NAPA will do you great. I have a LUK Stock replacement clutch in my TJ with a 2.5 and 37's and it works great. You should be able to get a NEW not reman clutch for about 200 bucks.

Absolute is absolutly correct.
If all you do is rockcrawl and drive on the street then OEM is the way to go.
If you are a high RPM mud slinger or you like to occasionally play in the sand dunes of the Southwest (like me) the Centerforce could be an upgrade you might want.
If I need it, it is there. I feel it is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
