Hello and Clutch Question

Hello all....new to this site, but it looks to be VERY helpful and nice to be among fellow jeepers.

I have a 92 jeep YJ with the 4 cyl, and manual. I was up in the mountains doing some trail riding with it, and got trapped forcing me to attempt to back up a rather steep incline. While doing this I got the clutch very hot and infact smelt it burning (it pushed the 4 cyl to it's limits, that's for sure). I had wished I went ahead and put it into 4WD Low, but hindsight is 20/20. With that happening and the rest of the day having a very mushy clutch I managed to get out and home. Today I changed the trani fluid and it appears as though the clutch is ok, but I'm sure it's very worn.

My question is should I go ahead and change out the clutch? If so, what clutch does everyone recommend? Any other hints would be great. Thanks in advance.

Sachs clutch and second choice Valeo for me. get the super kit they offer. also have flywheel machined.
ide say since you overheated and you do actively 4wheel you should replace it and the slavecylinder while your at it.
sorry, im a bit all over the place in thought, its early.
