has it always done it or did it just start?
is it a stock clutch?
and how long have you been driving a manual?

The clutch fluid level could be overserviced, check it for proper level. If it only happens when it's cold, you can compensate by putting the t-case in neutral and then putting the tranny in gear, and letting the entire drivetrain warm-up before you start driving.

I've noticed out of all the manual's I've driven, the Jeep is extremely sensitive, so it could be your driving habits too like the other guys mentioned.

Unfortunately, that is one of the symptoms of a clutch that's on it's way out.

Agreed. Sounds like your pressure plate is warped!

It is better off than a lot of Jeeps they don't jump at all. Yeah something is up with your clutch. If you have driven a manual trans before you should get a smooth takeoff.

Clutch is on the way out my friend. Mine did the same thing before crapping out. New kit wasn't too expensive and me and buddy changed it out. Well, he changed it, I just handed him the tools and beers.
