Clutch problem

I have a 2013, 2 door. I did some pretty heavy wheeling this weekend and got into a pretty bad spot on a steep hill. Started sliding back sideways so I tried to stay on the gas. I freaked out a little and was into the clutch more than I should've been. Finally when I made the hill, I got out and could instantly smell the dreaded burning clutch smell . Once I got it back out on the main roads, from starting in first gear I can feel an ever-so-slightly slip when taking off. If someone else drove my Jeep they probably wouldn't even notice it. But since I drive it every day, I can tell a difference. My question is, does anyone have the Centerforce clutch in their Jeep? And if so where can you find it for the 2013 model? I've searched and searched but can only find, up to 2011 (3.8L) model. TIA for any help and information!

Before you tear into it, drive it a while. You might have just glazed it over a little. That shouldn't last very long.

When the clutch is worn, you'll normally feel the "slip" in the highest gear first. For me it was driving down the highway and attempting to accelerate in 5th gear (it was my subaru) the rpm's would take off but the car wouldn't go...
