Clutch upgrade

Hey there fellow jeepers a while back I started a thrread about a noise that sounds like a squeky door when i work my clutch. A little update is that the noise only shows up when everything is warmed up and after flushing out the clutch housing with water through the openings in the bottom of the housing it has not seemed to help. I don not think it's my TOB as so many on here seem to have problems with that but it has not been completely ruled out.

Anyway the reason for this is I have been looking to upgrade my clutch. Now by clutch I mean the whole thing (TOB, pressure plate and flywheel) and while I'm at it I want to check all the linkages and pivot points as this is what I think is causing my particular problem. So to my question, I have been looking for the upgrade and can't seem to find one for a 2013. They all seem to end at 12. Anyone know if there was a change that I can't use the 12 version from centerforce? does anyone know what a good option as for manufacture of a clutch for my baby be? and where I can find it?

Any advice or info will be most welcome

Does yours rattle or make a squeaky door sound? Does it happen all the time or only when depressing the clutch? And does it do it when the jeep is cold?

My old jeep had a rattle to it that it did all the time specially when sitting in neutral. My new one makes no noise at all when engaged or sitting in neutral but once its warmed up it starts and the warmer it gets the louder it gets. I know jeeps make some stange noises and sometimes sound like thier gonna fall apart but this is one that I have never heard before. I took the piston off teh housing to check it and all is good there. When I put it back together I had a friend work the clutch while I was under the jeep and the noise is coming from the opposite side of the housing. From what I can tell the piston pushes on a lever which has a pivot point on the oppisite side and it seems that its coming from there. I haven't ripped it all apart yet so I am only assuming at this point on how it works.

When it warms up. Sounds/feels like a creaky door. Only when depressed.

Ok thanks!! I guess I will do my best to just ignore it. If or when I ever do rip it all apart I'll let you know what I find
