Transmission Questions

Hello All,

Recently, the throwout bearing in my 04 Wrangler X just, well, imploded on me. I find this vexing due to the Wrangler only having just hit 64k, and my incessant babying of the vehicle.

I am looking to replace the bearing, but I thought I would ask the pros here whether it would be wise to bite the bullet and install a full or partial clutch package while I'm at it.

I doubt it would be necessary- the clutch still acts fine, and the hydraulics are not leaking or showing any sort of damage.

The major cost is labor, weither yours or the shops. While everything is down you may as well replace it all.
