as the clutch, I think you will need a lift or something but it will be tough. You will also need clutch centering tool which is cheap. You will also need a torque wrench. Search for a clutch replacement write up.
I think he's talking about the compressor clutch, which is inside the compressor unit. Like ct-tj said, just get a cheap compressor from the junk yard or off ebay. It's an easy change.
But first question I would ask. When he recharged the system with the leak detector, did it feel cold to you?
You can get a cheap set of A/C R34 gauges at Harbour Frieght. Look in you Jeep service manual for the pressures. I don't know what the readings should be cause I'm at work. But if you overfill with freon, you could damage the compressor. I could be just a relay.
