I asked the question about Parts Geek to some people and they said stay away. You might get your part, you might get the correct part, you might get nothing at all. Total crap shoot.

Carolinaclutch.com has a good price and I talked to a few who ordered from them with no problems. Its where I am going to order mine from.

Luk pricing has steadily dropped, especially since it hit ebay. I'd chance it if you call first to verify it is in stock.

Well I went with California clutches.The guy was very helpful.i ended up getting a Lux clutch.He mentioned to me they also make a gold Lux clutch but i opted for just the factory replacement.I hope I made the right decision.He said the difference was the gold has 30% more clamping force.

You made the right decision not going with the Gold version. The Gold is noisier without any real benefit where the TJ is concerned.
