You can do it!
Replace all the parts.
Have the flywheel resurfaced.
Do it right do it once.

I dunno about the 2.4L engine equipped TJ but the factory specifically warns against resurfacing the flywheel for TJs with the 4.0L and 2.5L engines. The flywheel has a crown on it to smooth clutch engagement which would be removed if it were resurfaced. At the most, the factory says to lightly hand sand the surface of the flywheel with emory cloth or a mild grade of sandpaper if any glazing is present but that's it.

The 2.4L may be different but I kind of doubt it.

How nice to see I get to pay $270 plus $65 for my clutch and flywheel.
WTF is the clutch so much?

Why do you think you need a new flywheel? The TJ rarely needs its flywheel replaced when replacing the clutch.

Thanks for the heads up. I did not know this.
