how much extra work is changing the clutch if the t-case is dropped?

If I have the t-case dropped is changing the clutch pretty easy? Or still a large project?

I have the case out and wonder if I should change a perfectly working clutch on a 99 TJ (factory, 70k miles).

Not much if you have over 10k miles on it and have the t-case dropped you should change the clutch and pressure plate out.

Any suggestions on what to get? Or head straight to autozone and just grab what fits?

Centerforce is said to be one of the best. Some on here say the OEM LUK that is factory installed is great too. If you feel like pulling the tranny go for it. It's not an easy task. There's write ups on here that will explain what you need as far as equipment and torque specs etc.
