Wow, you sure about that? My TJ lasted 11 years and 167,000 miles before I replaced mine on general purposes since it hadn't yet gone bad.
But if you do need one, get the Luk OE replacement clutch (not the Luk Gold) from www.dialaclutch.com/ which for $140 or so, gets you everything you need. Clutch, pressure plate, pilot bearing, pilot shaft, and throwout bearing.

My jeep is hard to shift (going and out of gear hard). Plus when I shift into second gear and let the clutch out it falls on its face. just feels like the clutch is slipping plus I do go off road. I want to replace it with something that work good for off roading and DD use. I know about clutches for high performance cars just not for 4x4's

All stock for now!
Chad i think i get what you mean now let say you are driving with 50 miles and you are in 5th gear and slam on the gas.. does the engine start accelerating while speed stays the same? Pretty much its slipping a lot is what you are saying. Altough the clutch is slipping the hard shifting problems don't seem like worn clutch problems though.
If its falling on it face when accelerating at high RPM's then its a good possibility that its the fuel pump and has nothing to do with the clutch. But the whole shifting issue I coulnt tell you, except that it could be your shifter boot causing it to be hard to put in gear but it doesnt sound like thats the problem. "If you have a lift on your jeep." Honestly I would just go to a transmition shop and have them do a free check-up and find out what the problem is.
