My new Clutch

So i got a new clutch kit, slave and master cylinder from Luk. Dunno if any of you guys used the brand before but it's supposed to meet or exceed stock OE specs.

Driving a jeep with a new clutch is weird...feels so different and will take some time to get used to. Im used to the rough driving and now it feels so smooth.

I do feel a little play in the clutch pedal before i get some pressure. Is there a way to get the play out?

how much free play is the correct amount for the clutch pedal? none would be preferred but if that isn't preferable let me know.

You might still have a little air in the system. I don't think there is an adjustment for play on the clutch rod .
