LUK kit comes with a new pressure plate. You should always replace the pressure plate while your in there, the fingers that the throwout bearing push on are a wear item. If you only replace the friction plate and TB I guarantee you it won't take long before you push the TB through the pressure plate and destroy everything.

The LUK kit is fine for any Jeep application.

Hey guys, time is close to needing to replace the clutch in my 1997 jeep tj. I heard about a Luk full clutch replacement kit from pepboys. Its $600 for the kit and install. But some people have said i need to upgrade my pressure plate. I have 4 inch suspension lift and 33 inch tires, 2.5l 4 cylinder. I need yalls help. Any reviews on this kit? Or luk in general? Or kit suggestions. Im only 17 lol so this is more than what i know how to do on the thing.
