Yeah, I did mine myself. Like I said before, it's not difficult. It's just time consuming and kind of tricky to get the transmission back in where it's supposed to be. Took me about 8 hours on a saturday. I don't have a transmission jack, so I used a forklift

87 1987 Jeep Wrangler Clutch Kit - Clutch - LUK, Sachs, Valeo - PartsGeek

Everything you need will be in the box. Slave cylinder IS included. Not bad pricing, depending on your engine, you're looking at about $120 bucks, give or take, with FREE shipping!! Very good quality parts. I called a few transmission shops around town before I ordered mine and asked them what parts they use for clutch replacements. All 3 shops told me when they order the kits, they go with Luk kits..

Good luck, it's a pain in the ass. Not terribly difficult, just annoying, and time consuming. Took me almost 8 hours from start to finish on mine.
