Correct. IIRC, Centerforce doesn't make a clutch (yet) for the 2012 and newer JKs. Seems like the only choice at this time is OEM.

DWolfpackD09 I can work with 650, thanks a lot!

jkjeeper06 Yeah. Definitely don't go to the dealer for that kind of work. Go to a specialty transmission shop. I was quoted $650 for a small town transmission shop to put a new stock clutch in. It'll cost a bit more to do a centerforce with a better throw out bearing, but it'll be worth it

DWolfpackD09 Thanks for the tips guys... Actually I was dragging some boulders around the yard, re landscaping... Got to one that was a little too heavy and then good bye clutch. I haven't had clutches done before so I'll order a good one and then bring it to a shop to have it installed or do ya think I'd be better bringing it to a dealer to have it done? I'm driving a rental so time is of the essence unfortunately. And no, didn't have it in 4wdL.... Won't make that mistake again. Dealer quoted me 1000 for standard clutch and install. I feel like that's a little high.

It's still the same nsg370 transmission they used since 04. Is the flywheel potentially being different the limiting factor here? I was just assuming you could use the same clutch from earlier JK's

jkjeeper06 Here is a good write up with all of the parts described. You don't have to do it yourself, but it gives you a good idea of what needs to be done

jkjeeper06 I gotta ask how. Did you try to pull someone out when not in 4 low? Or were you wheeling with your manual not in 4 low?

Center force dual friction clutches seem like a great performance clutch to go to. That's my plan at least when my clutch goes out on me. Idk if you've had clutches done before but you may be pleasantly surprised by the price. The quote I got was 60% of the cost of my old audis clutch

Choosing a new clutch

Hi all,
Just burnt through my new 2013 2 door wrangler sport clutch and am looking to have it replaced (don't ask how lol).
Jeep warranty covers clutch up to 12,000 miles, my jeeps at 13,000 so they will not cover anything (even after contacting Chrysler directly and having a fit). Because I have a 2.5inch lift kit with 33" wheels I was leaning towards getting a performance clutch. Do any of ya'll have any suggestions on a good 6 speed clutch to buy. Info would be much appreciated!
