Did you swap out the OEM thermostat with the RIPP 180*F T-stat? If so did you try going back to the OEM thermostat and seeing what happens after clearing the codes? Just a thought..

Just curious. Was your left cylinder head replaced due to a defective head? Wondering that's all. It sounds like you have a few issues going on.

60 down to second gear. Odds are the clutch disk was torn up, you probably scarred up the flywheel too. The transmission will have to be dropped to confirm. Most likely you'll end up replacing the...

I like to do that too, but only when the engine is fully warmed up, after about 20 minutes of highway driving. Compression braking with a manual transmission is good too, just don't over do it.

A flywheel from the dealer would be fine.

You can cut yours, but you'll need to know how much material is removed and shim the flywheel by that amount for best results. A lot of people don't do...

Centerforce makes a great clutch, I would however go with the Centerforce II. It is much better suited for a Wrangler than the Centerforce I is. In addition to the parts you're replacing I would also...

That's good, however keep in mind you can have a full clutch reservior and still have bad or moisture contaminated brake fluid in it. Although that is probably not the case here.
