clutch replacement question

So I am using 4x4xplor page as a go by. It looks like he just replaced his pressure plate and reused his flywheel. I have a new Luk clutch kit with all the piece. Seems all I have to di unbolt one take it off put the other on align and redock and bolt the housing back on. I am sorry for stupid questions when things seem obvious,I am just very cautious.

That's pretty much it with a couple of more steps. It's a very good idea to swing by a dealer and pick up a clutch return spring. They are more of a clip than a spring, and many times they are rusty and break when you remove the release arm to install the new throw out bearing. They are around $5 at the dealer (picture below) If it breaks and the dealer isn't open when you're doing it...you're stuck. The other thing is make sure you closely check the flywheel for heat checking (especially if your clutch has been slipping or chattering when you release it). If it is severely heat checked, replace it. (Never have a Jeep flywheel machined). If not just sand it down with a little 80 grit emery or sand paper.

Please tell me I dont need this on a 4.0 engine 2003 wrangler.
I didnt see it on any of the exploded views nor did I see anything like it when I removed the housing.

I think I hooked up my 4x4 linkage wrong, although it seems it could only go one way.

That's your pilot bearing which is recessed into the center of your flywheel. The end of your trans shaft rides on that. I hope your old one is still in good shape if it's all re-installed.

I didn't notice any damage to it. The only thing that was shredded was the throw out bearing.
