    JK General Discussion Forum
    We are having to replace our clutch in our 07 jku. Just replaced it last April, with a kevlar. We were told they were a better quality. So what is everyone's recommendation for a new clutch? And should we be looking for something else, that is making the clutch wear within a yr and a half.
