How difficult is it to replace a clutch in a 98 TJ. My son and I are planning to do the job but not sure what all is involved. Can anyone give us some advice? Maybe a site where we can get some tips or instructions?

I changed the text size after 4 points comment. Did not realize how big it was. Thanks for the link. This will come in use.

Any advice on brand of clutch? My sons jeep is on a four inch lift with 33's and well basically he drives the hell out of it and I really dont want to do this again.

I'd say get him an automatic.. lol honestly.. if you drive it like crap.. you can burn up any brand NEW clutch in just few minutes.

I was being a smartass, sorry. From what I understand an OEM replacement would be the best bet. If you search back there's been a clutch thread within the last couple of days and some brand recommendations.

Oh your comment did bug me....I thought it was funny....then I saw how big I made the text and DAMN...HAHA....anyways he has a bad habit of thinking he is driving a sports car and tries to spin his big 33's....well I think after he has had to pay for a new rear axle and now a clutch he better have learned a lesson otherwise I take back the jeep and put his ass in a honda civic....

But thanks everyone for your advice. I will probably just go back with OEM....I had read some info on the performance clutches and didn't know.
