I have to replace my slave cyl this coming weekend. Any tips or tricks I need to be aware of? Is it difficult to bleed?

It's a pain to bleed. The best is to park the Jeep on an incline, rear up, overnight.

I think I unbolted it, opened up the bleeder and pushed the pushrod in all the way by hand and then closed the bleeder and reinstalled it. That gave it enough pressure at the pedal to bleed the rest out like you would bleed brakes.

I also compressed the SC before install. As the rod slowly worked its way back out it pulled in fluid accomplishing a pre-bleed if you may. I can see where leaving it over night would work. I chose to drive around, exercising the clutch and that got me going a lot quicker
