I know this is asking a lot... from a photo...
Is there anything you guys see on this picture that would send me to Autozone tomorrow to get a new flywheel ($68) as I try to get my Jeep back on the road before the drive-in opens (not gonna happen I am sure, but I have GOALS)?

Personally, for $68 I would just replace it... as long as it isn't glazed it should be fine. I've heard of people using light sand paper to clean them a bit. Don't have it machined

It looks fine to me. I personally would clean it up with Simple Green and bolt it into place after lightly sanding any glaze present on its surface with Emory cloth or fine sandpaper.

Thanks for the input! I got the new one and rear main seal.
I cannot find any info on how deep to set the pilot bearing? Flush with the back edge of flywheel? even with transmission-side taper? split the difference?
The details I get caught up on!!

I've never replaced the pilot brng on a Jeep, so don't know for sure but the others I've done were seated all the way in and up against the back of the crank.

Flush with the end of the crank shaft. You can use the clutch alignment tool to seat the bearing.
