Clutch replaced!!

Well,check this pic out first,this was the saturday morning when we packed everything up and ready to start the engine to WHIPSAW.
But the clutch was gone suddenly,can you feel me ?




After coming back from princeton,we found there was a little puddle of brake oil under the jeep.The brake oil keep dripping out when i push the clutch pedal,things were getting simple and easy.
It is a slave cylinder leak!
But anyway,i cant suffer all kind of noise from throw out bearing,pressure plate,compress springs anymore,i decide to change the whole clutch kit.
Did lots reserch on centerforce and SPEC,but i chosed LUK finally,there are lots goodthings about CF and SPEC,but also lots compliant about them.Play safe,there will be nothing wrong go with the original factory brand LUK.

These are my mud covered transmission,throwout bearing,and my plate and disc!!




brand new one!


Now the jeep clutch feels like day1 driven outta dealer ship.

OK ,next on the 2b fixed list is the winch!

Glad you got that squared away Jason! Now avoid using your clutch in the mud bogs you seem to frequent.

Definitely no more clutch in mud!
Well,I knew that years ago,but just can't help some times make mistakes.

The fly wheel looks good still,actually I didnt burn the clutch too much.And both disk and flywheel looks really good,no mud on there!

Nice work there Shayu. I'll be needing to do this soon myself, how long did it take to put the new clutch in? I was quoted 1200$ by a local shop for this, would rather do it myself and save the $$$ if it's not that hard.

Geoge,good to see you here!It took 3 of us 5 hrs to replace the whole kit even with a mechanic friend's help. it's not a ez job especially you never did that before ,so I guess $500 labor will be resonable for experienced guy who may finish in 5 hrs. The luk clutch is cheap on eBay like $200ish,Part number 01-046 from what I remember.Jk and 03/04 liberty share the same clutch tho.
Good luck!Bro!
