Shudder when wet

So I replaced my clutch because it was shuddering/slipping badly when it was wet outside...I mean BAD! Barley get it into gear without stalling and shuddering really badly between shifts....all would be normal when warm/not wet.
Now that I have a new clutch in (professionally installed) it still does this A LITTLE BIT...like 5% of what it once was.
What could this be still?

All 3 of my stock clutches did this as well as my centerforce clutch that's in there now. It doesn't do it often though it does happen.

I have no idea what it is, neither do the Jeep mechanics or my cousin who is also a mechanic.

Ours does this sometimes too, especially if I have the wheel cut sharply and even while giving it gas. We just got used to it I guess so we don't really think much about it.

You are a load that should have been swallowed, but someone as bitter as you are probably would have been spat out. Ahh Dancin Dan
