What Clutch to get

Ok so after staying up all night researching it seems the clutch issue i am having is common (on the forums) for the JK and there was a TSB issued for it. It might also be the slave cylinder since the clutch pressure goes in and out. So instead of getting the dealership to install a new OEM clutch my research indicates it is time to upgrade as the OEM is good for 30k once you have the issue (and throwout bearing abotu 10K).

So how do i know what brand to go with? LUK, CENTERFORCE, POLYPERFORMANCE? Do i get a +2 or a +3....and i know i need one with all the parts (especially the throwout bearing).

I don't know whose kits include what, but the Spec 2+ sounds like a popular choice. Unfortunately no matter what you go with, you have to use a stock Mopar TOB.

If it's a slave cylinder problem the clutch doesn't get removed nor does the trans. Just not sure if you were planning on changing it because you thought it was getting removed.

but the master is inside the trans right? if so i will probably try the slave first...then if it isnt that save up to teardown the trans, replace the master and do a new clutch since it is apart
