I'm sure most of you heard of what happened to me this weekend, so I'm just wondering if God forbid I have to replace my clutch do you guys think it's worth it to put in maybe a performance clutch or something along those lines? Or just keep it stock and just replace it Not too sure how to go about it

Hi buddy,

I have no experience in this field. But my gut says, that a stock clutch will be more than adequate for our slower speed activities. Banging and bashing hi performance clutches is more for racing. Also us wheelers are more likely to wreck a clutch due to contamination in dirty water than we are to burn one out.

Just my humble, uneducated opinion
cheers
Dave G

I think it was caged that had put a centerforce clutch in his Jeep and liked it. I have put in stock ones only

I was just thinking if there was a reinforced kind of clutch I can put in that prevents damage when I suck in dirt. I remember talking to jim about a clutch that he put in but I don't recall what it was.

I don't think a performance clutch would help when sucking dirt in as they still work the same as a stock clutch. I think a performance clutch gives you stronger engagement and better pedal feel

So worth my money just to replace it with an oem part? That sounds fair

yep. i put a centerforce III in my 99 tj and just a regular centerforce in neens 97 tj.

what a difference in how much pressure you need just to hold the clutch in. comes in handy when you are crawling on the rocks.
neens leg used to shake with the stock clutch. now it's like warm butta.

I am booked and I figured since I'm still a beginner I don't want this happening again to a more expensive clutch so I went with an aftermarket clutch that the shop uses, my sure of the name but he says it's better than stock

Fair enough, does it feel good and work well?
I'm always an automatic enthusiast.
What about other manual shifters out there?, what are your experiences?, how can junk in the clutch while submerged be avoided?? I remember Baloo lost a clutch to the mud monkeys creeping in while water crossing.
What can be done to water proof or protect??
Lets hear some opionions and guidance.

I actually haven't picked up the jeep yet but I'll keep ya posted when I do. And honestly from what I've heard there's not much to prevent it except for proper driving techniques

you never want to depress the clutch pedal while submerged in water. many have blown their clutch trying.
first thing to do with a stick and water crossings is to pull the clutch start fuse or some jeeps have a wire connector on the clutch pedal you need to pull and relocate to a dummy bracket under the dash.
this is so you can shut the jeep off if you lose momentum under water, then simply leave in low gear and start your motor. this will drive you out of the hole on your starter motor till the jeep starts up again.

i've done it many times. works great. but if you are actually stuck, you will need a tug or winch or try it in reverse.
