I'm having very noticable vibrations when I push the clutch in and let it out, it happens on the first 4" of clutch push in, then on the last 4" of letting the clutch out (same spot..).

Also, when the clutch is about 75% in and on the way out at the same spot, I have a tough/sticky spot to push through. Any ideas folks on what this could be? Maybe just normal wear, I just haven't noticed it before and I've got < 60K right now..

TIA

Shifts same as always... So I was wondering if it was the throw out bearing maybe, or something...

Does sound like a throw out bearing to me...is it common for a Jeep's clutch to last so long (60k+ miles)? Also, what aftermarket clutches are ya'll using, CenterForce?

Just questions I've meant to ask for awhile now.
