Hi
any help will be greatly appreciated. I beleieve my Clutch went out last night. Left me stranded at 3am on the parkway. Crying or Very sad Lord what a nightmare. In anycase. I have a 1998 Cherokee XJ 2 door 2wd manual transmission. I want to get some advice on what type of clutch I should put in it and where i might get one at a good deal if possible. Im thinking of upgrading from stock but I dont want any chatter or shudder. Should I go with the luk pro gold or any other upgrade you might know. I beleive they call the upgrade a heavy duty clutch. I had another jeep 98 and I put a 3 stage in it and I was like puck style from ebay what a peiece of crap. I had the centerforce stage 2 and that did not seem bad at all. Ill take any advice on doing this Job. I just want somethinga little better i have a few upgrades performance. Or should I just go stock and if so what brand. All Help will be greatly aprpeciated. I have a lot of work to do any tips are greatly aprpeciated Smile

Sincerely
Mike

I've had Centerforce as well as other brands and the Centerforce worked great till I exceed the HP rating on it in another car.
