That won't last long.... Then you will be doing a clutch job :smokin:
I hope that can wait a couple months, I travel a lot so I really don't drive it that much plus when I'm home I use the Jeep a lot. This really is my tow rig so as long as I can baby it and still tow my TJ I'll be ok... for a little while at least. :D

Look into Luk and Southbend when you upgrade.

-ben
I would not buy a luk clutch. Ive twisted the centers out of 2 of them already. I didnt have the money for a southbend so I bought a sachs instead. It was actually cheaper than the luk but Ive already got more miles out of it than both luks put togather. The luk has four little tabs they bend over to hold the center plates togather, needless to say they shear easy. The sachs that most would consider to be less quality has 6 large rivits holding it togather.

I've got a Southbend dual disk ceramic Works really good, not cheap. its actually the SBC 3600DD 6CB. I;ll have to see if it holds the next level of power coming, maybe 1 more upgrade in my future.

Now I can only assume you have the NV4500 in there. When a clutch is due for you, I would recommend upgrading the input shaft to 1 3/8" and corresponding pilot bearing. Then you can run a 13" clutch. Stocker is 1 1/4" input and 12 1/4" clutch.
