93 YJ clutch question

I have a 93 YJ. I have heard different things about the 93 having a hydralic clutch master and slave cylinder. I know of the existance of the Master cylinder. I have heard that there is a slave cylinder and it is encased in the transfer case. I cannot find any information that supports this though. If anyone knows of a link or personal information, please advise.
Thank you.

On your particular Jeep, you basically have an internal slave cylinder. And it is located inside your bellhousing. This makes your replacement parts sorta expensive and the work a pain since you have to drop the tranny anytime you need to replace it. One more year later and you would have had an external slave cylinder. Cheaper and much easier to replace.

I'm having the clutch replaced on my YJ today. At a dealer no less, so you know I'm getting hosed on the price...

Anyhow, osburn is correct about the slave cylinder location. Royal PITA, which is why I'm letting someone else skin their knuckles... One item of correction however, it seems the '94s were a "transition year." Mine was built with the slave inside the bell housing, but with the ABS rear axle (part number fun - woo hoo! ). Just thought I'd share. Cheers!

Can the bell housing off of a newer YJ be swapped in to move the slave to the outside? Then just replace the fork and arm assemply. Seems like it would be a nice upgrade.

I know for a fact it can be done, as I have seen a couple rigs with this mod. I don't know if it was a kit or a custom fab though.
