95 YJ Clutch issue??

First post here. I've been lurking for quite some time. Anyhow, I bought a 95 YJ several months back and in true jeep spirit it likes to get a new part every few weeks.

For about a week now I have been having what I think is a clutch issue. The jeep runs great as long as it is not under any load. As soon as you shift (AX-5) and begin to accelerate it starts to shudder and get "jumpy". It's as if the clutch is sticking perhaps and not allowing the transmission to fully engage. Kind of like it's only allowing power to the wheels every other revolution or something. As soon as you press the clutch again the engine revs up just fine and acts normal. If I really ease the clutch in and out I can avoid it but for normal shifts the problem occurs. Is this a master/slave cylinder issue or internal clutch mechanism?

One possible cause may be motor mounts and its an easy check. With the hood up and trans in neutral, gun the engine (with the throttle linkage) and see if the mounts can resist the torque.

Not sure if helps but I have a 95 wrangler 2.5l with 100k miles and my motor mounts were shot.. I replaced both motor mounts and my Tranny mount and found out my drivetrain had shifted back almost two inches.. smoothed some of my shifting problems out but seemed to cause an issue with my throwout or something clutch related..

like posted above check that the motor mounts are not shot. if they check out then the "chatter" is due to the clutch needing attention. can be crud on the flywheel or most likely worn out clutch,probaly both. if you end up replacing the clutch need to resurface the flywheel also.
