did it start immediately after the install, or did it progressively get worse?

When mine did that, it was in the opposite direction. Turned out to be the Master Cylinder. I may have misunderstood you though

it progressively got worse, and at times it will be close to perfect again, thats EXACTLY what i thought it was, and i really hope it is the master cylinder, because i dont wanna pull the tranny again!! did it completely take care of the problem

Sounds like a master or slave cyl. issue. Try bleeding the system first. Air in the line can do funny things.
Any signs of leakage? Look on the firewall in side the cab (master) and on the ground under the flywheel (slave).

When you press and hold the clutch pedal down, does it maintain good pedal pressure or does it slowly bleed off? If it bleeds off you have a seal issue in either your master or slave cylinder.

I had an 89 XJ (2.5L, 5spd) with simular issues. Ended up replacing both the master and slave...ended up being the internal slave cylinder of coarse.

Hope this helps.
