Clutch Slipping

My clutch would slip in my 1995 Wrangler 2.5L on 36s and 4.88s when I would be on big rocks. I removed my clutch everything looks good no hot spots and the clutch has a good amount of material. Any ideas from what I read the performance clutches are a waste.

Resurface the flywheel and not smooth like a brake rotor it should be textured. I am not a machinist but there is a difference. If the pressure plate is good I would suspect maybe the little clutch is just not up to the task.

^^^ this
sort of picture the way a fresh hone looks on a cylinder wall... it's not a polished smooth, but a cross-hatch pattern

brings back funny memories.... my grandfather (RIP) was a mechanic all his life - top notch, could set timing to within half-degree just by sound and feel. could usually diagnose a problem before even opening the hood.

anyway, when he would do a clutch replacement, while the trans was out, he would start the engine, and get under the car with just a piece of 150 grit emery paper and a lit lucky strike hanging from his teeth and resurface the flywheel by hand with the engine running, using the engine as sort of a lathe... the man was nuts but could run circles around most other mechanics who had twice the diagnostic equipment & machinery.

Performance clutches are a waste unless your putting BIG HP though it. Everyone else has stated the main points.

89 YJ.. My first jeep and I won't let it go. ▀||||▀

Current Project: None... I disgust myself.
