Luk clutch vs. Luk Gold Pro

These two clutch kits are $100 apart. Is the Pro Gold worth the money? Why?

For a 1993 YJ kit including a new slave.

$152 for standard
$174 for Gold

Just average prices I found on the internet, may want to shop around some if there is that much of a difference.

The gold version has a higher torque capacity and keeps a higher clamp load over a longer period of time than a normal clutch.

If you're pretty aggressive off-road, it's worth it to buy the gold version. I got mine from http://www.dialaclutch.com -- great service and decent prices.

Well, I bought the regular one from dial a clutch. I never off road, just highway and the occasional traffic jam. Its not my daily driver anyway, just a fun weekend warrior for heading to the beach and/or enjoying the sunny weather. I think the standard OEM will work fine for many years of that type of driving.
