Slave or pressure plate?

Since day 1 of me owning the jeep i have noticed that going from a stop to start it has a shutter to it. It does not grind going into gears and slides in smooth (thats what she said). It seems that the clutch is engaging but not until the pedal is almost released the whole way if that makes sense?
I haven't had the chance to check the master due to being sick but i do know there are no leaks that i have noticed lately.
Any suggestions or input?

Good chance the clutch is worn out if it engages at the 'top'

The shudder could be from the worn out disk / flywheel not perfectly smooth anymore, or from oil on the disk.

If the system needed bleeding, you would have the opposite problem - clutch would want to be always engaged and just barely disengaging down low or after pumping the pedal.

Just to bump it back to the top, Does anyone feel that some clutches are just junk and some are better than others?

luk is a good choice, from what I've read they made the factory clutch. check rock auto for a great price.
