I wouldn't be surprised at all. I've seen too much of it over the years.

There are two problems with Wrenchtwister13's post:
The biggest problem is that the FSM specifically says to NOT machine the flywheel. The surface has a domed shape which machining will cut off. There have been several people around here that have machined the flywheel and claim to have no problems. However, there are also several folks that have reported problems with the clutch not engaging smoothly after machining the flywheel. The fact that you don't machine the TJ flywheel had already been mentioned in previous posts.

The most obvious problem with his post is that the OP stated that he had installed a new flywheel. What would be the point of machining a new flywheel?

Don't know. I haven't worked a YJ clutch. But they seem to use the same flywheel so I'd assume you shouldn't turn the YJ flywheel either.

As a level 4 Jeep Driveline tech I feel the need to chime in on this one. First off the NTH (noise vibration and harshness) sounds like one of 3 possible issues. First check the trans mount for tears or a soft/squishy feel to the rubber...if the rubber is not "hard" replace the mount. Jack the rear end up on the pumpkin and set a jackstand on each axle tube and support the vehicle on the stands...spin the drive shaft and see if it binds...if it does you need to install a SYE and CV shaft ...if it doesn't bind then your input bearing is bad in trans. Check the driveline for binding and/or severe driveline angles.
