Kinda excited to work on the heep tomorrow. Haven't driven it in over two weeks now! Got the shop to myself and hope the install goes well so I can take advantage to check a few other things out while I have it on the lift. Nothing exciting for pics, but I'll probably take some pics cause, well, why not!

Install went well. Pretty routine. Toughest part was trying to snake that critter down to the bell housing without damaging the line.


Here's the new cluster....I mean clutch master...

Had to remove the line from these two clips...


Removed broken linkage...



Out goes the old clutch master/slave....



Back in with the new....

Now that the Jeep's back to DD duty, I've been tossing around ideas for a short term list of what's next. This is what I've come up with, not neccessarily in this order...
1. Currie front upper CA's
2. short throw shifter for 5 speed.(B&M I think)
3. Novak TC Shift linkage
4. tires (32X11.50X15's) Still undecided on what style or brand. Followed up with install of new wheels that are collecting dust right now.
5. BL/MML

My goal is to end up on 33's with a TT and full under armor, but that will be way down the road. I'll run the 32's till I wear them out and by then, hopefully, will have the above list installed and ready for the next stage. Will probably keep the lift as it is now and upgrade shocks/springs if the OME's wear out. Thoughts welcome.

35's on 3.73's aren't as bad as one might think. It isn't the greatest by any means but very doable.

Bob why would you waste money on 32's? Just make your next jump from 31s to 33s when your ready and call it a day. 32s are worthless

Yep, I don't use 5th but other than that it has enough power to cruise 70 on the freeway and keep me from getting ran over hitting on ramps. It'll get you by til you can regear.

My clutch on my 2003 TJR did the same thing back in 2005. Labor to have replaced and cost of the part got close to $500... Sheesh! I have not seen anyone post this problem on a thread but my concern is having to replace that stupid cheap gizmo every so many years. Fingers are crossed.

I knew I'd get crap for the 32 comment! LOL! I would gladly go straight to 33's, but it's gonna be a long time before I'll be able to do gears. Not sure I wanna live with a slug for that long. I was looking at the specs on one particular brand of tire. on tire weight, a 32X11.50X15 was 4lbs heavier than my 31's. A 33X12.50X15 is 11lbs heavier. I've got till summer to think about it.

I don't think it's a common problem. Things break. I've been pretty lucky so far with the heep. Got close to 100k on it, and this is the first major breakage so far (knocks on wood)! Hopefully it doesn't go downhill from here!
