Good golly, that has to be the understatement of the century! Welcome to CJ land! hahaha. Seriously, owning a CJ will own you, $$ wise, time and frustration. But it's all worth it when u go out on the trail and do better than before. Upgrades and repairs and regular maintenance are a fact of CJ life.
i have the mechanical clutch and added the heim joint replacement kit, junking most of the OEM stuff. i think it was speed shops.com or something like that-- under $60 and worth every penny.
No more binding up in flexy situations and no more jamnut popping and dropping out of place when u need ur clutch the most.
I originally bought all the hydro conversion kit from 4wd.com, but after adding the navajo brake booster from harold off, the clutch master cyl will not fit. so if anyone cares, i'll unload the entire NIB kit for cheap!
anyway, look into the heim joint replacement kit-- u'll be glad u did now, not later when the clutch rod finally wears thru (and it will over time) and ur SOL out on the trail.
