New flywheels are rarely needed and are not part of a normal clutch job. Only replace it if it is physically damaged, there's no need to spend that kind of $$$ just because. Go for a Luk clutch kit, they hold up to nearly anything you can throw at it, and they're usually good to past 200k miles... early <100k mile failures are extremely rare.
Last comment, per the Mopar Factory Service Manual, don't have the existing flywheel turned or machined either. It has a slight dome shape on its surface that would be removed by having it resurfaced... yes I know that's a common part of most clutch jobs but don't do it where a TJ is concerned. At the most, use a piece of emory cloth or mild sandpaper to remove any glazing that may be on the flywheel's surface.
When you have a choice, buy American made.
