The standard one is all you need for your Jeep.The Gold won't last longer or make any difference for you.
p.s. Aren't you really in FredVegasburg Va.

Yep go for the standard Luk clutch which can easily make it past 200K miles. Their Pro Gold is really meant more for trucks that also use the AX-15 and it can be noisier without any real benefit over the standard clutch when installed into a Wrangler.

Get this Luk kit for $159 plus shipping... http://www.dial-a-clutch.com/Clutch_Kit_p/14322.htm. It includes the clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and pilot shaft for that price.

And that $119 included what, just the clutch disk itself? The $159 from www.dialaclutch.com includes the clutch disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing, pilot bearing, and pilot shaft.

Check the throwout bearing and make sure it isn't plastic. I got the standard and it was plastic. I purchased a metal one and chucked the plastic one.
