Update - Clutch exploded due to extreme heat / Clutch - Screeching noise.
I am editing this post instead of new post.
I have had bad luck with my 2008 sahara unl (90k miles). I had the gear popping issue which caused two clutch replacements and a new transmission. I was driving and suddenly heard a screeching noise that only happens when the clutch is engaged.
I am not sure if I should drive it to the shop or have it towed.

Reason: Different issue
I am assuming that you have a warranty on the clutch work. I would call the shop and ask them what they want you to do.

I do not consider myself a smartass. I point out the obvious, search for the truth, and speak fluent sarcasm. I am, by experience, an accomplished curmudgeon.
Thanks Moezer. Pretty close to mine. I am waiting for the dealer to get back to me. They will want to say it is a wear item, I want it covered on the powertrain.
Sounds like the same issue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4eDcWuUaDc
The dealer (after four days) said the clutch came apart and the metal was blue from the heat.
This same dealer replaced the clutch 20,000 miles ago. They say the clutch is a wear item unrelated to the transmission which is covered under the powertrain.
They don't know what could of caused it.
Please help, the clutch didn't wear down, it broke.
Moezer, is this still the same issue you had?
My problem at the time they just replaced the throw out bearing and said the clutch was fine but they changed it cuz they did the repair them self's push them a bit they should cover it since they replaced the first one
So a little humor... I just got back from the dealer. They gave me a whole bunch of reasons why a clutch just fails after 20k miles; towing a boat, getting stuck in the snow, driving in the suburbs, user habits...
They said the industry in general is moving away from manual transmissions for this very reason...
I called Chrysler and they think something is wrong and have escalated it.
Funny. I told the service dept on Wed to look at the push bearing. They laughed and said not to trust advice from the "internet". They called me this morning (Saturday) to say it was the push bearing.
