Hello, I'm new to the jeep world and to the forum, but this forum has been my guidance for the past month. Thank you guys.
Now my questions.
I'm in the process of replacing the clutch on my new project 89 4 cyl manual tranny. I want to replace the flywheel as well, but I can't find it. In all online catalogs the seems to skip my year for the flywheel.
So my question is. Does any year yj 4 cyl flywheel fits or I'm out of luck?
Please guys any input will do.
Thanks in advance

87-88 had a bunch if different ones.

89-90 should work.

I didn't replace mine I had it resurfaced even though it is not recommended. My ring gear looked great. Three years wheeling no issues.

When I get home I will look around and see what's up.

Maybe lack of demand.

Thanks for your input
From 87-90, the flywheel disappeared on every online catalog, they only sell flywheel ring gear.
I got a quote from a local machine shop to resurface it for $40, but if I'm paying more than 50% of the cost for a new one, I rather buy it new. My search continues

If it's not pitted, warped and blue, gouged, or rusted out (rare) just reuse it. Deglaze it with emery cloth really good and you will be fine.
