Re: clutch problem. please help!

What kind of wheeling do you do, rock or mud/sand? Last time I buried in the mud, the wheeles churned up so much silt, that when it came in contact with the pressureplate (on a 4.5" lift and 35" tires [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] ) the mud dried up to a good hard (read pottery) surround that wouldn't let the pressure plate put full pressure on the friction plate / flywheel. I've also seen basically brand new clutches burn through after some hardcore sand trips... just tore a stock clutch plate down to nothing. As for the fork being off the ball, not much, mine does it routienly... I wouldn't think its the best situation, but hey, its a jeep. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Somebody else could probably better explain all this tho.
