What Clutch for the CJ?

I am planning to start an engine swap on my CJ, 258 to 360. While I am at it I figure I might as well change the clutch out.

Know I am wondering what clutch to go with.

Centerforce, Hays, Kragen, 4WD Hardware stock replacment??

Centerforce seems expensive, Hays seem to be priced fairly, Kragen has a lifetime warranty, but if I have to swap out the clutch every month is it any good?

What do you think?

I have a Hays in my 258/T5 combo. I like it. It's a little stiff, but you get used to it pretty quickly. It clamps tight, but you can feather it if need be.

Another option, which seems to be a board favorite around here, is Luk.

in my humble opinion, Luk makes the best clutch. Very grabby and not too stiff, and priced very reasonably. I know Pep Boys carries this brand, and there are a number of mail-order places as well.

Do a search on this subject. General consensus over the years has been LUK. I've been using them for a long time, best there is IMO.
