I've got a 95 wrangler with the AX-5 who makes a good clutch that will last a long time, or better than stock, and does anyone know how long the factory clutch lasts with not beating on them alot?
thanks

Factory Jeep clutches can last well over 100k miles if not abused. Most factory clutches are made by F&S, LUK, or Valeo. Most aftermarket new clutch kits are made by the same companies. The kits run in the $150 range on average at the local parts houses.

People on this list seem to like the Luk clutches.
Centerforce is a good clutch but need High RPM to work it's best.

My friend runs a Luk in his mudzilla of a '76 Cherokee. I run a Centerforce II in mine. The Centerforce grips better the more you push the throttle down, and has a very light clutch pedal. For stock applications, Luk is THE way to go. Once you've got a bigger carb, camshaft, headers, and exhuast- THEN you may want to get a Centerforce II.

The reason the Centerforce has such a light pedal is it works centrifugally (spelling). There is absolutely no need for a clutch of that design unless you are mud bogging or desert racing. For most 4by applications it is a waste of money, the Centerforce is not cheap.
