    Just as I was turning into my own drive way, I started getting a loud squeal as I disengaged the clutch. By the time I got the Jeep parked in its regular parking place, I was getting some smoke (small amount) and a burning smell. With the clutch fully engaged and out of gear, no noise and everything seems normal. What do I have going on? I have a sneaky suspicion that I don't want to think about. I did check the brake fluid level and all is good there.

    That was/is the one thing that I didn't want to think about. Any ideas about how difficult that is to change in the driveway?

    It shouldn't be any more difficult than changing the clutch.

    If the diagnosis is correct....while your in there might as well replace the clutch, pressure plate, throwout etc. A complete LuK clutch kit includes these parts.

    Have resigned myself to the fact that there is a new clutch in my not too distant future and began by trying to educate myself to whats available out there in terms of parts or kits. Seems there are many with a wide range of pricing. Any recommendations from the board?

    LUK is the best for non-race applications. and one of the least expensive.

    We have had a ton of good experience in LUK clutches. I used one in my YJ for years and never had any real complaints. If you have a 2.5 it is a good idea to go ahead and replace the rear main while you have the tranny out as the 2.5 uses a one piece rear main.

    Thanks for the heads up Jeff. I assume that you are referring the the engine rear main!

    Thanks - Jeepjoc
