you can get a SPEC or ClutchMasters clutch, but from the research I have done when swapping the manual for the auto, they are not worth it unless you are putting heavy loads on the clutch (off roading, towing, etc.). The stock 4.0 (if that is the engine you have) clutch is a fairly strong clutch.

I would drop the transmission and make sure that your clutch isn't just shot...

Talk to [email protected] about it. I know he just got another member on here a aftermarket clutch for a pretty good price. He's in the vendors section here.

if you are towing along with the larger tires, have you regeared? if you haven't, then yes, you will wear your clutch out faster. I would consider regearing if you haven't...
