Clutch problem in the YJ had been coming and going for about a month. I tried to make it last until I was ready to do the engine swap. One day on the way to work, I was really wondering if I was going to make it. I was able to maintain highway speed as long as I accelerated easily not pushing the gas too hard. Each time the gas was pressed too hard the tach would raise yet the Jeep didn't speed up. Clutch totally slipping! I made it too work, then made a couple of phone calls to get the kit ordered. I babied it on the way home from Nashville.
