  • For 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L TJ Models
Don't Skimp. Upgrading your rig with a new lift, beefy tires or re-gearing is the easy way to take on new trails and gain a new aggressive look. What you may not realize, is each of those upgrades will increase the torque load on your Wrangler's drivetrain. Your OE clutch could experience premature wear or burn out, especially under extreme heat and stress while off-roading, resulting in costly repairs. The Exedy Stage 1 Clutch Kit is an easy way to improve torque management after modding without sacrificing the OE feel of your clutch. This direct replacement is perfect for daily drivers, as well as the weekend warrior who spends most of the week on the street or highway.

Extreme Construction. This Stage 1 Clutch Kit includes an ultra-fiber organic disc crafted from exclusive friction materials to resist slippage and burst for maximum performance. The disc is equipped with Marcel springs in the center to minimize shock and stress on your TJ's drivetrain for impressive torque management while ensuring smooth engagement.  The heavy duty, hardened clutch cover boasts over a 25% increase in clamp load, providing increased durability and power management without compromising the drivability or OE feel of your Jeep.

Installation & Warranty. Due to the intensive nature of clutch replacement we recommend seeking a certified mechanic for a reliable and safe installation. This kit includes a clutch disc and cover, as well as a pilot bearing, throwout bearing and  the adjustment tool necessary for installation. To ensure quality craftsmanship Exedy covers their Stage 1 Clutch with a 60 day limited warranty, some exclusions apply, please see manufacturer for complete details.

Application. The Exedy Stage 1 clutch is designed for installation on 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ 4.0L models equipped with either the AX-15, NV3550 or NSG370 manual transmission.

    Very nice, responsive clutch. Been off-roading with it and it still works great, a wonderful improvement over the stock unit. I did, however, replace the plastic sleeved throwout bearing with a medal sleeved throwout bearing. Mechanic who did the install stated that there were no issues.
