My clutch was replaced at 24k on my 2018 JLUR by the dealer free of charge. It was a bit of a goat rope and I got Jeep Wave involved. It took some negotiating and persistence but in the end FCA reimbursed me for one month’s car payment and as stated I paid nothing for the clutch including a new pedal assembly. It was a satisfactory end to a frustrating situation. I wish you luck with your clutch woes- they seem to be more common than they should be.

Breaks my cold, dead heart to read this

Somewhere, Ford employee's are reading this to avoid the same mistake with the Bronco.

Hopefully by the time I'm ready to buy either vehicle, this'll be resolved

Thanks. This issue should be covered under under warranty, though. I am curious, however, as to what’s causing the problem. That 4-wheel shift lever has been incredibly stiff since the vehicle was new. Never had that problem with the other 4 Wranglers.
Keep your receipts, FCA listed a recall for this. Look like you were lucky since others have experienced total loss.

See if your VIN is listed here: https://www.mopar.com/en-us/my-vehicle/recalls/search.html

That’s terrible. I had two manual transmission Xterras and they both performed flawlessly. Second one had 130k and was still really strong when I traded it in.

Well this sucks. I figured something was wrong because mine has been pretty rough lately and I was getting concerned. Had my TJ for 10 years on the same clutch, JK for 11 as well with no problems. Something is up with this one and in some ways it's nice to see it confirmed. Hopefully the "fix" doesn't take too long to figure out.
