    I put in a heavy duty clutch from NAPA.
    the through out bearing went bad in 13 months.
    so I put in a Jeep dealer clutch, WOW much less peddle pressure (easier on the knee) and about 20% less disk area than the NAPA clutch. I plowed for years on the original clutch, do I need the heavy duty?

    I think it depends more on who drives the jeep.
    Plowmeister has proven that a stock clutch, when driven by the owner, will last for years.
    For me , with employees doing the driving, stock is useless and a NAPA unit failed within a month. Instead I get HD "plowing" clutches from a local clutch manufacturer, they usually
    last 2-3 seasons.
