I have a new fork if you want it

part number # 16914.07

I would also suggest replacing the clip that holds the fork on the pivot ball

 I'd upgrade from the LUK OEM to the LUK Pro Gold, it's #05-901 for the Jeep 6cyl

 Again, whichever you go with though get an all metal throwout bearing to replace the one from the kit.
 The TO in the kit has a plastic body and will eventually break, LONG before the clutch goes bad....

Now I've read that was only used for easier installation purposes, is there more to it than that?

Wobble ratchet and shallow socket from up top. It may be a star fastener and not a standard 6 point bolt.

Or longvextension with a wobble joint from the botton.

mine broke so I just left it off after reading it was not very important. definitely adds the chance of the fork falling out of place when putting the trans back in

Like Terry said,  a short socket, long ass extensions and a breaker bar.
