time to replace clutch & throwout bearing

2012 MT. Looking to replace my clutch as previous owner had worn it out by 115,000 miles. I have no throw out bearing noise, but the clutch is weak and slipping. Looking for recommendations on clutches/pressure pate kits, and throw out bearings. URD is out of their stage 2 clutches, wondering if anyone has opinions on Spec stage 1 or 2. I am using the vehicle almost exclusively on road, However, I don't mind a heavier clutch. I'd like to have my flywheel resurfaced unless ya'll recommend going new. Any links to good threads on this would be appreciated. Any links to Throw out bearing kits that are best would be appreciated. Any advice at all on choosing parts appreciated. Thanks.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with OEM parts. My FJ (w/243,000) is getting the clutch replaced with OEM parts this month because I find the whistle from the throwout bearing has gotten annoying. It’s original and has lasted this long, what’s to complain about? Maybe I’m not as hard on the clutch as others?
I'm at 195k on the factory clutch and have been extremely hard on it.
