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 have 249K miles on my '07 and was thinking it might be time to replace the clutch. Took it to my mechanic and he said "no way it needs replacing" I learned 2 things - I have a very honest mechanic and I'm easier than most people on a clutch. The latter probably due to the fact that I have always owned a MT vehicle in the 58 years I've been a licensed driver. Yeah - I'm old. But I love my FJ - it's my daily driver and also gets me up some rough roads to satisfy my mountain climbing addiction. My skid plates aren't exactly virgin...
