This one has the notorious sr4 manual 4 speed. It does have some clutch chatter especially one the car has warmed up, so I do suspect somthings going on with that as well.

Clutch springs popped out will give you a REAL bad vibe! I see a LOT of that (just had a guy with a 7.3 diesel complaining. Turned out someone borrowed his truck and dropped the clutch numerous times till the hub of the discs were cracked!)
AMC/Jeep gauges are for amusement only. Any correlation between them and reality is purely coincidental!

Ok... got a hand full of suggestions
1: Check the pilot bearing or throw out bearing or both
2: (Long shot) Main bearing in the transmission

Start at the pilot bearing and go back

Ingenuity through stupidity, Do something stupid and through Ingenuity you will find a way out of it.
