After about 20min drive, AC clutch kicks out and doesnt kick back on unless i turn AC off and back on in 10min.

Replaced relay no dice

Is air gap on the clutch adjustable?

Have you checked the refrigerant pressure? I had a similar issue and it was a bad txv and the pressure were the give away. Evap coil would freeze up after 20 minutes or so and then after leaving off you could turn on and get cool air again. Not saying that's your issue, but I would start with a pressure check.

Thanks i will check it

I had no front AC a while back, about a year, and it was the front misting valve that was bad. Replaced, all good since

I can see the gap clearly on the clutch, it made me think that it might be too broad for electromagnet to pull it in

I mentioned the pressure first thinking perhaps one of the sensors is tripping and not letting the compressor engage. You might want to run the AC self diagnose in the repair manual.
