Your tall gears and larger tires are putting a big load on that clutch. You might talk to one of the clutch manufactures on CF about an upgrade. I don't think another factory clutch will last if you did get it warrantied.Truck just turned 16k., 3.42 gears, 35's and no mods. Anyone else experiencing this? I have only towed 6,000lb truck less than 100 miles and I don't drive aggressive.
Dealer will not warrenty new clutch.
Yeah you get used to it and the clutch gets smoother after a while. I have just under 1500 miles on my 3250 and its much smoother than when it was brand new. I love the clutch, it can be noisy at times but it's the nature of the beast.I am not too worried about the noise. I am more concerned with the shifting smoothness. I drove a 01' with a South Bend DD and it was a little stubborn to shift. But I guess it is something that you get used to.
