well I got a call from the shop this morning and they had the tranny out of my truck and did an inspection of the clutch and told my it is shot... almost worn down to the rivets:banghead:. The reason this surprises me is that it is a valair ceramic clutch that is supposed to hold 600HP and my truck is making less than 500HP and the clutch only has apprx. 12,000 miles on it.
I called valair and they guy told me that if i slip it alot it could possibly be worn out already... obviously, but i dont so whats the deal?
And then he proceeded to tell me it is out of warranty(by like a month:banghead:) so there is nothing he can do

How long should i expect an aftermarket clutch to last? i mean replacing it once a year is gunna be too expensive

Under normal driving you should get way more milage then that. I have seen
60,000 miles on stock clutches in other trucks. I dont think there woulld be
much difference between a cummins and other engines.
