Okay I may just be paraniod but I think I can fell my clutch starting to slip. It feels like it engages as the pedal is farther out and when I punch it in like 3rd or 4th gear it feels a bit sluggish. I have the slip guage on the Edge monitor and it'll say like 2% or so when I'm really pushing it, is that normal?

I've only got 42k on the clock. I could take it to the dealer for a possible warranty, but I'd have to take out the lift and crap, which I don't wanna do. What do you all think, I'm I going nuts or is my clutch starting to crap out. :help:

Oh, one last thing about shifting, when I pull out like in 1st or 2nd, the tranny makes a rattle noise, like when I'm not hitting the throttle. Its done it since day one and does it with my International as well. I assume its normal, but what is it??? Should I do something diffrent to not make this happen?

Your powertrain warranty won't cover clutch linings as they're considered normal wear items (like brake linings, tires, belts, hoses).

My truck has 44k on it (had an EZ on since 7k miles, then upgraded to the Juice w/Attitude a little over a year ago) and the stock clutch is holding great. I have 381/728 at the rear wheels.

the clutch is only covered a couple months/couple thousand miles for product defectiveness. if it is slipping, put in a new heavier duty clutch

Ok, so I guess its not covered as I'm well over a year and 12k....

You guys with the Edge monitor, do me a favor and put the slip setting on one of your guages. Maybe that few percentage is normal, I don't know. I might just be feeling the Juice defueling itself for some reason. I find it hard to believe that the clutch would be dieing at 42k. I was looking through other posts and people were saying they have well over 80k on the stock clutch.

What kind of performance clutches are out there? I really don't wanna go crazy, but I would like something that'll hold the extra power and last longer. I was thinking about getting a big camper trailer too, so I should probably upgrade anyway.
