Is anyone else experiencing problems with the stock clutch?
It's not major, but it almost seems like no matter how you drive the truck, you still get that burning clutch smell. Any ideas?

Mine works fine. I had a smell for the first 1000? or so miles. Everything is OK now. I'm changing mine to put in a lightweight flywheel (like the Competition Coupe) and a "racing" clutch/pplate.

I wonder if there's a possibility that we got a bogus clutch?

No problem with mine. I drove from central VA down to Baton Rouge and had no "clutch smell".

No problems.. 2200 miles so far. I did have a clutch burn smell for about the first maybe 100 miles or so on a cold start (only lasted a few seconds), but that is just because it was new. I would certainly get this checked out as if you read you warranty is specifically EXCLUDES clutches.

Dodge replaced my complete clutch under warranty at 1200 miles. The viper tech said that the best he could figure, the pressure plate was not torqued down correctly, which then warped. It warped so bad that the center release spring teeth that the through-out bearing push on, were half popped out from under the through-out bearing.
It happened pretty quickly one day and felt like the clutch fluid resivoir had air in it.
The clutch had worked great before and since the replacement, now with 2100 miles.

But ya gotta give him props - When he does something, he goes all out! :D

I'm NOT exactly laughing at you, because it sounds like something I'd do, but it is funny. LMFAO...
