my HVAC man has a 2011 dually with a 6 speed. we swapped today for a very short drive. when i stepped on the clutch i almost put the pedal to thru the floor board. i swear icould push it in with one finger. when i went to let it out i did not think it was going to come up. i just kept lifting my foot until it cmae up all the way amd with a big jerk off i went. the whole time i am wondering what he thinks about the way i drive. we get to the job and both get out. he is holding his leg and wondering how anybody can drive a truck with a clutch that pushes back like mine. we both had a good laugh about it. it was a very nice truck but the clutch is so soft it reminds me of a little compact car with a hydraulic clutch, not a big dually. never been a fan of a clutch that soft unless i get stuck in traffic the goes slower thatn 1st gear at idle.

All the DMF trucks are that way, so 05.5+. I do the same thing when I get into my dads truck, 06. Now I have a OFE and it's even tougher than stock. My dad will be getting a Con O when his DMF craps the bed, so he may be in for a surprise!

so is it the oe pressure plate that is weak and causing the clutch to be so soft? i though ther might be something differant in the hydraulics giving it a better mechanical advantage. i would sure love to have one in my truck for traffic jams, but everyday driving it would drive me crazy.
