is my clutch going?

when i first got teh truck last year. it seemed to shift smoother and grind lest gears. the gear part might be me shifting to fast not getting the clutch in the whole way or my stupid matt slide under my pedal but it seems like now i have to let the clutch out way past teh grab point to get it to move. its a lil rougher shifting and pulling out. i didnt get many slips maby on a big hill or something like that, but some times the pedal feels werid almost like the clutch is not out the whole way but its not slipping just like the truck is bogging. i plan on replacing it around easter to summer time. im just coursious if its not as bad as i think

sounds like the slave cylinder.. look for leaks at the bellhousing. rather common. i'd fix it before you have to pay for a tow.. in my case ended up being $200 and ruined my camping trip along with everyone else's that had their gear in my truck.

I found that if I shift at a lower rpm the trans may or may not grind a gear.
Higher rpms it does not happen to me.

Mine does that, believe its a leak in the slave... I've been limping it along, fill your clutch fluid reservoir and see if that helps for the time being
