Southbend clutch vibe.

I just had a new southbend clutch/flywheel put in my truck. Picked it up from the shop and it is shaking at idle, like it is missing. Feels like a Dodge with a bad dual mast flywheel. Engages a little choppy but not too bad, fine while running down the road. Shop owner says just drive it, needs break in. Vibration is driving me nuts as I work my winch alot during the day.
Did I get a bad clutch or a bad install?

if its shaking, and you're not comfortable with it, why even leave the shop?
