Valair clutch problem

I put a new valair organic clutch in my 96 f250 about 15000 miles ago with the luk single mass flywheel. from the get go there was a loud racket when it was running in neutral with the cluch engauged but i was told by valair that it was normal gear roll over. I have not even hooked a trailer to the truck and it already feels slippy and engauges all the way at the top of the pedal. I know this usually means the disc is gone but it seems to have plenty of material left( see pic). Im just loking for any other options im not thinking about before pulling and replacing a nearly new clutch. My only power mod is a tony wildman chip. Also when i have someone disengauge the clutch while i look from underneath there is probably 1/8th to 1/4" worth of space. The clutch grabbed higher than i expected when i first put it in as well but i attributed it to the hydraulics. Is it possible the disc i recieved was too thin?

Is it possible the pressure plate got weak in that short of a time? One last question, does this clutch disc look to have plenty of material left to every one else?
