Clutch Slipping...

Last night i was driving it, and it was fine (to me) stiff to push in and it releases right off the floor. So this morning, i left for work and i pushed the clutch in and its soft, goes in gear fine, but to release it i had to let it all the way out.. it was strang, but i was still half asleep... when i got off work heading home, it was doing the same thing, so i punched it and as soon as it hit boost it just tached out slipping real bad. I don't know anything about these clutch systems. any thought on what it could be, other then a new clutch? yesterday was fine, i don't understand over night it changed. My truck is a 99 F-350 6 speed with stock gears and 37's. just has a intake and exhaust. If it is the clutch, whats the best low budget set up. I am only 18 and don't have much money at all..

thanks for any help!!

clutch is gone .. or pressure plate is screwed

I guess if you cant spend the $$ on a good southbend (i recommend it though do it once and then not have to worry anymore) then Id say grab a Valeo I just put one in my wrecker with the single mass conversion and it works great .. I work the hell out of the wreckers too

The South bend clutch is great!! the pedel is super easy, the only thing different is its grabby, so thats going to take some getting use to... since i went with a high power clutch and i don't have any real mods yet, when i put a chip in it and stuff, is it going to be different??
