what's that burning smell?

I was towing a skid steer....total weight with trailer was pushing 12,000 lb up a hill that has about a 1 mile grade. I have a six speed manual and was lugging it up the hill in fourth gear. I was doing about 45-50 mph up the hill and when I got to the top I could smell something burning. I know I shouldn't lug it but I didn't really feel like downshifting. I don't have a pyro guage but I don't have any chip either. I only have a 4 inch turbo back and afe intake. I also have a 1.0 exhaust housing. Was I pushing high EGTs and melting something? I should get a pyro guage.

Smells

How many miles are on your clutch?

143000 miles on the truck, and I'm pretty sure it's the original clutch. I've actually been thinking of replacing it because it's probably due for one. I can't feel the clutch slipping when I'm accelerating from low gear and if it's going to burn that's when I would expect it.
