Anyway I could of worn out a SB Con OFE Clutch in a years time and 10,000 miles? And I'm talking about normal driving and never pulling a trailor with a stock f350. I ask this because mine has started slipping and I am unemployed with no $$$ to have any work done. Thanks

you can damage a clutch in the first 50' if you are not driving it properly and abusing it.

there is a few things that will cause a clutch to slip...
1st to check for is leaks... is the rear main seal leaking and contaminating the material? oil soaked frictions will slip very easily
2nd... adjustment. are the ford hydraulics adjustable? i dunno anything about fords. where is the clutch engaging, how far off of the floor is the clutch engaging?
3rd. driving style. are you slipping it to take off smoothly?
my ofe lived for a few years over 500 hp, drag racing, trailer towing, AND i sled pulled it. never slipped.
