Ya can't float gears on a drag strip, jeep trail, while burried in a mud hole, or while fully loaded going up/down a hill.The clutch should never be used for shifting gears. It should be used to assist in shifting gears while speed matching the RPMs. Ever wonder why the syncros go out?
The clutch in a big truck is only used for starting off and stopping, never for shifting.
Also "big trucks" are on a different level than a regular vehicle.
