Hear that. My 2004 Cummins had one of those clutches. As I aged the darn thing seemed even more firm. Went to replace it at over 200,000 miles and the thing was still like new. Unfortunately I had it out because of a transmission input shaft and that two piece flywheel failure so changed it anyhow. My old Ford tractor is like that today.Side note, I laughed at this. Got in my jeep to move it this afternoon and just about put the clutch pedal through the floor. Got used to the heavy clutch in that 2500 pretty quick.
Depends on where you are. I thought the OP's new truck has a rusty frame. Maybe it is not rusted through but it sure shows lots of surface rust. Must be that condition is good for Colorado and other places that have severe weather conditions with road salt and chemical treatment in the winter.What's nice is that truck is so low in rust. Hell my 2017 probably has more rust underneath.

Sold my old Cummins to a guy from Kentucky. He came to pick it up. Not a hint of rust except where I had some damage from debris behind the bumper. Wife's 2009 Ford Escape had me searching and searching for any sign on even a debris deposit, let alone rust. Perfectly new underneath when I sold it. My Ecodiesel after 5 1/2 years had ZERO rust underneath. None of these vehicles were ever rustproofed or had any kind of paint applied on suspension, frame or underbody panels.
Neighbor just bought a 2003 Dodge 2500 with Cummins. 200,000 miles. The body and frame look super from what I quickly checked. It was used by a local rural owner to pull horse trailers. The new owner had a 1500 that was crashed into and trashed. He wanted something immediately and found this with a sale sign on in a yard. It looks so good he lifted, bought rims, bigger tires, put clearance lights and fender flares on in just the three weeks he has owned it. It sure looks clean to me.
That's why informed buyers of used vehicles come to Florida or source them from here. Unless you ride them on a beach or live in an ocean environment on the East Coast with prevailing winds blowing off the ocean, there is no cause for rust production.
