Cummins dual mass flywheel

Does anybody have expertise on these? My 08 Cummins has one apparently and I have noticed a couple of things that seem fishy. The truck has about 20K on it now, 15 when I bought it.
1. The engagement point is near the top.....almost no free play in the pedal.
2, When I shift out of 1st gear unless I feather the throttle prior to shifting it feels like I'm pulling it out of gear without pushing in the clutch.
3. I have begun to notice the engine hopping a bit at ldle.

I have wondered all along why anyone would buy a truck like this and only put 15K on it in seven years....(what is wrong with it?)
