Default Possible clutch slip under hard acceleration

I've been driving around for a few days now, and under normal acceleration, It almost feels like my rear tires are loosing then gaining traction very rapidly. It makes the whole truck lurch ever so slightly, it's barely noticeable to my passengers. This only happens probably once or twice each time I go to school, accelerating from stoplights. I just got new tires, so it can't be that. I have ZERO experience with transmissions, So i don't know what a slipping clutch feels like. I've heard of people going up bridges and hills and they're clutches slipping. My truck has exactly 100k miles on it, and was abused by the previous owner.

So what I'm trying to ask is this the early stages of the clutch starting to slip? It's starting to get slightly worse every day.

Thanks in advance!!!

clutch will start to slip at the high end of each gear.(right before you shift to next gear). If it slips at the low end of the gear then ususally the flywheel is glazed and will chatter. Either way trany and clutch need to come out

Gah! Ok thanks! If I don't drop the tranny, replace the clutch and flywheel, and just leave it like it is, will the flywheel destroy the clutch?
