let your truck get nice and hot, run it at idle, turn on the a/c; now, do you notice any extra noise coming from under the truck? listen closely, you may notice that the release bearing does have a slight rattle to it. when toyota did my clutch i asked if they were doing the rest and they said yes to eliminate all possibly causes since they had never seen this issue before (dealer here doesn't see many 4 bangers). not long later the noise i talk about was back so the whole transmission was replaced and release bearing/pilot shaft again. no more slipping but noise is back! anyway this might be a way to save a few bucks on your end..
ask them so see the old clutch, my luk pos clutch pressure plate had warped fingers all around causing the slippage.
