Question My JK wrangler 2010 clutch burnt out @ 27000kms

my JK is in the shop with a burnt out clutch and there was to much free play with the dual mass flywheel. it only has 27000 kms on it brought Oct 2010
dealership has said flywheel is covered but not the clutch, we had the car in dealership 12months ago as it was stalling in first, and when attempting to go up hills,small hills at that, the dealership told us just to give it more gas????? it only had 10000+ kms at that time...
has anyone else had this issue, if so what did u do and any suggestions on what i should do.
we have done some 4wding, and towing a camper trailer but only a half dozen times.
the flywheel had excessive play. would the flywheel have excessive play contribute to the clutch going?

Excessive play in the flywheel could cause clutch damage.
