Clutch Going?

How can I tell if my clutch is going? Also, how long from the time it "starts" to go do I have before it just won't work?

It's been a while since I've burned a clutch (never on the Jeep yet), so I don't really remember what it feels like, but it seems to me like I'm having a little trouble accelerating.

Does it rev a little more after you have takin your foot off the clutch, like actin like you still have your foot on the clutch pedal a bit? If so that is one sign.

first off, I don't think there is a real accurate way to answer your question. You would maybe get better response with more info as to what your problem is. You would have to determine if the problem is hydraulics or mechanical(physical clutch). Either way, once it starts to go, it typically will degrade quickly.
