Clutch slipping in rain

Hey,
So I've noticed that when it is raining/wet out and when I just get into the jeep to get going the clutch slips like crazy! Makes it difficult to shift and get into 1st gear without the Jeep shuddering. Never had this on any other stick jeeps I've had.
Anyone else got issues like that?
I am hoping the dealer will replace it.

If your clutch is malfunctioning in the rain (or on start up) you need to have it looked at. Properly working clutches don't slip.
