clutch/ throw out bearing

So I was mudding the other day and I got stuck. About six hours later I got my jeep out but it wouldn't move. It would start up fine and it would go into feast without a problem but once I let off the clutch it wouldn't catch. Iv had diff people tell me diff things with what's wrong. Geneal concensus sais its got to do with the clutch or throw out bearing. Is that something I should try and tackle myself or should I bring it to a jeep dealership? And if I were to do it myself how big of a pain in the ass would it be?

There is a hole under the clutch housing, when in water and in mud you shouldn't use the clutch (that is why you can start it without the clutch in 4low).

It must be full of mud in between the plate and the clutch. I guess you will need to have it towed, and then may be you can try pouring water in it by the hole to flush as much as possible what's in it.

I would skip the shop for now. Get it pulled out of the mud. Take it to a car wash, put on your worst looking clothes ever, get up under it (make sure it is NOT running) (why do I feel I NEED to add that???) and wash the hell out of the clutch, PP, TO bearing area with SOAPY WATER while someone else cycles the clutch pedal. once you see the water running clear, switch to plain water and do the same thing again.......

Once the water is running clear sans soap, stop and get out from under it. Start it up and see if your problem has been eliminated. Even IF it is gone, you may have issues in the future with clutch, PP, or TO bearing, but this MAY get you going again.

ALL should be replaced when it is more timely to do so.

You most likely got mud in between the clutch and flywheel. As mentioned before you can try cleaning it out but chances are you've all ready ruined your clutch. If it is ruined your cost is going to be the cost of a new clutch plus labor if you can't do it yourself.
For future reference never use the clutch when in deep water or mud. You can get the jeep moving if you put it into gear and give it gas when starting. This lets you bypass the clutch entirely.
