Clutch system pressure

So my weekend challenge has been to fix my clutch system. I replaced the slave and master. Got all the bubbles out, but I can't seem to get the whole thing pressured enough to work fine. I still am on the floor with the pedal and sometimes it still rolls on the floor cause it doesn't fully disengage. Anyone know how I can get the system to pressurize correctly? If that's exactly what I need to do?

At that point I'd go to the Jeep dealer and just get a new master/slave assembly which comes pre-filled/pre-bled and ready to go. The factory didn't design the clutch hydraulic system to be repaired, it was designed to be replaced as an assembly. Some manage to get them working again but not everyone.

I already got a new master and slave in there. I don't want to have to buy another.

And how well is that working out for you, buying them separately and trying to get them working?

I got them on and bleed like a piece of cake. Bleeding took longer then install.

I believe I found a leak which would cause me to never keep pressure. I have to check after drive home soon to see if it is or if it's just left over from bleeding.
