need help!

So today my transmission got stuck in 5th gear and after about 5 mind of trying to drive my clutch was smoking so 5-10 mins of that and I decided limbing home in 4 low was better on the clutch so my question is did I burn up my clutch by doing that? It was replaced about a month ago so it litteely brand new?

You probably didn't totally destroy a new clutch.....but you may have warped/burnt the surface of the flywheel or pressure plate.

Not too much you can do about that while they are still in the Jeep.....but you'll have to pull them anyway if your transmission remains stuck.
