no clutch now?

I drove it today and noticed the clutch wasnt as sensitive as it was. Well i just went to go to kinkos do my PROJECT for SCHOOL and as i went to put it in gear, the clutch went to the floor, and i couldnt find any gear. I can shut it off and put it in gear, and be standing on the clutch an it wont engage but as soon as i take some pressure off the clutch it engages and just kinda bogs out as i didnt want to drive anywhere on it like this. What could be my issue as i drove it yesterday with no issues.

Sounds like your slave cylinder took a dump.Or your clutch master.Check the fluid in your master.See if there is any left.

Give us the low down on your jeep(year make model)But i'm gonna speculate that YOUR slave cylinder is internal.Inside the transmission.You would have to drop the trans to replace it.I'm still new to the jeep thing so i'm not real familiar with all the specifics of models and such but when it comes to issues like these they act the same.You only have a couple components to a hydraulic clutch regardless of brand.A clutch master,the hydraulic line going from the master to the slave,and the slave cylinder.Some clutches have external slave cylinders(you can see it on the side of the trans)It has a rod usually that goes through a fork in the trans.If there is an inspection cover of some type on the bottom of the trans you can remove it and see if the slave leaking.If you have no leaks anywhere(check the line too)than it's usually the clutch master.Take your clutch age into consideration.Might be time to give the old clutch the old heave ho.

If you are going to go through all the work of replacing the clutch I would go ahead and replace the pressure plate, throw out bearing and possible have the flywheel turned. I would hate to do all that work and have to do it again.

Totally agree.Most clutch kits should come with disc,pressure plate,and release bearing.Installing a clutch on a flywheel that hasn't been turned or new can cause premature clutch failure.Do it once and do it right.You'll love it in the end.
