Exclamation 2012 Clutch release issues

so i have a 2012 rubicon with 19k on the clock and the slave clyinder went out... took it to the dealer and they replaced it now the clutch grabs 2 inches off the floor. its awful so they replaced the master clyinder and the clutch disk and pressure plate and it had no effect. what do i do they said theres nothing else they can do. im not going to pick my car up until it releases up high like it did before.

This dealer is golling Jeep and chrysler in Bloomfield hills Michigan and supposted to be the number one dealer in the untied states. they have had my jeep now for almost 2 weeks. please help any ideas will help!!

i paied for the clutch. so what happened in order
1. Slave started to leak no issue with peddle
2. took it to dealer they replaced the slave... oil everywhere inside the bell housing and leaking out the bottom
3. now the peddle is very light and releases the clutch about a inch off the floor
4. They put another slave in it and called me to say hey its still a issue were going to drop the trans.
5.Pay For new clutch and pressure plate and throw out bearing i did this since they droped the trans and it wouldent cost me any thing in labor to replace the clutch and since i bought it used i thought this was a good idea.
6.Dealer calls and says its now releasing even closer to the floor say's the master clylinder must be bad
7.Replace master clylinder still releases in the same place had no effect but now my brakes are alot stiffer

and thats where im at

Wait, you paid them to replace your clutch and it is still messed up? How much did they charge you, is it the same dealer where you bought your Jeep?

Ok, so first - ask them to drive a new one and see where the clutch engages on that one. It isn't necessarily a good thing when the clutch engages too high. In the old days, as the clutch wore the engagement would come later and later, and you'd have to crawl under the car to adjust a threaded clutch rod to get the adjustment back closer to the floor.

Wish I had a suggestion to offer, but I'm following this one out of curiosity to read the resolution. Seems like they're overlooking something major, but I'm not familiar enough with the slave cylinder/pedal setup to even venture a guess.
