Transmission & Clutch Issues need help!

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler, its been lifted and currently sits on 33". It has around 106k miles on it. Manual Transmission.

Abit of history; its been leaking/burning about a quart every 2-3 weeks if driven daily for the past 40k miles or so . Clutch has been getting rougher and rougher and about a week ago it finally got to hard to put into gear . Ive done some research and it sounded like I needed to either change the clutch cylinder or the slave cylinder. Its been sitting outside for about a week and finally got time to go out and look at the under carage. Looks like its leaking abit of fluids, about a 6" circle underneath where the tranny and engine connect. I also checked the slave cylinder and it looked pretty pristine with no leakage. ClutchMaster Cylinder was abit harder to find and was unable todo so as of yet......

What would cause the clutch to be so hard to get into gear??

What are the hotspots that may start leaking??

I can do the work just need to understand what has to be done to fix the issue. Its getting close to warmer weather and need to get my Jeep back on the road as soon as possible!

Side note:

Hard to put into gear while the jeep is on, when its off it goes right in!

Just talked to a "Jeep Master" and he said it was the slave cylinder out of brake fluid for my hydrolic clutch. Going to feel it up and see what happens from there....
