Back right Tire wont spin

So my car isnt moving forward or backwards, well it moves but at a slow pase like walking pase. whats going on is when i try to move forward it wont go. i let go of the clutch while its on first gear, its supposed to skip and turn off right. well my jeep doesnt, it stays on. i know its not the differential because i opened it and checked inside. and i know it aint the transmission at least i hope its not because i have took the transmission off to replace the hydraulic system for the clutch.

i need some wisdom from you guys!

have you tried it in 4 wheel drive yet? When you let go of the clutch in first gear the truck should move forward. When you get your truck moving and you push in the clutch do the rpms hang or do they drop when you push the clutch in?

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Just a thought--might try jackin up the rear end, and see if one wheel spins in a forward direction in low, and the other wheel spins the opposite direction in reverse. If they do, then just maybe it's clutch related. How "fixed" did you fix it? And did you adjust it afterwards?

is it clunking around on their or making any noise at all. it kinda sounds break related i would say. if u can take that tire off i would do a once over on the breaks just to see if everything looks good.

Have you tried jacking it up on both sides putting it in neutral and spin tires by hand. if they both spin easy its not break related! if you cant spin right tire
id say there is a definantly a break dragging!

I'm having a tough time following what you are saying.
When you push the clutch pedal down, can you get it to go into gear?

If so, you get it in first & start letting the pedal up does it feel like it's grabbing?

If that's all working, are you saying it moves the vehicle freely, but at a slower speed?
If that's the case, it may be that the transfer case is in low range, or not fully engaged by the T-case shifter. Sometimes I have to move the vehicle forward a little to get the shift lever to go all the way forward.
