I I've had this jeep for a couple months now and I've had this problem come up where after its been driving for a while the clutch won't disengage fully not letting it go into gear or making it very difficult. You can feel it in the pedal as well. I read that I could change the fluid to dot 4 and bleed the line. I'm not sure. I'm also concerned that maybe the tuber hose on the line may be old and expanding while hot. If anyone can help. It would be greatly appreciated. The problem does go away if I let it sit for a couple hours
How's the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder? Does it drop? Any leaks inside the cab where the clutch pedall goes into the clutch master cylinder? Any fluid leaks from the front of the bell housing?

It works fine cold and doesn't hot?
You mean after running or just temperature.
Look at the connection hoses, if they look old and the jacket is cracking it could be the hoses are expanding.
If they look OK and/or you notice it more after pushing the pedal a few times like normal driving then you could be getting air in the system from the master cylinder.flush out the system, bleed it thouroughly and make sure there is plenty in the resevior so it doesn't splash around and get air foaming up.
Fluid level is full. It was a little low the fist time I checked it but it hasn't moved since then. I have a slow oil leak that comes from the bell housing so I can't tell if any is coming through there. Before the problem happend after driving for a while but now it's constant. It seams like when you put the clutch all the way down its only disengaging 3/4 of the way
Don't just bleed, do a full flush. Keep bleeding until the fluid comes out clean. It is a cheap test anyway and pushing all the nice clean fluid through the system could degunk some of the seals and / or flush out some air bubbles that are being coy.
