Clutch or Trans Problem?

I have a 2001 TJ 4L with a manual transmission. I believe the clutch went out today but it only has 60K on it. Driving home it became hard to shift out of gear and now I can push the pedal to the floor and move the shifter through the pattern but it does not engage. It is a clutch issue or did I break something else? I do not baby this rig and it has never failed me. I have taken it on some pretty wicked trails all over from Moab to Ouray. Help?

If with the motor running you can put it in gear and let off the clutch and motor revs but car doesn't move clutch is gone. Check and make sure the xfer case isn't in N. new clutch time proly. Mine went out at like 45k. But I blame the 3.07s and 33s for that

Thx for the help.

I appreciate the help. I figured it might be the clutch. At least it happened in town and not on the trail.

I am by no means a professional but this is exactly
What happened to mine and a new clutch solved it. I'm sure the pros will chime in when they wake up!
