Jeep won't move

Okay in need of some opinions.
I was driving down the road (2007 wrangler x 6 speed)
I kicked her a lil in first gear, and I shifted to third and I had no power like it was in neutral. I pulled over. Did basic trouble shooting. I do not think its the clutch because I can put it in all gears while running or not running, no grinding or forcing. But I can push it while in gear. Ideas?? I was thinking the t case. But not sure where to start

Probably could be a handful of things. Did you try shifting the transfer case? Does it go anywhere in 4x4? Is the shifter cable broken?

Really sounds like your tcase is in neurtral. When you say kicked it in 1st gear, what do you mean by kicked?

What does the clutch feel like?

I would also check the t-case.

Broken pinion in rear diff? Try 4wd to see if front engages.

I put it in 4x4 and it goes in but it still will not move, and by kicked it I meant gave it some gas.

1. Broken linkage for T case? 2. Broken shifter fork?
