new jeep bad transmission

I have a 2013 stock jk with 13XXX miles on it and the clutch wont engage to shift gears. The transmission will not go into reverse and the only way it will shift into first is if the jeep is at about 5mph. to shift from 1st to 2nd i have to do perfect shifts because when I depress the clutch the rpms dont fall at all, its if there is no clutch at all. there is also no resistance when i press on the clutch pedal it just goes straight to the floor.

Any ideas on what this could be? All advice is greatly appreciated.

Sudden onset? Progressive issue? Computer code thrown? Fluid dump on the driveway? Transfer case in what position[s]?

Sudden. Parked hopped back in the jeep to go somewhere and it wouldn't shift into reverse or 1st. It's only shifts into first if its at 5mph and then the synco will release and let it slip into gear. No fluid on the ground that I saw. A few days before the clutch felt a little weird. It kept stalling in first at if I was jumping the clutch but I don't think I was. The only way to shift is when the rpms are perfect and it just slips into gear. Depressing the clutch does nothing other than turn the jeep on. And no code was thrown, no code lights at all???

Sounds like its just a hydraulic problem. Shouldn't be a big deal to fix. Just wait until your synchros go bad and it grinds into gears and pops out of gears when you're coasting. Mine was rebuild at 15k mile or so (2012), but it shifted like **** right from the get go. It just took that long for them to accept that it was a problem.
