Sounds like the clutch slave cylinder has gone south.

X2 on the bad clutch slave cylinder unless you see it leaking out of the master or the line somewhere. The drip should be at the transmission and not the transfer case so that might be another issue.

FYI - This should be posted in the Wrangler forum and not the CJ forum unless it is not the vehicle in your profile.

According to what RockAuto lists, it looks like the slave cylinder is internal. Clean things up as best as you can, refill the system and verify that the slave is leaking unless you can see that is where is it coming from. That should be pretty easy to do if it leaked out as fast as you said it did. With the engine off and brake set/wheels chocked, get someone to pump the clutch pedal while you look for the leak. Since the transmission will have to come out you might want to consider replacing the clutch assembly and the engine rear main seal. Good luck.

P.S. There is a lot of information around here. After looking for a while you will be able to change your profile descriptions from 'stock' to what the part actually is like Dana 30 axle for example.
