    2008 JK Unlimited 6 speed

    I can shift Jeep into 1st and let out on the clutch but it won't go anywhere. Suggestions on issue?

    Does reverse work?
    Ok if you rev 1000-1200 rpm put it in 2nd or 3rd and slowly let the clutch out, will it move?

    Was this a gradual problem with any symptoms or a sudden problem? Any noises or grinding or burnt toast smells? Otherwise ya might have to drop the trans or take the jeep into a shop.

    Is this only an issue with 1st gear? do the other gears work properly? If it's not a linkage issue it's likely internal

    Sounds like it might be a linkage problem with it stuck between gears.

    Second thought

    Is your transfer case in neutral?
