Clutch Problem

Went to take the 110 out today and the clutch seems to slipping a lot. Actually, it's not grabbing at all and the truck won't move an inch. I backed down my driveway thanks to gravity before I realized it wasn't working and had to push the beast back up to park it. The last time I drove it I had no issues with the clutch at all. I replaced the master cylinder and refitted the slave cylinder less than 3K miles ago. Clutch master cylinder reservoir is full and there isn't any fluid leakage from what I can see. When I depress the clutch pedal, the faint whirring noise that is present when the clutch is released goes away. When I release the clutch, the usual faint whirring noise returns but completely slips and the truck doesn't move.

I'm still quite an amateur when it comes to this, so does anyone have any advice or pointers? I appreciate any info or advice you all can give to my novice ass.

110 is an '85 ROW with a 3.5L V8 and LT95 4-speed gearbox. I do have a NIB LT95 clutch kit in the garage if it does need to be replaced. I hear removing the beastly LT95 is a bitch!

Is your transfer box in neutral?

::Slaps forehead:: LOL. Of course. On Friday I was removing all the old nasty carpet affixed with spray adhesive, and my 4 year old son was "helping" me by climbing around all over the cab and messing with the gear shift lever, etc.

I just went out there and checked... sure enough, the transfer case was in N. Fired it up and put it in gear and all is well. Should have been the first thing I checked. Guess I need to brush up on immediate action drills with the 110. Thanks guys, for helping me see the obvious. Guess this was a case of me having SAOAFR - situational awareness of a fucking rock.
