My guess is that it's either a leak in the slave cylinder; or that the system is not fully bleed. How did you bleed it? Pushing the clutch pedal and turning the bleed screw?? Maybe you should get one of those after market suction tools?
It's odd that the reservoir went dry after just 59K, so I'm leaning towards a leak somewhere. But then again, a leak after just 59K is really rear as well. My 2000 ranger has 95K and the clutch works like a champ.
