Default stuck in third gear

okay, so here is the issue. I have a 1991 4.0 with the 5 speed manual tranny. I bought the truck with the tranny stuck in 3rd gear. At this point its far to cold out to totally dig into it but I am really curious as to why its stuck. I don't know what the guy did but I can't get the clutch pedal to push down and yes the tranny is stuck in gear. Any ideas as to why?

Your clutch works by the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder which has a rod to push the clutch to where you can change the gear.

See if you can get the clutch free.

how did you move the truck home if you cant push the truck in gear and you can drive stuck in third? i say bypass the neutral safety switch and see if you cant bump start it. that might break it free!

I bought it and had it towed home....I cannot push in the clutch at all. The tranny will not come out of third gear and I don't know enough about these trannies to figure out why its stuck.
