Default clutch petal frozen solid??????

OK so I have a 96 ranger stx 4.0 truck was running perfect last night went to start for work and the clutch petal is froze solid????

If you have moisture in the clutch hyd fluid then it could freeze up or you have a bad master or slave cylinder on the truck

My clutch line came off last week and i had to vacuum bleed the slave cylinder. It could be that the spring clip holding the fittings together lost a little spring tension.

Yeah, I'd make sure the line is connected to the slave first.
