Re: transmission question

Does the truck move at all. Your break might be dragging. With the engine off try to rotate all the tires on the floor.(engage the diffs and tranny. Don't let the posi traction engage push all four wheels in the same direction. If everything is locked. I would start digging. DON'T force anything to move as more dammage may occure. If all is well in the drive train check your clutch on the engine see if you can spin the clutch bell by hand.
You also may have your grear mesh to close between your clutch and spur gear. Lots to check. Grab a parts diagram and see if anything is installed wrong or missing. My guess is, if your truck was working good till you replaced your clutch its a clutch issue or mesh issue.

If you have used your truck enough that you toasted your clutch I would go through the whole machine from front to back. Clean and inspect. Replace anything thats even looking a slight bit worn. Learn everything you can about your truck.
