99 6-speed clutch won't disengage?!?!?!?

Today I changed my oil(motor) and went to the store shortly after. When I was pulling out of my street I went from 2nd to 3rd and the truck kinda bucked but seemed ok until I tried to stop at the stop sign. Pushed in the clutch and it just kept on going and I had to rip it out of gear to stop. Now I can't shift it when it's running I had to turn it off and put it in granny and limp home. I wasnt driving it hard just normal driving probably shifted around 1800 rpm. Any advice is great I'm supposed to start a job out of town tomorrow so I'm in a pretty big hurry. Oh by the way the truck has 150k on it and it's 4wd

Your clutch fork may have bent or broke.

Mine did this exact same thing. Ended up being a broken clutch plate. It cost me $2200 to fix (I went ahead and had the mechanic go ahead and completely rebuild the tranny.)

This is what I'm hoping the problem is. I'm pulling the transmission out today so I will post up and let you guys know what it is when I get it out. So if I need a clutch do u think your midlevel I believe it's the 350hp clutch will hold up to 38s, double stacked chips, bigger turbo, 80 hp injectors, intake and exhaust? I don't really want a monster clutch because I do a lot of city driving but if that's what I need I'll do it. I do pull my jeep on weekends and trailers once in a while for work. Never over about 7500 lbs

Does your truck still have the 2 piece tube kit?

I hope this isn't the problem dont really want to spend 2000$ on it I bought a manual because I could never keep the autos together in my previous powerstrokes and I'm not off to a good start with the 6 speed. Thanks for all the replies

There is an updated 1 piece tube kit. The 2 piece failed and would not allow the clutch to release.
