SOURCE: clutch peddle will not mash.
when you bleed the system you need to force fluid from the slave cylinder up threw the master cylinder . this is proper way to bleed clutch system.

Sounds like you missed the ball socket inside the transmission housing. Remove the shifter and look closely. Remember pivoting will position the socket opposite the direction of movment of the shift lever. Insert the ball of the shifter correctly in the socket and you'll be all set.

If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.

It is very difficult for you to disengage the clutch by hand or with any leverage you can get outside the transmission. There is over 200 lbs of force clamping on the clutch disc.
If you replaced the clutch and took the slave cylinder out of the transmission without putting a brick under the clutch pedal or disconnecting the pivot arm from the pedal then you ruined the hydraulics. Buy a new PRE-BLED system from a local auto store. Generally this is the problem.
Either that or the clutch fork is bent or you installed the throwout bearing backwards (or simply fell off the fork which is not all that uncommon).
