Question about Jeep Wrangler
First, check that the clutch pedal is intact and that it is mechanically sound and able to fully operate the master (I've seen a few that have broken welds on the ear that attaches to the master actuator rod) If the clutch is not disengaging, either the bell spring inside the clutch cover is not functioning properly and isn't lifting the pressure plate off the disc when the pedal is depressed, or the transmission input shaft is still turning because though the disc is running free, it may be binding in the pilot bearing in the rear of the crankshaft. and not slowing down as disc is released. it's a shame that everyone now uses a full bellhousing..In the "olden days", you could remove the lower part of it and actually look at what was going on in there. Unfortunately, even if I was there, I'd need to remove the transmission to offer anything but an educated guess.
If you have done everything you said, and there is no air in the system, then the next step is trans removal and good visual inspection.
Good luck...any specific questions about whatever you find, just ask and I'll answer!

If this is the original clutch, the spring arms could be fatigued and warping after the clutch is hot.
First thing to check is the clutch master cylinder push rod from the pedal to the master cylinder. If it is worn, it will not allow enough travel of the master cylinder to disengage the clutch. Also, the rod may be adjustable so you can lengthen the rod and get the proper stroke.
Second: Check the firewall area were the clutch master cylinder is mounted. Use a straight edge to see if the firewall mounting area is flat. They tend to bow into the engine compartment, causing the clutch disengage issue.
Check the rod first, if there is an adjustment you can solve the problem quickly.
