Default samurai stopped suddenly, wont move and dies when i realease clutch

Hey everyone. Im new to the forum, i recently bought a sami, i went out to drive it and now later than 20 feet the car came to a sudden halt and the engine died. I started it up again and had my foot on the clutch, when i release the clutch pedal the car starts to die. Please help me out with this if you can. The transmission engages all gears and so does the transfer case, idk what else to look at

Check Ebrake and individual brakes, jack it up and make sure both diffs and all axles rotate properly. This is where I would start.

if i'm understanding you correctly, It runs ok if you start it with your foot on the clutch and dies as soon as you lift your foot off? won't turn over with starter (or does so slowly with foot off clutch but fine with foot on clutch?) if so, then you have a dead input bearing into the trans, or some other issue in the input shaft area, time to drop the trans and strip it down.
