Yes, I believe so.

Can you verify first that the clutch is trying to move????

before going through all of that. the reason, I mention this is the nut on the end can come loose and strip the shaft splines.

Pull off plastic belt cover and see what it does.

Alot less money than splitting cases, so maybe? worth a look

Also Check The Spline On The Rear Driveshaft. At The End Of The Driveshaft That Goes Into The Rear Diff There Is An "adapter"(for Lack Of A Better Word) That Goes Onto The Driveshaft That Adapts To The Diff Splines. We Had One Of These Strip On A Dune Trip. Same Symptoms As You Described.

I was going to say the drive shaft as well. Put it in 4WD. Does it go? If so your internal (expensive) engine parts are ok.

Same thing happened to me when I had the 7" gorilla lift and 29.5" swamplites. I did it on the snow doing doughnuts and broke through to dry pavement. It ended up being the same thing GREGC is talking about. It cracked it in several places and stripped out the driveshaft. Driveshaft was under $50 and the coupler was something like $15 I think. not too complicated just a PITA! You notice I'm running 26" tires now
