    Linkage at the tranny. Need someone under the truck to follow what isn't moving. Oh and Welcome to TDPRI! Thanks for stopping in and I hope you get your problem solved.

    No external shift linkage . Linkage issues are under the transmission top cover . Hopefully , there is a removable access panel in the floor . Push clutch pedal to floor and check if rear wheels will turn . If they don't , release the parking brake ( bad humor attempt ) . With the parking brake released , and the clutch pedal depressed , the real wheels should turn . If they do not , there is a good chance that you are in two gears at the same time . This indicates a linkage issue . Good luck .
