I have a Rugged Ridge 8500lb winch that came with the jeep. The lever to disengage the drum and free spool won't move. The winch goes in and out but just won't free spool. Any advice on how to fix this would be appreciated.

Sounds like the free spool lever is froze up or the clutch assembly is froze.
