Default New Clutch but still hard to get in gear

Hi. I just bought a used 1998 Dodge Ram reg cab 4X4. Prior to purchasing it I was told a new clutch was put in.

The previous owner believed a slave cylinder may need replaced? or an air bubble may be present and clutch needs bled/bleeded?

When you push the clutch in it feels like there is only an inch or two from the floor on the clutch. The other guy said you can pump it up a little and then it will go into gear easier. With that said it is hard to get in gear.

Also, when you put it in reverse it seems like the truck wants to run away with you or tries to go really fast so we have tried to avoid putting it in reverse.

Any advice or suggestions would be great.
Thank you!
