Sounds like you may have an issue within the auto transmission unit.. I hope I am wrong but I've got an 03 rubicon with a slipping clutch (I haven't had time to fix..) It will move so I would say your problem wouldn't be there. Not to sound too basic but does the bike free roll? No chance of a locked up front or rear end? I would also check the solenoid that controls the gear selection. Here is a link to a full service manual. Service Manual Downloads - All years
Hopefully some of this may be useful to you.

Best guess without seeing it personally would be clutch related,or tranny related...Change the oil,and filter,run it in neutral for a few minutes to warm the engine up,then use the manual shift handle to shift the transmission into gear...(after safely jacking the whole atv up off the ground)...See if it turns the tires,or what it does,,,

I've never seen a trans unit go down but that is kinda what is sounds like. It's basically a form of a hydraulic piston pump that powers a hydraulic piston motor.. If the oil filter failed and trash got into the pump or drive motor it could be bad news.
