How have you bled it?
Bleeding the master end, then the slave end, leaving it over night for any air to rise to the highest point and bleeding it again can work.

Another way is getting a 20 or 50cc syringe, fill it with fluid and use that to push fluid in through the slave cylinder up to the master cylinder or suck the fluid the other way with the syringe.

Have a good look at the fire wall too, we had a Rodeo work ute and thought it had a dodgy clutch, but found it was a cracked firewall that was flexing, rather than allowing full pedal travel.

My experience is from bleeding motorbike bike brakes, some of them can be a real pain.
