Explain in a little more detail please. The shifter will not go into the gear/range or the machine will not move.

It is like it is always in neutral. It sounds like it shifts, it shows it shifting on the display, but it goes no where.

On the Rubicon, the engine and transmission uses the same oil supply. I've heard that if the oil level is down, it causes the transmission to "slip". Did he put enough oil in?

I would start with checking the oil level. On the Rubicon you have to put in 4 qts and run the machine a while and then finish filling it with oil. If he just put in the 3 1/2 - 4 qts it is low.
