Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
Reverse gear is does not use a synchro gear, so is it possible the clutch is not disengaging completely ?
The only other thing that comes to mind would be something in the linkage that keeps you from moving it far enough to engage.

The shift linkage inside the transmission is bent or broken. From the shifter there is a ~10 inch shift rod that goes into the transmission which toggles a fork that selects one of three independent levers in the transmission. When you go into reverse it pushes the rod to the left and locks onto the rod which controls 5th gear and reverse. If the forks are damaged then it cant grab the knuckle of the rod and therefore it want engage the gear You will probably notice if you go back and forth from 1st to reverse a bunch of times you may even get it to drop in once and awhile. The fix requires removing the transmission from the car and taking it apart to access the inside linkage.
You best bet is to remove the transmission yourself as that is the bulk cost of repair (about $800.00), then take it into a transmission shop for a fix. You should be able to get it repaired for about 200 dollars.
