You have a definate concern inside the transmission your gears are marred badly the gears 2-5 are synchrnized and helical style for smooth shifting 1st and reverse are spur cut so you cant accidentally shift into these gears while driving i would look for a good used transmission

Does the engine slow at all when you shift it into either? Ifnot, the connecting rod may not be attached to the transmission so it is not actually shifting.

Shift lever repair


Most likely the shift cable that connects the shifter to the transmission if you can find where it connects to the transmission check there first sometimes they can get disconnected. then if your shifter is in the center console take the cover off and make sure shifter is still connected to cable. If that's not the problem and the cable is moving at the transmission then it's a problem inside the transmission

TRANSMISSION JUMPS OUT OF REVERSE


if you have lifted the jeep, there may not be enough room for the the gear shift to fully engage reverse. mine did this when i added a four inch lift. the simplest and cheepest soultion is to cut away about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch out of the sheet metal behind the gear shift in the reverse position. i didnt even have to remove enough to create a hole that the boot wouldnt cover.

your linkage may need adjusting. I had a problem like this when I put it in park, my reverse lights were on and it wouldnt re-start until i shoved the gear shift hard into park. Check this out first.

Transmission shifting problem


Don't know if you ever got this fixed, but my guess is it's a bad throttle position sensor.
