'91 Wrangler YJ wont go into 5 gear; HELP!

I have 2.5 YJ 91 Jeep Wrangler with 5-speed manual that won't go into 5 gear any more for some reason. Is anyone familiar with this issue? Here is what's going on:

All of the other gears work well including reverse.
The problem happened when I shift to 5 gear from 4 gear, the engine just revs and 5 gear is not engaged. This is a big issue when on the high way; I can only go to 4 gear.

Any trouble shooting or help would be great! Thanks!

Common problem. You will need to remove transmission and replace 5th gear retainer with one of these. http://www.allstategear.com/AX5%205t...20RETAINER.htm
Search ax5 fifth gear and it will turn up any sources to getting it fixed.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.
