95 yj grinding in all gears

Hey guys,
i have a 95 yj with the ax-15 and a 4.0L that has 144k. Started feeling some odd moving parts feeling through the shifter going into third, soon after that she started grinding into all of the gears. Last time i started her she was even grinding in neutral, but when i engaged the clutch the grinding noise stopped. Clutch, throw out, and pilot bearing were all done 30k ago. So is this trans cashed or could i get lucky?

Have you drained the tranny to see if any metal is floating around in there ?
If it's not broke- modify it, so it won't break

Two things clutch slave cylinder or tranny. You have an external slave so no issue to see if it is working and just needs to be bled or replaced. Tranny like above mentioned a drain and search for metal or brass from the synchros. You can filter the drained fluid through some cheesecloth cofee filters etc to see what residue is in the oil. That way you can make a somewhat good decision on what is wrong and how to repair.
