HELP! manual transmission reverse problem

I have a 91 yj with a 4 cyl 5 speed with 79k miles on it. the transmission and transfer case was rebuilt 500 miles ago by a reputable 4x4 shop. Tonight when i was going into reverse it started grinding when trying to go in. You could feel the gears turning on the stick. if you would let the clutch out and back in sometimes it would go right in other times same thing. i've noticed that at a stop it's kinda hard once in a while to go into 1st you really have to give it a push. but nothing w/ reverse until tonight. any ideas and if so, how much money are we talking - i've already drained my life savings it seems like

It sounds as though you have a clutch release problem more than a transmission issue.
If you shut off the engine, is it easier to shift? If it is, check your clutch master cylinder fluid level. If that's OK, you may have a pressure plate that's binding.

yes if i shut off the engine it goes in just fine. is that something that requires the transmission to be torn apart? either way what does something like that cost to get fixed. I've spend some much already and the transmission was rebuilt last summer (by previous owner)

Sounds like your hydraulic throw out bearing could be bad or have air in the line. I would bleed the clutch system first before tearing anything apart.
