Poppig out of gear in 3rd

On my 87 YJ, 5 speed, 4.2, no idea on the axles. 32" tires.
When ever I am driving around town and I am in 3rd, Which is most of the time. Every time I let off the gas it pops out of gear. If I hold my hand on the shifter I can feel it pop but can keep in in gear. If I hold it and ride the clutch a ways to the stop sign, it starts to grind even with the clutch in. If I pull it out of gear it stops. Then when I take off, it shifts good and if I have to let off the pedal at all, pop, its out of gear. It seems to only do this in 3rd.
I have had plenty stick shifts in my life, but have been lucky enough, I guess that I have never had to work on them. So now I get to learn,

Start looking for another trans. Best option is the ax-15 swap or auto swap.. You have the worse trans jeep ever put in a wrangler..
Plenty of write ups on this site on how to do this..
