Starter sounds like the bendicts is not throwing out like it should. You could try lightly tapping it with a hammer to see if something is sticking it in. Best bet would be to just replace it. As far as the shifting issue, like you, I'm new to the jeeps and mine does the same thing but with 4th gear mainly. Sometimes it just doesn't want to shift into any gear at all. I dunno much about them so I plan on replacing it, the flywheel, and the clutch.

For the shifting check your master. If the master or slave is leaking it will be wet on the inside of the firewall behind the clutch pedal and down. Look under the carpet for wetness also.. for the master, and under the slave for the slave leaking. Check your master fluid level first.

The other side of hard shifting is fluid. It does not take much to get water in the tranny, look for a whitish color. Also the fluid may be old, I would replace the fluid first.
