Most likely a valve body issue . Partially open governor valve or sticky valve in general . Remove , clean , reassemble .

Welcome and PLEASE fill out your jeep profile !

The 42RE was the only transmission installed behind a 4.0L in '95.

Should I replace the pressure sensor along with the shift silonoid?

How do you know its a shift solenoid? The PCM will put the trans into limp mode and it will not go into 1st if it detects something wrong. My GC went into limp and stayed in 2nd gear when my speed sensor went bad. Have you pulled codes?
