99 wrangler grinding in neutral w/out depressing the clutch

Hi, its my first post on here but I've gotten a lot of help from reading all the threads on here. I have a 99 TJ 4.0 manual transmission with the ax-15 that is making an awful grinding sound from the rear half of the transmission when the clutch is let out in neutral. Also when I let it out in neutral the jeep starts to move forward. If I cycle through the gears (sometimes it's difficult to get it into any random gear) I can let the clutch out past the point I normally would and then the transmission clunks into gear with a jerk. Reverse is the same. When I'm in first gear the whole jeep jerks like it is in 4 low and I'm trying to turn with a front locker if that makes sense. I recently had the clutch replaced because I noticed a little slipping/grinding when switching gears without much regard to which gear it was so I assumed it was a clutch problem. When I picked the jeep up it drove Ok for a day or so, then starting doing the same little grinding action which progressively got worse until it came to the point it's at now. Any help would be greatly appreciated because I have no idea if I should start shopping for transmissions or looking to the clutch again. Thanks!
