I have an 84 cj7, 258 6 cyl 5 speed.

Very difficult getting it into gear, especially first, and trying to put it into reverse grinds real bad. Any thoughts?

I have, and it kinda fixed it, but only temporarily. Anything else? Or do I need a whole clutch replacement?

Check out the linkage from the petal all the way down. The cross shaft and the bushings can become warn out and leave a lot of slop. Only takes about 1/4" of slop to do what your describing. On my 86 with a T5 I can tell when the adjustment is needed. Mine, in reverse is real hard out to get out of gear, turn the motor off and it shifts like butter, no gear bind and the clutch is fully releasing when not under load.
