Shift clunk in 2H, fine in 4H

My jeep TJ makes a hard "clunk" when I'm shifting gears in 2H. It occurs at about the half way point on the clutch pedal. If I let out the clutch VERY slowly, it engages much smoother. When I put it in 4H, there is no problem. I can shift fast without any clunk. Does anybody know what the cause may be?

I have a 2000 TJ, 4.0 I6, NV3550, NP231J, Skyjacker 4" lift, 1" TC spacer drop, stock rear DS, Dana 44 rear with Detroit locker, Dana 30 front.

Thanks for the help.
