When I put my 86 CJ7 in 1st it jerked and made a noise, anything to worry about?

I have 1986 Jeep CJ 7 with T5 5 speed manual. Dana 44 in the rear. Today I was driving and stopped in a stop sign, put it in 1st and it jerked. It did the same thing that an automatic car does when you put it in gear and it engages and jerks. But with a Manual I never experienced it before. I replace both motor mounts today. I do not know if this is ireelevant or not.
Any ideas what could have happened? It drove fine after the incident.
Thanks in advance.
It is a new Jeep to me so I do not know it perfectly yet.

Ck your clutch linkage and pedal free play.
Also ck your tranny mount.
You want 1-1 1/4" pedal freeplay.
You really must get a copy ot the FSM, MR-252. Haynes/Chilton just won't cut-it.
Have'n you along, is like loose'n 2 good men
