Ax-15 5th gear

I have a 98 jeep wrangler with a ax-15 transmission. I figured trying to rebuild it my self was way out of my league. So I took it to the local transmission shop. The problem I was having is when going in to 5th gear I would have to try twice it always works on the second time. And it's really hard getting it out, when the time comes. The shop has done many jeeps but have never seen this problem. They have rebuilt it twice in two weeks. And it still has the same problems. Has anyone heard of this? Or has a idea of what to do next?

Is the shifter hitting something?

It has a transfer case drop on it, I have taken the console out and it does not hit anywhere on the tub.

Since it doesn't sound like the shifter then, what things did they replace during the rebuilds? Get a list to help narrow it down. I think it would be unlikely that you had a part go bad, and they replaced it with two defective parts in a row. So it must be something they haven't replaced yet.

I would think that the two rebuilds would have caught a bad synchro, if not then I question the quality of the shop.
