difficult shifting

i just noticed my '00 tj is giving me some trouble shifting. its a manual tranny. when i try to put it in first or second its hard to actually get the stick to drop into gear even with the clutch all the way down, and sometimes 3rd and 4th too. any ideas? ive got about 51k miles on it.
