Wrangler Transmission Reversing Failure

I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ. It is the SE model, with a 2.4 L 4 cylinder engine and a 3 speed automatic transmission. For the past year I've had some severe transmission problems. Everytime I put the shifter to Reverse, the car rumbles very hard and then it coughs really big and dies. Every single time. The only way I can prevent this is by pressing down the gas and THEN shifting into reverse. This is the 2nd 3 speed automatic thats been in this jeep. Every other shift works just fine the way it should, park, drive, lowgear 1 and 2. 4x4 works fine as well.... Any help is appreciated! Thanks.
