08 JKU manual transmission kicks out of 1st gear

So I'm test driving a 2008 JKU with 35in tires and a lift. I'm about 15 minutes down the road when I'm stopped at a stop light. I get on it just a bit and all of the sudden it felt like I was rear ended. The jeep comes out of first gear. What would cause that? It did it a few times. The dealership literally just got it back today from the transmission shop to fix this problem. Guess they didn't quite get it right. Should I run?

Not uncommon in NSG370. I had this happen in my 06 LJ. Replaced fluid with Redline MTL and it only happened once more in 2 years. I've also read somewhere about a shift boot causing issues.

I hated that #%$&ing transmission.
