3rd gear

I have a 5 Speed trans on my 03TJ and sometimes it's hard to shift into 3rd. I only have 68K miles; is this normal?

(Elwood Blues):... it's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses ...

(Jake Blues):... hit it ...

Did you replace oil? If not doo that. You have an 03 so nv3550 tranny. Search here for oil type. Then go from there.
