Another tranny question..

I was wondering how to diagnose problems with the transmission. I have a 97 5sp 4.0L with 105,800 miles on it. When I put it in 1st, it is kind of rough going into gear, rough going into 2nd and a little less rough going into 3rd. 4th and 5th go into gear smooth. In reverse, it sometimes grinds but usually its just kind of rough as well. My initial thought is that it's the syncros going. But reverse doesn't have a syncro so could it be the clutch or the slave? The reason that I'm thinking one of those two is that when I let off the clutch, it isn't a smooth release but more of an all of the sudden "catch" and sometimes if I'm in a higher RPM, say around 2500-3000 rpms when I change from 2nd to 3rd, there will be a clunk noise. I think thats just from the power tranfer to the transfer case. Is there a way other than tearing the transmission apart and looking at all the bits and peices to figure out which may be going or should I just not worry about it or take it to a professional? Thanks in advance for any help or advise.

FYI- I changed the gear oil with some Redline MT90 about 3 weeks ago. When I took the plug out, there wasn't a lot of metal shavings stuck to the plug.
