Hard Shifting

So I've got a 2003 TJ with 50K miles on it...6 cylinder and 5 speed manual tranny...it shifts terribly...it kinda sticks in the gears that I'm coming out of and feels kinda notchy when shifting between gears...definitely not smooth. My last TJ didn't feel this way. Does this symptom sound familiar to anyone?

I have the same issue with my 05 6spd. Had the trans replaced, and it still does it.
