transmission blues

had 2hav 5/spd trans rebuilt.Shop said 5th gear hub broke/split.98wranglr
with less than 131000 miles/6cylndr.Jeep was purchased from auto dealership
and is well maintained.Has anyone heard of any1 else with such symptoms?
I would add after about 3weeks in2 ownership;catalytic converter started rattling.A good friend(D.B.)pulled the converter off knocked out all of the insides installed a good used flow master.Runs like it should now with no adverse affects to fuel mileage/check engine has not come on which I was told may happen.The primary driver/owner so its not drivn wth/a lead foot.But we love the fun we have cruising around.

Welcome. 98 should have the ax-15, which is an okay 5spd, not as strong as some later models, and like any part can go bad.
