5th gear went out

Hey! I'm new to these forums... But I need advice.

I bought a 2012 jeep wrangler Sahara in February back in my home state in Wisconsin. I now live In San Diego due to the navy... Anyway 5th gear went out a few days ago and has since been fixed under warranty. They told me that the fork assembly was bad and now since it has been fixed, shifting in 3,4,5, and 6 is super stuff and doesn't like to pop out of gear very easily compared to how tr transmission used to feel. I've never had a problem with it up until now and I only have 9400 miles on it. Any input or advice?

Take it back and express your concerns. Doesn't sound normal to me. Compare it to one on the dealer lot.
