03-04 NV1550 5 speed. Noisy 5th gear!

Any other 4 popper owners with the 5 speed (NV1550) from an 03 or an 04 have a lot of gear mesh / rumble noise in 5th gear only? No other issue with shifting etc, it's just noisy in 5th. I rarely drive on the highway or use 5th gear so I never really paid attention to it until recently.

Hope it's not something in my trans and it's just a "Jeep Thing" with our models as I know they are inherently noisy anyway.

Same here - replaced oil

I noticed the same thing last week. I changed the oil (pennzoil synchromesh) and it seems to have become a little quieter but not by much. I put a hard top on my jeep (2004, 2.4L) and it may have been the only reason I noticed the noise coming from the transmission. I now hear it in 3rd and 5th only. 4th is quiet as can be.

Anybody else?
